'Borrowed' songs

Post by Billy Whizz » Sun Mar 24, 2019 2:21 am

Can someone remind me of a few of the tracks that Spiritualized may have 'borrowed' from over the years? For example, the song that's pretty much the same as the second half of Hey Jane?

Pachelbel's very famous and familiar Canon in D is commonly referenced for many modern songs that use a similar chord sequence and descending bass line, such as Ladies And Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space.

I don't know the name of the older song similar to Hey Jane, that was posted here back in 2011. However although I haven't got a guitar to hand, I suspect that song's chord progression has been easily repeated through the ease with which those open chords fall to hand - in my head it sounds like a simple sequence of D, D, D, D, D, D, D, D maj sus2 (ie dropping the 2nd fret of the top E to let the open string ring) > A > E, repeating until the new key begins after the mid song breakdown.

My favourite is still the mystery of the Candy Crush music and The Prize.
