Tommy Newport “Movie Screen” Sounds like The Strokes

Lazy Photoshop

I heard this song playing on the radio the other day and thought it was a cover of The Strokes 2001 jam “Is This It?”.


Then I found out it was a song called “Movie Screen” (2019) by Tommy Newport.

And this is why I still run this website.

The End.

Pat Finnerty is my new Hero

Pat FinnertyHow am I only just finding about this guy now???!!  Pat! Where have you been all my life?! My friend Ilan sent me one of Pat Finnerty‘s “What Makes This Song Stink” videos of The Red Hot Chili Peppers’ “Dani California” (see below) and it’s basically a 40 minute version of a ThatSongSoundsLike post and I love it.  You can also find Pat Finnerty on Instagram where he famously (now I know about this, duh) got Dave Grohl to join him on IG Live. He’s been posting these Song Stinks videos as a series and I will be sure to post more of these here.

Harry Styles “As It Was” sounds a lot like a-ha “Take on Me”

If you’ve heard Harry Styles’ 2022 chart topper “As It Was” you might have heard a familiar sounding hook. The main keyboard hook in Styles’ track sounds strikingly similar to the 1984 a-ha track “Take on Me”.  Here are some isolated clips of that riff:



YouTuber AnDyWuMUSICLAND even made a great mashup of the two tracks here:


Here are both songs in full:

Harry Styles – “As It Was” (2022)
