That’s right, Paris Hilton recorded an album in 2006. “Stars are Blind” sounds a wee bit like Lord Creator‘s “Kingston Town” (made popular more recently by UB40). Turns out Paris Hilton’s label was sued. I can’t find much info about this but it seems that the press was misinformed that UB40 is not the copyright holder – Lord Creator is.
V2 Music Publishing, Warner Chappell Music and Hilton’s songwriter/producer Fernando Garibay are being sued by Sparta Florida Music Group, who allege parts of the track are lifted from UB40 classic Kingston Town. The GBP250,000 ($500,000) writ, filed in London’s High Court, claims breach of copyright.

well, that explains why it was the only ‘listenable’ song on her record.
What about “Little Talks” by “Of Monsters and Men” VS “Alabama Arkansas” by “Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes” ?
It’s identical. You may have already posted it.
always loved the original Lord Creator version. tbh the UB40 cover pretty much blows. hilton’s tune… speaks for itself. lol
