Amazing coincidences: who from the Russian stars looking for a Muse on the side
MOSCOW, 30 Nov — RIA Novosti. Police arrested the French composer Didier Marouani on suspicion in extortion of Philip Kirkorov. Earlier Marouani filed a lawsuit to recover from the singer 75 million rubles for plagiarism.
The composer claimed the song of Kirkorov “tough love” is recycling his “Symphonic Space Dream”. The musician has already released, but he was going to sue for libel. We looked at what other local stars could be inspired by other people’s hits.

No matter how many hits has released the Tree, many still remember her for “the Provence”.
Elka – Provence
However, this song to shame similar to the Shame On You song by the canadian group Hot Hot Heat.

MTV Tree on the plagiarism issue said the following: “I’m talking to a huge number of composers, it is the people space. When I ask how it comes to the song, 99 percent of them say, “I don’t do it to me by SMS comes.”
Aria vs Iron Maiden
Group “Aria” has repeatedly been accused of musical borrowing.
“Aria” – the Devil’s heat
You can, however, refer to the fact that they worked within the genre in which it is difficult to stand out stylistically, but in some cases they do not justify even this.
Iron Maiden – From Here To Eternity
Igor Talkov vs Madeline Kahn
The song “Summer rain” Igor talc apparently wrote, inspired by the hit Swedish singer Madeline Kahn. This is especially noticeable on the chorus.
“Corrosion of metal” vs Angel Dusk
The problem of the genre? A cover version? A rip-off?
“Corrosion of metal” – “Black terror”
Hard to say, but the song “Black terror” group Sergei “Spider” Trinity “Corrosion” seems to be a copy of the song I’ll Come Back German heavy metal band Angel of the Dusk.
Angel Dusk – I’ll Come Back
“Spleen” vs Green Day
Group “spleen” like to compare with the English team Radiohead.
“Spleen” – “the Anglo-Russian dictionary”
However, Alexander Vassiliev was inspired not only by the compositions Thom Yorke, but more energetic songs by the American punk rock band Green Day. At least the song “the Anglo-Russian dictionary” seems very similar to When I Come Around.
Green Day – When I Come Around
Quest Pistols vs Shocking Blue
Ukrainian project Quest Pistols broke into the Russian show business in 2007 with the song “I’m tired”.
Quest Pistols – “I’m tired”

Shocking Blue – Long and Lonesome Road
John legend vs Coldplay
Words are needed, just listen. Grigory Leps was a big fan of English band Coldplay.
Oleg Gazmanov vs Bad Boys Blue
The chief captain of our singers Oleg Gazmanov, it seems, is also inspired by the works of Western colleagues.
