MIKA’s Lollipop was lifted right from a Jackie Chan film


Thanks to Darren for sending in this great, obscure soundalike.

OK, it’s not really Jackie Chan singing (at least I don’t think it is) but this is the closing credit song to a 1983 Chan film called “Winners & Sinners“. I found a German translated version on YouTube but I think the song is still in Chinese. MIKA‘s “Lollipop” chorus sounds EXACTLY like this melody. Check it out:

MIKA - "Lollipop" (2007)

Winners and Sinners - "End Credit" (1983)

I also noticed the overall derivative nature from the 1958 classic “The Lollipop Song“. Perhaps these are both a nod to this classic. Have a listen:

Ronald and Ruby - "Lollipop" (1958)

Here’s the full movie of  “Winners & Sinners” (translated to German). Start at the end credits around 1h28m59s or just click here.
