I keep telling myself that I’m done posting about One Direction on this site but they just keep coming. Here’s a taste of one of their new singles “Night Changes”. As you can see from the photo above The Boss and the dude from The Script don’t seem to happy.
One Direction - "Night Changes" (2014)
The Script - "I’m Yours" (2008)
Bruce Springsteen - "You’ll Be Comin’ Down" (2007)
Whitney Houston - "I Wanna Dance with Somebody" (1987)
Darren suggests the following track by Danish metal band Volbeat and I have to agree. Thanks!
Volbeat - "Heaven Nor Hell" (2010)

Wow. I mean, wow. I didn’t think I could hate One Direction any more after their blatant Who ripoff, but… no.
No, no, no.
One Direction, you do NOT mess with the boss!
Ugh… I’m going to bed.
Blue, red and grey, right???
Bruce is no saint either. I hear a lot of melodies from other songs in his work going back decades.
This and Where Do Broken Hearts Go? could suggest the songwriters like Whitney, plus I found out where broken hearts go, a website stated they go to Heartbreak Hotel.
i swear scripts is like something else..
and one direction and springsteen both are like something else to…
really throwing the brain in overdrive trying to figure it out..
ugh.. scripts is a slower version of something.. i wanna say.. something in country genre…
cant believe i havent figured it out yet…
I know something country it’s driving me crazy. Something with the word changes in it maybe?
Yaz- only you
Need You Now – Lady Antebellum
Got that one here for the Alan Parsons Project
oh the boss.. that reminds me of the following
how they got away with it.. idk
Wow. Heard that one immediately!
heres one that made court
the verve: bittersweet symphony
andrew oldham orchestra: the last time
andrew oldham orchestra had credited there version to the rolling stones:
the verve did have permission to sample the orchestra version..
however.. it was successfully argued that the verve took too much and therefore the verve lost 100% rights to bittersweet symphony..
literally lost 100% rights to it..
Oh yeah.. I could’ve sworn I posted this before but have not yet. It should’ve been up there with my Vanilla Ice post when I started the site 🙂
Hey Now – Hilary Duff that one part sounds like the chorus for Night Changes
Volbeat – Heaven nor Hell
Thanks Darren! I just added this to the post.
Listen to the chorus of Night Changes and the chorus of the song I sent
Viva La Vida – Cold Play
“I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field”
it could be just me having a bit to many…
but im kinda hearing night changes in the verse on this
YAZ- Only You
It’s the oldest of all the songs listed.
Yes! I totally agree with you! I was about to post the same song
Cool – Gwen Stefani
“Hey, mister tambourine man…
Play a song for me…”
That’s what it seems to have grown out of to me.
1D “Night Changes” reminds me of David Bowie’s “Changes” a little.
Yeah! I thought at first it was their song that was played in Shrek 2.
what about Cool by Gwen Stefani it sounds similar too
I swear Bruce Sprignsteen’s You’ll Be Comin Down reminds me of another, slower song. Maybe with a female voice? I can’t figure it out.
That’s exactly what I thought and have just posted something similar. It’s a mystery song I’ve been trying to find the name of for at least 15 years.
Rebel Rebel david Bowie!
Westlife – change the world !!! It took me ages to figure it out
Reminds me of Gwen Stefani’s Cool
There’s a particular part to Night Changes and You’ll Be Coming Down that both sound similar to a song that I have been trying to remember the name of and who sings it for over 15 years. I think there may even be an REM song that also sounds close to this elusive song that I am still searching for. If memory serves I think my mystery song had a female singer. Crazy thing is that I can hum the tune but just can’t remember the words. I’d be ever grateful for any help and advice for finding out what the song is that has been in my head all these years, thank you.
R.E.M.’s At My Most Beautiful, The Magnetic Fields – Born on a Train and Bruce Springsteen’s Your Own Worst Enemy all sound similar – and imo all quite similar to Night Changes and You’ll Be Comin’ Down too – does that help your path at all?
Some people think it sounds like Bowie “changes@ the only part that is similar to me is the cadence in the chorus when they both say changes.. but it sounds just like a mix of “you’ll be coming down” and “I’m yours”..
Also it has some similarities with “Mr tambourine man” by the byrds.
