Almost all songs are inspired, at least in part, by those which have come before them. However, sometimes a song bares such a likeness to its influences that it veers dangerously into the realms of plagiarism. Today I look at seven such songs that, to varying degrees, 'rip off' other songs.

Also, I forgot to title on screen that the version of ‘Bad Guy’ used at 1:29 is by Seth Everman. You can view the full cover here: https://youtu.be/VSPuRXkUWoU 🌝
