"We are Hungry"

Isn't that the song that a group of high school athletes parodied about having too short a lunch hour? Or too little calories for lunch?
Something about "We are Hungry"

try looking it up on YouTube... I think it was on the National News or 60 Minutes...

the question is why does the chorus of the song we are young by Fun sound so familiar.

Does it sound like another song from the 70s,80s, does it sound like something from an old movie....or has it been used somewhere else...

The chorus could very well be a direct rip-off of other tunes we know. Remember how Ice Ice Baby, copied a segment of the song Under Pressure, almost to the note.

Here is Vanilla Ice in an interview saying how his song is different.

A Whiter Shade of Pale, by Procul Harum, is based on a classical song by Bach, known as Sleepers Awake. I was at a movie a while ago where they used the original Bach song as part of the soundtrack. Many people in the audience got restless and started scratching their heads as they tried to figure out, "Why does this song sound so familar?"

I was watching 666 Park Avenue, last night. They played a segment of music that was familar. Then I remembered it was the end sound track to The King's Speech, and is probably really also a famous piece of classical music.

Maybe that's it...I did just watch that video a week or two ago...before I'd ever heard We Are Young (I just heard that song for the first time last Fri night).

Yep...that would explain the kids that I had in my head singing it. HA!

So I am really crazy! I just heard/watched this & couldn't remember that it was the same.
