Cause You Gotta Have Faith
When a new song is released that sounds like a familiar classic, the challenge is to not immediately discount the new song based on originality. However recently Matt Nathanson’s song “Faster” sounds so much like George Michael’s 1980’s hit “Faith” it is extremely difficult for me to get the other out of my mind. I would imagine the same feeling occurred when Inxs released “Need You Tonight” because the riff rhythm sounds like Queen’s “Another One Bites The Dust”.
Do you discount songs based on the fact they immediately sound like others or do you enjoy the song for what it is? By the way, isn’t interesting both tunes are one word and start with the letter “F”?
