    I completely understand. My two-year-old repeats EVERYTHING so we really have to be careful about television and radio. Luckily, I was very much born in the wrong decade and would rather listen to Elvis, Frank Sinatra, Dino, The Monkees, The Beach Boys, or Ricky Nelson. As a baby, The Beatles were able to calm my fussy daughter down like none other. I do miss that type of music.

    :thumbsup2 I remember when Pras came out with Ghetto Superstar. It was all the rage and I just kept thinking, "Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton did this song over 10 years ago and it was called Islands in the Stream." Everyone told me I was wrong and crazy and dumb for thinking someone as unique and original as Pras would ever sample such crappy music as Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton. Imagine their shock when it came out that Kenny and Dolly sang it, but it was written by The BeeGees.

    True about Flo Rida. I really enjoy a number of his songs.

    'Cause Lord knows if there's anything cooler than Kenny and Dolly it's the BeeGees. :rotfl2:

    Actually longer than that.

    I am old enough to remember when the copyright holder for the Chiffons "He's So Fine" sued George Harrison over "My Sweet Lord" and prevailed in court.

    Then again the 80's band Men at Work lost a lawsuit about their song "Down Under" over a song written and published in the 1930's.

    Wow I never put the 2 songs together before but now that you mention it they definitely sound similar.

    I love Bruno Mars, but that "Locked Out of Heaven" is definitely my least favorite of his songs that I've heard. I hear a note or two in common here and there, but not anything more than that. :confused3

    Did you miss The Lazy Song?

    I like his music, but being blunt with lyrics is not uncommon for him :goodvibes

    Check out Bruno Mars little mermaid on YouTube. I love it! He is incredible. Loved him on SNL!

    I love "Locked out of Heaven" but the lyrics are uh, not ok to sing in the car! My teenage daughter likes him too, but we both agree that's a song we will just bop our heads to. :rotfl:

    Even the classical composers borrowed themes and melodies from each other. It's been done for centuries. Find a good melody, why not use it again in another setting.

    Watched Bruno on Jimmy Kimmel last night. He did Locked out of Heaven with a more reggae tone last night and I have to admit, it did sound like The Police.

    Listen for yourself

    Sorry to drudge up this dead thread, but just wanted to say that Bruno Mars and Sting just sang Locked Out of Heaven on the Grammys and it was AH-MA-ZING! :woohoo:

    Bruno Mars is awesome. :)

    :rotfl2: Well, according to Bruno none of it would be possible if it weren't for Bob Marley, so Sting stole from Bob Marley and then Bruno stole from Sting.

    That was a great performance (as was much of last night's show). Bruno Mars is a talented guy. I think we'll see some surprising material come from his eclecticism. :)

    That explains why I like that song since I'm not really a Mars fan.
