I was watching that Carpenters documentary on BBC4 last week, and partway through realised one of their tunes had been completely lifted for "Fox In The Snow". Another one  for the Murdoch swipe file, along with Out In The Country and Summer Wine.

Seems to be a thing among these fey Glaswegians - my wife was listening to French Navy by Camera Obscura the other day, and it's just Embarrassment by Madness, isn't it?

There's a wee similarity, but it's not a wholesale pinch.  Great song regardless.

Just looked at the current availability of the rooms and it doesn't look like many have sold. Doesn't bode well for something so expensive and a little over 6 months away. It's going to get cancelled, isn't it?

Sounds a tiny bit like Yesterday Once More in the verse to me.

Ta. Will have a listen tonight.

Nothing to do with B&S but my favourite "homage" is this. Reckon Sumner and co had heard it?

There's only so many notes, chords and melodies in modern western music. I see your efforts, but that's just not any kind of creative theft - the two songs happen to share the same musical space.

To quote Aaron Sorkin / Jed Bartlet: "what's next?"

Think that was "Electronic Renaissance" off Tigermilk, rippng off "Procession". LCD Soundsystem later nicked the bits they forgot:

My favourite (off-topic, non B&S related) Carpenters rip-off was Felt's theft of that ace guitar solo in Goodbye to Love.
