Am I the only one who noticed this about "Stay The Night"?

Posted · Report post

The riff played at the opening and after the second chorus sounds exactly like the opening to "Up Where We Belong" by Joe Cocker & Jennifer Warnes. Here, listen:

I wouldn't say "exactly". There sure are a few notes that are the same but the two melodies are not "exactly" the same, they're just kinda similar.

The more interesting thing I noticed about "Stay the Night" is that the opening sounds exactly like a guitar version of Beethoven's 9th.

Being a guitarist I can tell you that the notes used in the both song are basic.

So that's not a big deal.

If you listen to the intro for 99 Revolutions, it's almost the same as the riff in Bruce Springsteen's " No Surrender"

Oh yay, the old "this song sounds like an older songs, so that means that Billie is a thieving asshole, let's stop liking them!" argument.
