Musical coincidences # 112

I may need to tread carefully here today, because one of the artists involved in this coincidence belongs to a rather large multinational record company that has a tendency to litigate…

Okey dokey, with that disclaimer out of the way I do want to say that this particular coincidence is extremely small. However, for me it’s extremely noticeable because of how similar the two things are (same key, same guitar notes). I’ve increased the volume of each excerpt because both songs start very quietly.

First up is the band I’d like to not mention specifically for fear of Blogger telling me I can’t. Here’s how this band’s latest single starts:

The jangly guitar part instantly reminded me of the guitar in the right channel at the start of Tal Bachman’s 1999 hit “She’s So High”. I’ve fiddled about a bit with the audio to help you hear it:

Tal Bachman – “She’s So High (1999) (stereo – please focus on the right channel)


Tal Bachman – “She’s So High (1999) (right channel only)


Here are the full versions:

A band you may have heard of – “Walk (2011)
