21 On the Floor - Jennifer Lopez On the Floor - Jennifer Lopez V 1 Comment
22 Come Together - The Beatles Come Together - The Beatles

Rip-off of "You Can't Catch Me? " Don't know what you think you're hearing, but it sure ain't there. You could as easily say Chuck Berry ripped-off Bo Diddley''s hambone style, but even that's arguable.

"You Can't Catch Me, just played it slower" Maria Quiet, Deep Purple Just Played it faster

@Commenter It seems you are a Beatles fan, but I'm sorry, even John Lennon admit he took this song from the You Can't Catch Me, just played it slower... - somekindofaguy

Alright, I saw someone really likes to dislike the truth... do you know that this song is not even similar to Huey Lewis's song? REALLY? Man, you can sing very well the Ghostbusters for the instrumental of I Want a New Drug... - somekindofaguy

I loved the riff. But then I realized its just a heavy version of Picture Book by Kinks. I wish it wasn't ripped off - zxm

30 Child in Time - Deep Purple Child in Time - Deep Purple

This one's a tough call. While the riffs and progressions are essentially identical, both were recorded in 1969, although "Child In Time" wasn't released until 1970. Haven't researched any backstory, so can't argue pro or con.

Not clear whether this was "ripped off" or shared by agreement. - BobG

It's a Beautiful Day-Bombay Calling

"This one's a tough call" Rip-Off cases are tough calls
