Do you ever notice soundalike songs or musicians? I wouldn’t say this happens to me all that often, but recently, I’ve been struck by a soundalike playing on my radio. The pop stations (and a commercial – I think for Sirius radio) are playing a song by Sara Bareilles called, “Love Song.” I really like it – it’s catchy, and I like acoustic music and the singer/songwriter vibe. Plus, I’m a sucker for the piano.
A few days ago I heard a song on the contemporary Christian station called, “I’m Letting Go” by Francesca Battistelli. First of all, I just like the song. The words are meaningful to me. But second of all, Wow! It sounds soooo much like “Love Song!”
Or maybe it’s just me. Take a listen. Let me know what you think.
Sara Bareilles – listen here.
Francesca Battistelli – listen here.
Another soundalike for you country music fans (are you out there? anyone? Bueller?): Rodney Carrington sounds just like Tim McGraw to me. Just like him! When I hear a new song by Rodney, I always, always think it’s Tim!
Have you heard any soundalikes lately?
yep, those definitely sound similar, at least at the beginning — and i can’t think of any right now, but it seems that’s usually when songs resemble other songs b/c they’ll be starting & i’ll be like, “oh, it’s ___” but then it’s not
(but i don’t listen to country so i dunno about the other 2, sorry;)
i like that pic, btw :)
Thanks! I need the copyright disclaimer that melilot has on her site, though…
