Today’s theme is “songs you are convinced are sung by other artists”aka “these sound eerily similar to me” or “do you know where that beat came from?”

Exhibit (A) I’ve been hearing this song on the local alt station (Shinedown, “State of My Mind”) and then Goo Goo Dolls released “So Alive,” which sounds like a muzak version of the Shinedown song. It’s uncannily similar to me.

And the Goo Goo Dolls song. P.S. While I loved the Dizzy Up the Girl album, this new song IS SO BORING from them.

Exhibit (B) I keep hearing this Nelly remix of a country song and I swear the back beat is the Mary Lambert hook in “Same Love.”
