I would say they clearly agree with you about it being lifted if they chose to share the writing credits with Dagny, b/c you know they wouldn't cut someone else in on the money unless they felt they really had to. So they knew they weren't going to get away with it and just nipped it in the bud by sharing the writing credit.

Now check these out: Toni Basil "Hey Mickey", Taylor Swift "Shake it Off" and KIDZ BOP Kids "Make Some Noise" .... it's hilarious how the 2 latter were rip offs of the former, either directly or indirectly.

Take all the pure covers that have ever been made and how many are universally preferred than the original, very few. It doesn't matter if you have an original piece of music to take from and basically make a new version of, it's hard to make a better version of a song. I think that is an interesting concept for music in general. Couldn't imagine it being done this well much

Doesn’t matter how you slice it. Stealing someone’s songs and making it better is still stealing someone’s song. The big stars should be praised for that. Sorry but I can’t give them credits for making a good rip off 🤦🏾‍♂️

I’ve been doing this in my mind for years & when I hear a so-called new song, my brain triggers ‘plagiarism’ even if I can’t quite detect where that song was stolen from. This happened a lot when Oasis released a song. In the 80’s & 90’s pop artists would steal from country music. It’s refreshing for someone like Rick to dissect the song in protools & show it for what it is. A true talent has their own personality & from that personality an original sounding song emerges. This will not happen with a fake who needs 9 writers to write crap.

Really nice video but I have a question. In your other video concerning Ed Sheeren's song 'Thinking Out Loud' and Marvin Gaye's 'Let's Get it On' you were not so convinced that Ed Sheeren copied Marvin Gaye. What is the difference in this case where it is an outright copy and the latter where it is not?

So... the secret to writing great music is to bring in 8 other writers? Do you think that, maybe, if they'd hired another 3 or 4 writers, that would have pushed it over the top to Number One? Hey, it works in film. I was working on a stage-to-film project and all the make-up & costume artists disappeared from the project the 3rd week in, because they were all hired for "The Grinch" movie. And, of course, it one for Make-Up & Costume Design, because half of Hollywood that votes in that category were on the project.

Great melody in the Chorus. About 20 successive B-flat notes. WTF is wrong with the songwriters who do that? I've heard this in more songs. No doubt's I'm just a girl also does this in the beginning of the chorus on the F-sharp note. There may be different chords under it to make it not be completely boring, but I prefer more notes.

I HATE those screeching “every one sounds the same” pop VOX. Something is always missing from their even self-described “bubblegum” tracks. The rhythm is cool for the genre but I could “hear” it sung by a more listenable vocalist, even Gaga has a much richer voice without the screech. As far as 9 people writing the song, it’s probably that they credited the various people who laid down a line or part of a line and thereby dispersed the blame.

The honest million dollar question is would Katy Perry have a hit song if the original song didn't exist? Most of the world would say probably not , because when you have all of the tools to make it whatever you want or the people who write the songs for you have the tools to change it a little and one get millions and the other is not anywhere close .. Now we know why there are no real POP Musicians , this is almost as Bad as Stealing the Joe Satriani song to make a song ... Wow !!!!!!!

I think you give these songs too much credit. Sometimes ideas are so simple, so clichéd, so plebian...that you can no longer claim that plagiarism occurred. It would be like claiming a blues song was plagiarism because after the I and IV, they then went to the V.

It wasn't stolen or lifted, just duplicated. It's the eventual outcome of DIGITAL "artists, writers, producers" pretending they understand theory (what makes music unique). -These people can use only what they've HEARD as a track, then add a professional singer. I'm not surprised at all, this is very, VERY common...

There's a kind of innocence to musicians who write their own songs because those are the kind of songs they like, rather than those who recieve songs to perform from their record label, or who write songs that are mainly meant to sell rather than be loved.

6:30 kind of sounds like Katy Perry singing Taylor Swift too. I don't hate modern music, but I do get the feeling there's a lot of old dudes behind mixing desks doing most of the work, and to steal a quote from Buffy: "Music played by people chosen for their ability to dance". Maybe KP and TS aren't he best examples of that, but a lot of modern pop is more about how the people look and what sad life story they've overcome than their originality or musicality. Damn you Simon Cowell.

What’s sad here is Perry should have just sung the Dagny song, but her way with a few new verses and her unique way of singing the chorus. It would make a lot more sense than trying to say they wrote a whole new song but still had to pay royalties-unless this was an outright steal and they got caught and played the damage control game.

Your notion of a "great song" and my notion are apparently not the same. This is corporate, it's soulless. You seem to be more enamored by studio craftsmanship than anything else. Don't get me wrong, you know your stuff, but I say as a visual artist, your focus seems to heavily favor technique over message (which, IMO, is a big problem in the art world). What's happened to the art of songwriting over the past decade or two, is a real crime.

I wonder if this is the kind of thing that's behind the first song in which I ever (unknowingly) heard Katy Perry. That song was Goodbye For Now by P.O.D., and for YEARS I had no idea that the trollop I soon thereafter heard singing about kissing a girl and liking it was the one singing at the end of the former, possibly because P.O.D. is a Christian or quasi-Christian band. The song's chorus goes "When will we sing A new song A new song"

Maybe instead of saying “this is a well done pop song” you should say this is well plagiarized. Maybe it took only one to copy Dagney’s song, another to realize they will get sued and loose all the revenue, a third to dream up the idea to offer the original writers writing credits and the other 3 to agree on their plan.

Forensics on these recordings and you are 100 % correct, But man that would be harsh if they lifted that and made millions on it as a #1 hit and wrote that message ,...we just want you to know ,..your song ...(such & such) , inspired us greatly in the creation of our song....and didn’t share the rewards or credit. I guess we’d be surprised how many songs have been lifted and shined up into a sharper sounding version. Awesome Video.
