Have you heard what the next single release will be from the band Take That? It is a track from their 2010 album Progress and will be released at the end of this month. If you haven’t heard the song before, here it is here.

Take That – Kidz

Doesn’t some of that sound just a wee bit familiar? Struggling to think where it sounds familiar from, worry no more;

Kinks – Sunny Afternoon

Certainly some simlarities there, not necessarily a rip off of course, but maybe a bit too close for comfort for the music listeners ears. According to Wikipedia, under the page for the Kinks song Sunny Afternoon, Take That used the music to the song as the backing track for their own. A look at the Wikipedia page for the Take That song and there is no such mention!

Plenty of other songs out there that sound a bit too similar to other songs. Just for fun, can you name any other ones?
