9 Songs That Blatantly Ripped Off Other Songs In 2013

Just try to keep in mind that talent borrows, and genius steals.

1. Katy Perry’s “Roar” sounds exactly like…

…Sara Bareilles’ “Brave.”

2. Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines”…

…sounds so much like Marvin Gaye’s “Got to Give It Up” that Gaye’s family is suing him.

3. One Direction’s “Best Song Ever”…

…strongly resembles The Who’s “Baba O’Riley.”

4. The intro of Haim’s “The Wire”…

…is a dead ringer for The Eagles’ “Heartache Tonight.”

5. The main instrumental hook of Daft Punk’s “Fragments of Time”…

…is a slightly rewritten version of The Doobie Brothers’ “What a Fool Believes.”

6. Fall Out Boy’s “Young Volcanoes”…

…is a little too much like Train’s “Hey Soul Sister.”

7. Bruno Mars’ “Treasure”…

…is suspiciously similar to Breakbot’s “Baby I’m Yours.”

8. Will.I.Am and Chris Brown’s “Let’s Go”…

…borrows quite a bit from Arty & Mat Zo’s “Rebound.”

9. Britney Spears’ “Now That I Found You”…

…sounds a LOT like Avicii’s “Wake Me Up.”
