L to R: Ke$ha sneering, Dr. Luke wearing prop headphones for a photo shoot, Flo Rida looking off into the distance.

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)
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 🙂
(Dr. Luke again)
Woah, this track (Katy Perry – “Last Friday Night”) sounds like a few other songs too:
Phoenix “1901” (2009)
Train – “Drive By” (2012) vs. The Wallflowers – “One Headlight” (1997)
The chords are the same as dynamite by Tiao Cruz
Hey Josh, I updated the post! Thanks!
I thought it was more “Hangover” by Taio Cruz that it sounded like mashed with “Good Feeling” (others on the youtube for “Die Young” pointed this out straight away), but then no doubt “Hangover” itself is a recycle.
For Dr Luke others include Jessie J’s Domino being a rewrite of “Last Friday Night”/very Katy Perry. The instrumental bridge of Rihanna’s “Where Have You Been” sounding like “Hold It Against Me” – it’s clear what his contribution to the song was. The collaborator on that song Calvin Harris got comments for Cheryl Cole’s “Call My Name” sounding like “We Found Love” but he does it in a subtle, not identical way.
You should tweet Luke this site, I’m sure he’d love it. 😀 Though he kinda admits to recycling stuff anyway. In this ASCAP masterclass video he catches himself saying “Tik Tok” was ripped off another song but back tracks due to the litigation problems he had, I wonder which song! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uNl1qvXU6fY&feature=player_detailpage#t=154s
One song that was almost admitted to was Kelly Clarkson’s “Since U Been Gone” stealing from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs “Maps”, which the singer Karen O publicly complained about. In this interview he more or less says it, lol @ him pretending not to know what the song was, it’s pretty well known – http://www.billboard.com/features/dr-luke-the-billboard-cover-story-1004112877.story?page=2#/features/dr-luke-the-billboard-cover-story-1004112877.story?page=2
Thanks for all of the info Johnny. I’ve actually seen that ASCAP interview. Somebody else sent it to me a while ago and I was intrigued by him saying “blah blah blah”. It’s actually a Kesha song. I thought he was covering his tracks or something.
Why is Cruz always putting his sunglasses on and off?
Since you mentioned Jessie J here’s one for you:
Kelly Clarkson vs. Beyoncé vs. Christina Perri vs. Jessie J
Also, add avicii levels, I think Flo Rida used it
Avicii got that from Etta James – Something’s Got A Hold On Me.
Die Young also sounds like “we’re the sh*t” by Cady Groves
