Collateral -Angels crying
That morning I started listening to the Runaway to the paradise-Mediterranean Spotify playlist.
Suddenly a familiar melody started sounding.
I checked the artist and the song,and listened to it till the end.
The melody,the pre chorus,the chorus and the final solo are totally a rip off of Walk Like A Man by BJ.
That is the song

What do you think?

Wow, that's really brutally obvious!
However, I know from a Canadian singer who was in negotiations with BJM for the rights on this song (probably for a cover) and it didn't work out. Maybe this band just was faster?

Jesus, even the word choices is close. This has to have been cleared right?

Holy Rip off Batman. That's ridiculous. There's no way that they should get away with that!! And also...way to make a fantastic song sound like a run of the mill average tune. The cheesyness of it is embarressing...

The fact is that this band is playing in the upcoming cruise from Barcelona and somebody from the BJ camp had to add that song to the Spotify playlist,so my questions are if that person knows that this song is a rip off of Walk like a man,if they dont know o evn worse,if they dont know Walk like a man?
What would Jon think if he listen to that song on the boat?
I have never listened to such an obvious rip off

I think that Jon would not remember this song. :mrgreen:

The fact that they are playing the cruise leads me to think it was done through official channels and they got some credit maybe? I wonder what the involvement is.

For once Bon Jovi aren't the ones ripping off songs.

BonJovi100 07-25-2019 08:24 PM

Maybe it's one of this songs which are sending by ghost writers for others artists?

Captain_jovi 07-25-2019 09:00 PM

I think because Walk Like a Man was officially released they would have to be credited because it legally exists as a song, right?
