John Mayer - "New Light"

My friend Nicole just sent this one to me. I’ve never heard Matt Kearney before but I certainly heard John Mayer’s “New Light” (2018). There are definitely some similarities here. While listening to Kearney’s “Can’t Look Back” I also started to hear some of Coldplay’s “Viva La Vida”. Have a listen below!

Did Justin Bieber “Anyone” Rip from Toto?

Thanks to Ilan for sending this my way.

The chorus similarity of Justin Bieber’s 2021 track “Anyone” is undeniably similar to Toto’s “Goin’ Home” (1989).

Rick Beato on YouTube does an excellent job breaking it all down here:

Check out the keyboard riff in “Broken”. Pretty similar to “Kids” right?

Also funny that one band is stylized in lower case and the other in CAPS.

I also started to hear a similarity with Katy Perry in the chorus. Have a listen!
