Plagiarism in Danish Eurovision entry?
The Danish entry to the Eurovision 2011 song contest was found Saturday. A somewhat unknown famous band ‘A friend in London‘ went with the title and will now represent Denmark in DÃ¼sseldorf, Germany, on the 10th-14th of May.
The song ‘A New Tomorrow‘ is obviously a winner and has great appeal to a broader audience. The band who has already made a name for itself in Canada, however, face charges of plagiarism.
Danish daily Jyllands-Posten Sunday brings quotes from voters, saying the chorus sounds like Andreas Johnson’s (known from the everlasting ‘Glorious‘ – the best 007-theme that never was) Eurovision song of 2006 ‘Sing for me‘. Others say Future Trance United should claim ownership as the verse from their ‘Face 2 Face‘ resembles that of the Danish winner song.
On YouTube the debate is on too. Here a user claims ‘A new tomorrow‘ sounds a bit too much like My Chemical Romance‘s ‘Black Parade‘.
Listen in and tell me what you think 🙂
Personally… I think A Friend in London made another friend at Latebar.org.
