Ridiculous detail
« on: Tue, 2005-02-01, 13:33:24 »
I don't where to post this... could be here, could be Off Topic, could be Metaphysical :P

The thing is that I was listening to U2's new album. When I got to track 5 "City of blindind lights", I suddenly heard a melody that I recognized... After a few seconds I said "Pendragon!". Then I played the song again, and after listening to it 2 or 3 more times I said "Queen of hearts!"  :o and went to play it.
So, what I'm saying is: they use the same melody that's in the keyboard bridge right before "The Last Waltz", I swear! OK, it's a 3-4 second bridge... and it's quite a simple melody... 4 or 5 notes...  ::) But, for some reason, I immediately recognized it...
Yeah, I'm crazy, I know...  :P But check it out if you have the chance!  :D

Well, I've got both albums so I'll check it out tonite.

Try posting that on a U2 forum and see what reaction you get  ;)

Are you inclined to make short mp3 snapshots of those passages and put them on a website?

Hehe, I told this to a U2 fan, but fortunately I managed to base my defense on insanity :P Anyway, it's not an accusation or anything like that, just coincidence.
I can upload the snapshots, but it doesn't seem to be allowed here... i f it is, I will. If it's not... tell me where and I'll upload it.
Can't believe I draw some attention to this, next time I'll come up with a big set up scandal  ;D 8)

Don't think anything will come of this.

But, imagine if it had been the other way round. Nick'd be getting a right hammering now.

But let's face it there are countless tracks have bits that 'sound like' something else

Anyway, who's got their tickets for the Aylesbury gig?

Well Gollum, you're absolutely right  ;D . Nice one, I'd never have spotted that..!!

Do know of a couple of others though...

The intros to Iron Maiden's "Invaders" and the Dogs D'Amour's "Medicine Man" are identical, as are the intros to Marillion's "Cinderella Search" and Genesis "Me & Virgil" (I think it's that one anyway, it's one of the ones off the Paperlate EP).

 ;D

Not wanting to get anyone in trouble here but while we are talking similarities, try checking out Pendragons "Last Man on Earth", on "Window of Life", the bit where Nick sings "But I'm never gonna lose your precious heart.....", and then compare it to the Moody Blues song "New Horizons" which features the line "But I’m never going to lose your precious gift....".

Exactly the same tune and virtually the same lyrics!

Despite being a Moodys fan, I still prefer pendragon! :)
