Musical coincidences # 396

Enormously helpful blog visitor Michael has not only suggested this coincidence, but also edited the audio files for fabulous listenability (as in “Wow, I can really hear the coincidence!”).

Firstly, Michael messed about with his audio editing program and “tuned up” one of the pieces of music so that both pieces match. Each excerpt is four seconds in length*:

Joe Jackson – “Is She Really Going Out With Him? (1978) (excerpt) /
The Raconteurs – “Steady, As She Goes (2006) (excerpt)

Here are the excerpts au naturel(or “untuned”):

Joe Jackson – “Is She Really Going Out With Him? (1978) (excerpt) /
The Raconteurs – “Steady, As She Goes” (2006) (excerpt)

Thanks for all of that, young Michael.

Here are the full versions:

Joe Jackson – “Is She Really Going Out With Him? (1978)

The Raconteurs – “Steady, As She Goes (2006)
