Chrissy vs. Ke$ha

Back in March 2011 local unsigned artist Chrissy filed a copyright infringement case against Ke$ha and the Dr. Luke camp for the similarity of  Ke$ha’s “Tik Tok” (2009) and her track “My Slushy” (2007) .  After the release of  “Tik Tok” many Chrissy fans instantly pointed out the similarities of the two. Many of them have noted that Ke$ha’s overall vocal style, lyrics and image were borrowed from Chrissy.

“My Slushy” gained wide notoriety in the hit  online Japanese game  “Audition” back in 2006.  Music site Vlaze has also had Slushy up on their site since March 31, 2007.

According to The Hollywood Reporter Gottwald has also been known to fight back with  counter defamation suits when an artist cries foul. “My Slushy” is currently being put to the test in the justice system.  While we await a verdict here’s a sample of verses from both tracks:

While we await the verdict have a listen to some excerpts below:

Ke$ha - "Tik Tok" (2009)

Chrissy - "My Slushy" (2007)

    Everyone knows the truth and it’s never been hidden very well since this all began Kesha was created in Chrissy’s likeness, vocals, placed in all of the same mediums Chrissy was already established in like the Dance Audition video game, the Fox shows, the list goes on when the label couldn’t find an image and sound for Kesha after the Katy Perry and Taylor Swift personas did not work so they used Chrissy’s very unique schtick. Sony probably didn’t even know it was stolen becaue the man who signed her Barry Weiss said they didn’t even know what to do with her then Tik Tok came into their laps. New York Times says. It is all up to Dr. Luke.

    Chrissy aside, I always thought “Tik Tok” sounded a whole lot like the much earlier song, “Le Disko,” by Shiny Toy Guns, which was first recorded in 2004 (but released in its final version to wider acclaim in 2006.) That whole manner of speak-singing over a straight disco beat (at nearly the same tempo) is just all too familiar-sounding, if you ask me.
    Hear for yourself!

    To “really?”, well, that is interesting seeing as how Rich Cronin (who is now dead) who was the founder and creator of LFO had been Chrissy’s co writer on her material since the late 90’s when LFO’s producers Underground signed her to a production deal back in the late 90’s. Half of that material was recorded in the late 90’s and early 2000 (and released later on). Really, how can LFO sue Chrissy when they were collaborators together on this material back in the day? (Really, they can sue themselves??) The people who launched LFO were Chrissy’s producers and managers and Rich Cronin (who died last year after a sad and long battle with lymphoma) had been a co writer on her material for over a decade. Chrissy and the LFO people are the ones being sued even though they made this music first. Chrissy’s song history with Rich Cronin (LFO) and their producers goes way back to the days of the Clinton administration. Please respect the dead aka Rich Cronin and the talented originators. All of those songs were created during the same era preceding the “Kesha phenomenon” by years and years. Thank you.

    I always thought the Ke$ha song sounded like it had ripped somewhat from Justice’s Tthheee Ppaarrttyy as well.

    Here’s something else that sounds very much like these two songs: The New Style by the Beastie Boys. Start at 3:24.
