Musical coincidences # 254

June 4, 2012

My friend Steve (Hi, Steve!) recently let me know about a couple of mighty informative Cracked articles highlighting musical coincidences:

Both articles are chock full of coincidences I never knew before. I don’t need to start putting them all here (‘cos they’re there), but I do want to mention one from the “5 Most Famous Musicians…” article because it made me go “Wow! I mean, wow! That’s just… wow! I can’t believe… wow!” etc.

I find this amazing:

Deep Purple – “Smoke On The Water (1972) (excerpt)

Astrud Gilberto – “Maria Quiet” (1965) (excerpt)

Wow.

Here are the full versions:

Deep Purple – “Smoke On The Water (1972)

Astrud Gilberto – “Maria Quiet” (1965)

Wow.
