Fooled Around and Fell In Love

and

If This Is It - Huey Lewis and the News


That's funny. My old Utah band played Fooled Around, because our singer could pull it off. When I suggested If This Is It, they said it was too cheesy.

These two riffs sound somewhat similar to me.

 

Ozzy's "Diarrhea of a Madman", riff begins 20 seconds in.

 

 

Enya's "Cursum Perficio", riff begins at beginning.

 

 

and aren't they both kind of re-workings of Carmina Burana?

Just listened. Interesting.

 

Pyro and everything...

 

 

I had no idea Orf wrote that piece.

The long build-up section beginning at 2:30 in Diary of a Madman reminds me of the vibe that's happening in Nights in White Satin.

When Dennis DeYoung yells "superstars" at 3:20 I think of the way Zlad yells "superstar" at 2:12.  :rolleyes:

 "Start Again" from Alex's solo album rips off Led Zeppelin's "Four Sticks" riff...

These two videos are basically thread over. Damn, I hate to think about the amount of time this guy put into these. Apparently, coming up with cool, original riffs and melodies is pretty hard and getting harder.

 

The 8:25 mark of the first video will be of particular interest to Rush fans.

Does an intentional homage count?

Gabriel's lawyers might have an opinion on that. It doesn't sound too blatant to me though.

What has this band done to Dream Theater?!!? The authorities need to be notified! Dream Theater might be gagged inside a trunk right now!

at about the 4:08 mark you'll hear a familiar riff - I have no issue with lifting a little bit here and there, it's fun exposing kids of a current generation to awesomeness of music rom yesteryear
