The “neti-sphere” is on fire this week over yet another plagiarism debate. This time, the comparison is being made between BIGBANG “Sober” vs The Wanted “Glad You Came”. I’ll post both videos so you can hear it. Apparently, the similarities begin at the chorus. According to netizens, they sound exactly alike at the 1 minute mark for both songs.
I will say this. It is very easy to hear similarities in all popular music around the world since many people use the same producers, similar instrumentals and/or same song-writers. I’m not one to say this is a case of plagiarism. I just think these are two songs that sound alike and like every other song on the radio. It’s not an outright “case of the song snatcher”.
Can you hear the similarities? Is it plagiarism?
