blink-182 vs The Cure

I’ve been meaning to post the Angels & Airwaves “Everything’s Magic” (2007) bassline similarity to The Cure’s 1985 “Close to Me” and then Blink-182’s new album in 2023 came out and Hoppus’ bassline in “Fell in Love” followed the same pattern so I had to post. Have a listen!

The Cure – “Close to Me” (1985)

Blink-182 – “Fell in Love” (2023)

Angels & Airwaves – “Everything’s Magic” (2007)

Goldfinger “Superman” vs. Green Day “Basket Case”

I was recently chatting with my friend Lawrence (check out his website if you’re into DIY guitar gear!) about songwriting and good ‘ol Pachelbel’s Canon which so much pop music is based on and he mentioned Goldfinger’s 1997 track “Superman” (which was later made more popular by Tony Hawk’s video game franchise) and Green Day’s 1994 single “Basket Case”.  I’ll just drop these clips here for ya.

The Rolling Stones are being sued

I think the most shocking part of this post is that The Rolling Stones are still around.  Anyway, back in 2020 during the height of COVID lockdown the Stones recorded a song called “Living In A Ghost Town”. Some guy named Sergio Garcia Fernandez wrote a few songs back in 2006/2007 that he had personally shared with a family member of the Jagger’s.  I learned all of this from Yahoo!

The least exciting part about this is how mediocre the music is. I admittedly don’t spend very much time passing judgement on quality of music on this website but, well, have a listen. Do they sound very similar? Can you even spend the time listening when there is so much other great music to listen to?

Also, for whatever reason when I google “Rolling Stones Members” Mick Jagger is listed as “Harmonica”
