It’s been too long since posting about a Dr. Luke produced song so here we are. Check out Katy Perry‘s recently released track “Roar” and Sara Bareilles track “Brave”.  Even the lyrics are pretty similar. Since Jack Antonoff from the band Fun co-wrote “Brave” I’m going to add “We Are Young” (2011) here as well since you can hear the clear inspiration.

Katy Perry - "Roar" (August, 2013)
Sara Bareilles - "Brave" (April, 2013)
fun. - "We Are Young (Chorus)" (2011)

Dr. Luke is at it again. This time he’s recycling his own tracks. Have a listen to the guitar hooks in Kesha‘s “Die Young” (2012) and Flo Rida‘s “Good Feeling” (2011). The chord progressions are not identical but similar enough especially with the production tricks.

(Both produced by Dr. Luke)

Flo Rida - "Good Feeling" (2011)

Ke$ha - "Die Young" (2012)

Taio Cruz vs. Kesha vs. Flo Rida on ThatSongSoundsLike.com
One of many photos of Taio Cruz putting on (or taking off) his shades. I’m going to guess he’s just holding his hand there for like 20 minutes.

Josh points out the similarity of Taio Cruz‘ party jam “Dynamite” (2010) . I might’ve just said “good find” or “awesome!” but you know what? This is also produced by Dr. Luke! I know your secrets Dr. Luke and I’m going to write a hit song in 2013.
You just watch me 🙂

Taio Cruz - "Dynamite" (2010)

The Asphalt vs. Daughtry


I came across this gem while doing a little research on Dr. Luke.

Back in 2008 The Asphalt sued the Daughtry camp for the similarity of his song “Feels Like Tonight”.

Daughtry is being sued by Randy Mazick [The Asphalt] because Mazick alleges that the song “Feels Like Tonight” on the album “Daughtry” is a copy of Mazick’s own song called “Tonight.” The lawsuit says Mazick said his band, The Asphalt, first performed the song in 2005, ahead of Daughtry’s 2006 release. – macworld

According to wikipedia the case was eventually settled out of court.

The Asphalt - "Tonight" (2005)

Daughtry - "Feels Like Tonight" (2006)
