Dr. Luke vs. The World

Dr. Luke vs. The World

Lukasz Gottwald (aka Dr. Luke) is making headlines this week as Ke$ha checks in to rehab for an eating disorder. Word is he has a history of verbal abuse. I’ll leave that news to the experts at People Magazine. A Ke$ha fan has even created an online petition called “Let Ke$ha have creative freedom“.

So let me take this opportunity to present a compilation of Dr. Luke produced tracks over the years and the songs that they sound like. Enjoy!


Dr. Luke (Lukasz Gottwald) has been racking up the hits in the last few years for artists like Katy Perry, Britney Spears and Ke$ha. He’s also been at the center of numerous copyright infringement cases. And of course made many appearances on ThatSongSoundsLike. I thought it might be interesting if I compiled a bunch together in one post. Enjoy!

    Another song similarity concerning Avril is the riff from I Always Get What I Want, which sounds like a Green Day riff.

    1. Mark Adams

      And the ‘Hey Hey You You’s from the Avril Lavigne vs The Rubinoos is also in Get Off of My Cloud by The Rolling Stones (1965).

      1. Mark Adams

        While I’m on the subject Shake Your Hips by The Rolling Stones (1972) and La Grange by ZZ Top (1973) have the same groove.

        1. Mark Adams

          While I’m on the subject, The Humphrey Bear theme song sounds like Could This Be Magic by Van Halen(1980), which in turn sounds like John St. Clair by John Lennon and that is probably based on a slide guitar melody.

        2. Mark Adams

          Big Bad Moon by Joe Satriani (1989) also has the same groove as Shake Your Hips, La Grange and Bottoms Up.

    Kelly Clarkson vs. The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, YES! I’ve always heard that similarity in the bridge, there’s no denying it.
