Musical coincidences # 349

This coincidence is brought to you by my friend – and supplier of horrible music from the 1980s – Michael (Hi, Michael!) who heard a recent-ish Christmas song from British band Farrah and mentioned that he thought “it borrows a little of The Logical Song by Supertramp“.

That, my good man, is an understatement. To me, this coincidence falls into the “you can’t miss it” category.

Supertramp – “The Logical Song (1979) (excerpt)

Farrah – “Santa Don’t Go (2010) (excerpt)

For me, that is so obvious that I’m inclined to think it may have been a deliberate homage from Farrah. (It probably was, otherwise why would you add those castanets to the electric piano, just like in “The Logical Song”? Hmmm?)

Here are the full versions:

Farrah – “Santa Don’t Go (2010)
