Favourite Rip-Off Songs?

Good composers borrow; great composers steal. Some get caught. What are your favorite songs that have “borrowed” from other songs.

Mine are:

Elastica's Connection (Three Girl Rumba by Wire)

Radiohead's Creep (The Air That I Breathe by The Hollies)

The Verve's Bittersweet Symphony (The Last Time by The Andrew Oldham Orchestra/Rolling Stones)
(The Verve actually asked permission to "sample" it, but the Rolling Stones thought it was too much)

Nirvana's Come As You Are (Eighties by Killing Joke)

  • Oasis - Step Out (Uptight by Stevie Wonder) - the chorus

    You might
    Think you're gonna cry
    It will be all right
    Step out tonight

    Baby, ev'rything is all right, uptight, out of sight.

    This song was originally intended for the (What's the Story) Morning Glory? album but was taken off after Stevie Wonder requested 10% of the royalties. Sobrang collectors copy tuloy nung mga WTSMG album na may Step Out.
