    The similarities between "Good 4 U" and "Misery Business" are not just in your head, I promise.

    If you have access to a device that plays music, there is almost no chance you haven't heard this song.

    You might have noticed some similarities between "Good 4 U" and Paramore's teen punk anthem "Misery Business," which came out all the way back in 2007, when Olivia was 4 years old.

    Well, Olivia and her team are acknowledging those similarities now by giving Paramore members Hayley Williams and Josh Farro a writing credit on "Good 4 U."

    This is the third song from Sour to have writers added after its release. Taylor Swift was added as a co-writer to "Déjà vu" and "1 Step Forward, 3 Steps Back."

    Paramore's publisher, Warner Chappell Music, celebrated the new addition, and Hayley herself posted it to her Instagram story.
