Katy Perry vs. t.A.T.u.

August 5th, 2011 by

Submitted by Edward

Another one from our friend Dr. Luke. This time we’re listening to Katy Perry‘s “E.T.” (2010) and Russian duo t.A.T.u.‘s breakout hit “All The Things She Said”  (2000).

Even Matthew Cole of Slant magazine writes:

…and on the inscrutable “E.T.” Perry compares her lover (favorably?) to a space alien and Dr. Luke nabs the backing track from t.A.T.u.’s “All the Things She Said,” presumably as a tribute to his forbears in the field of exploitative dance-floor schlock.

    And the chorus of GC’s Festival Song (2000) sounds like that of Forgotten Years by Midnight Oil (1990), but admittedly both are based on two notes.

    This review of Good Morning Revival (2007) by Stephen Thomas Erlewine, which can be found on Allmusic.com and iTunes, states: There’s the Blur/Gorillaz-aping “Keep Your Hands Off My Girl” — its chanting verse borrowed from “We Got a Line on You,” the hook from “Song 2″. Additional names don’t seem to be included, unless there are notes on samples in the album booklet.

    I hope you hated them before, because while you mightn’t like them personally, music goes beyond that.
