Musical coincidences # 276

July 20, 2012

Here’s another coincidence suggested by my friend Michael (Hi, Michael!).

First up, we have the start of a song by Dutch all-girl band Girlie (no jokes about dykes, please):

Girlie – “Hello, Hello” (1979) (excerpt)

Michael hinted that a certain J. Morrison might have been a bit miffed at Girlie pinching their tune:

The Doors – “Hello, I Love You (1968) (excerpt)

Link

But Mr. Morrison and co. weren’t above pinching it themselves:

The Kinks – “All Day And All Of The Night (1964) (excerpt)

Link

Here are the full versions:

Girlie – “Hello, Hello” (1979)

The Doors – “Hello, I Love You (1968)
