Ray Parker Jr. and Huey Lewis have been hiding in Michael Jackson’s afro this whole time.
I’ve posted about Huey Lewis & The New’s “I Want a New Drug” and Ray Parker’s Ghostbuster’s Theme a number of times but I was just listening to some MJ the other day and noticed a strong similarity in The Jackson 5’s 1978 “Shake Your Body (Down to the Ground)”. While the lawsuits were flying in the Lewis/Parker camp I’m surprised nobody brought up this precursor to the mix.
Have a listen!
Michael Jackson (Jackson 5) - "Shake Your Body (Down to the Ground)" (1978)
Huey Lewis & The News - "I Want a New Drug (intro)" (1984)
Ray Parker Jr. - "Ghostbusters Theme (intro)" (1984)

Al Green: you say it.
I’ll have to post this one as well.
while your on
who could forget this one
heres a classic.
verve: bitter sweet symphony
andrew oldham orchestra: the last time
of course credit for the orchestra was given to Rolling Stones
Rolling Stones: the last time
verve did have permission to sample the orchestra version for bittersweet symphony HOWEVER they apparently took too much of it which as a result the verve lost all rights to bittersweet symphony.
rolling stones: anybody seen my baby
kd lang: constant craving
And Body Language (1975) by the Jackson 5 sounds like a combination of War by Edwin Starr (1970?) and Play that Funky Music.
And Jumbo Sam sounds like I Was Made to Love Her by Stevie Wonder.
