DID ONE DIRECTION PLAGIARIZE DEF LEPPARD’S “POUR SOME SUGAR ON ME?”

Posted by Dana Category: LATEST NEWS

defleppardgroupblue400 There is some controversy brewing as Def Leppard are allegedly looking into legal action against Pop group One Direction due to one of their songs, Midnight Memories, sounding very similar Def Leppard’s, Pour Some Sugar On Me.

“Music lawyers will routinely scour hits like this one to see if there is any evidence that a band has either copied or cleverly mimicked a Def Leppard song,” a source tells The Mirror. “These cases can often take weeks to sort out because we are not talking about peanuts here – the 1D album is selling millions and if the title track goes out as a single it will generate even more money.”

Listen to both songs below and pay special attention to chorus.

  1. Yes, they ripped off Sugar but they might get away with it. The chord progression is identical in key, tempo and changes. The melody on top is different enough though and that’s what most people care about. Reminds me of Joe Satriani -vs- Coldplay where they settled out of court.
