iFive - 9th Dec

It's amazing just how much is stolen in the world of music. Look What You've Done by Jet is a mod of the opening Don't Look Back in Anger by Oasis which itself is rip from Imagine by John Lennon. The new Madonna single has the hook from Gimme Gimme Gimme by Abba and even the Beatles stole She Loves You for use in All You Need Is Love by themselves.

Then there's The Byrds who stole from Ecclesiates. In the context of their album it was supposed to show the utter futility of the Vietnam War but all it did in reality was prove that there is nothing new under the sun.

1. Look What You've Done - Jet
2. Gimme Gimme Gimme - Abba
3. Pass Me Down The Wine - Oasis
4. All You Need Is Love - The Beatles
5. Turn Turn Turn - The Byrds
