Plagiarism or Downright Theft?

I must have played this song dozens of times but it wasn't until Saturday Night and the aid of a couple of Tanquerays that I realised just what a debt Eddie Wilson owed to Burt Bacharach and Bob Hillard's Any Day Now. It's an absolute rip-off.

Still a brilliant song though.

Eddie Wilson - Toast To The Lady

Phew - cheeky chunk of pop-lifting. By his own admission, Bowie is a magpie of pop - but check this he lifted Michael Chapman's sound, style and guitarist. These were recorded a year or two before MWSTW...

Cheers for those Mond.
