Sounds Like Teen Spirit: Stolen Melodies, Ripped-Off Riffs, and the Secret History of Rock and Roll

Tonight, I get to spend some time talking to a fellow music geek – Tim English, author of the book “Sounds Like Teen Spirit” (buy the book now on Amazon), an analysis of songs that just happen to sound like other songs. Not quite cover songs, but borrowed lyrics and melodies. Here’s what’s on the show tonight:

Title Artist Similar to Artist
Stairway to Heaven Led Zeppelin Taurus Spirit
Beautiful Day U2 The Sun Always Shines on T.V. a-ha
Imagine John Lennon That’s My Life Freddie Lennon
Do Ya Think I’m Sexy? Rod Stewart Taj Mahal Jorge Ben
You Give Love A Bad Name Bon Jovi If You Were A Woman Bonnie Tyler
