Musical coincidences # 105

This coincidence, like the one yesterday, was suggested by Mr. Fabulous who reckons that these two tracks sound alike:

Creedence Clearwater Revival – “Born On The Bayou (1969) (excerpt)

Link

k.d. lang – “Just Keep me Moving (1993) (excerpt)

Link

Maybe. But to me, that Creedence track sounds more like this…

Jellyfish – “He’s My Best Friend” (1993) (excerpt)

Here are the full versions so you can decide for yourself what sounds like what (or not):

Creedence Clearwater Revival – “Born On The Bayou (1969)

k.d. lang – “Just Keep me Moving (1993)

Musical coincidences # 58

December 9, 2010

This morning I was over at Popdose, a website I visit every day (along with about 15 other blogs and websites). One of their posts had a song by Nick Lowe called “Stick It Where The Sun Don’t Shine”. I hadn’t heard it before, but as soon as it started I thought “Hey, that sounds just like ‘Green River‘!”

Here are the two songs in question. Please note the beginnings of both songs:

Nick Lowe – “Stick It Where The Sun Don’t Shine” (1982)

Creedence Clearwater Revival – “Green River (1969)

As a bonus, here’s Nick playing his song live:

Nick Lowe And His Noise To Go – “Stick It Where The Sun Don’t Shine” (live) (1982)
