The Asphalt vs. Daughtry


I came across this gem while doing a little research on Dr. Luke.

Back in 2008 The Asphalt sued the Daughtry camp for the similarity of his song “Feels Like Tonight”.

Daughtry is being sued by Randy Mazick [The Asphalt] because Mazick alleges that the song “Feels Like Tonight” on the album “Daughtry” is a copy of Mazick’s own song called “Tonight.” The lawsuit says Mazick said his band, The Asphalt, first performed the song in 2005, ahead of Daughtry’s 2006 release. – macworld

According to wikipedia the case was eventually settled out of court.

The Asphalt - "Tonight" (2005)

Britney Spears vs. Barbra Streisand

Britney Spears’ “Oops!… I Did It Again” was an international #1 hit in 2000. So was Barbra Streisand’s “Woman in Love” in 1980. These melodies are very similar. But don’t blame Britney, she didn’t write the song.  Credits include Max Martin who has also worked with Dr. Luke on tracks like this.
