Musical coincidences # 197

March 15, 2012

I was over at the splendiferous Powerpopaholic blog a couple of days ago, where PPA (Hi, Big P!) reviewed a couple of new albums. One of them is El Diablo Sin Corazon by The Heartless Devils, and there was a song from the album to accompany the review. I pressed “play”, and the instant it started I thought “Oh-oh”…

The Heartless Devils – “Bad Luck Charm” (2012) (excerpt)


Cheap Trick – “Stiff Competition” (1978) (excerpt)


Here are the full versions:

The Heartless Devils – “Bad Luck Charm” (2012)

Cheap Trick – “Stiff Competition” (1978)


Thanks, PPA, for letting me know about the song – and inadvertently creating this coincidence.
