They have rhythmic keys and drums. So does Back to Black
. The similarities end there.
The two examples I posted sound nothing like back to black and have more in common than just keys and drums.
When you listen intently and break apart the two examples I posted, there are really striking similarities, otherwise, I wouldn't be wasting my time or anyone else's.
When I say striking similarities I mean even in the structure and different parts enough to pique the curiosity to why they are structured overall so similarly and ultimately have very similar progressions in notes especially when they are played.
While I understand this is mostly simple music and not some classical or prog rock stuff, and therefore can be feasibly believed that there is a possibility other people are coming up with a similar thing on their own free from inspiration from mine or anyone else's song, its still important I seek more opinions, yours included, which I appreciate.
I also want to iterate that I'm really just doing my due diligence, I own sound recordings where others are represented and if I do not do more investigating then I am not handling my duties and obligations therein, which I prefer to ensure I do. I am also not searching or desperate for something, I'm not hoping on a big break or looking for a big score or some fame thing, I simply walked into a coffee shop one day and heard Chasing Shadows playing, I walked in when there were no vocals on and immediately went, woah that's a song I own, and then after a few seconds went, oh wait its not a song I own but man does that sound similar. Similar enough for me, a very busy man, to want to investigate and source further opinions on the matter. I wouldn't think that with back to black.
