#1 Spice Girls had a huge hit with Say You'll Be There, but the chorus sounds incredibly similar to



Which was released in 1995, whereas SYBT was released in 96. Plus, the plot thickens, in a list of her favourite singers/groups Posh Spice said...After 7.

I'm a fan, but Noel Gallagher is the king of this thread

Telstras current jingle sounds like Toyota's 'oh what a feeling' but with a couple of extra notes added to avoid a plagiarism lawsuit.

So Toyota's is "oh what a feeling"
Telstra's sounds more like:
"Oh oh what what a feeling"

Also, the officeworks jingle sounds Like Johnny Cash's Ring of Fire, but missing a few notes..
Google it, and listen up, I'm right On both counts.

And if there's any resulting lawsuits after this post, I am claiming 20% of the totals of any payout!

Because the second I heard both Telstras' and Officeworks' jingles, I immediately thought of those other tunes...
Hank Azaria not playing Apu on the Simpsons will make the role as irrelevant as the Simpsons has been as a series since 1999!
