    So I'm listening to the radio on the way home, flipping through the stations. Ended up on some pop station, and heard two songs in a row: Beyonce's 'Halo' and Kelly Clarkson's 'Already Gone'. A few seconds into the second song I noticed that they sounded exactly the same. They were in the same key, had the same chord progression, and almost the same tempo. Got home and looked them up:

    Halo
    Beyoncé_Knowles
    Co-Written and produced by Ryan Tedder

    Already Gone
    Kelly Clarkson
    Co-written and produced by Ryan Tedder

    :ph34r:

    From Wikipedia:
    So I put the two songs together to show how close they both are. There are a few examples of people trying to do this on Youtube, but frankly their attempts all suck. I've overlaid the two songs and synced the tempos pretty much perfectly... it's attached here.

    Take a listen and tell me these aren't the exact same damn songs:

    There's nothing wrong with modern MUSIC. you just didn't happen to be on a music channel--- you were on the corporate "brand" channel.

    This is true. ^_^ I'm just amazed that they'd play these two songs right after each other, and that this hack can get away with releasing the same song twice, at the same time, under two different artists. He didn't even change the key.

    It's actually a better song when they're both stuck together. :D

    It isnt all that surprising really. You release one song that goes Platinum right, why not release another with the same key elements? I agree, the corporate branded shit is just that, shit.

    Hrm, that explains why that song sounded familiar since the first time I heard it.
