They burst onto music scene like a flash of lightening then took the US by storm causing great speculation as to the meaning of the song. Was it about the French Revolution, a Masonic Messiah, or perhaps, GW Bush.
While the world was speculating about the meaning of the song, enter stage left guitarist Joe Satriani who says, "Hey that's my song." He says the melody is stolen from a guitar lick in an instrumental he wrote called "If I Could Fly." Hey, the melodies sound the same and both titles start with the word "if." Hmm, I wonder. . .
In the link below we have the instrumental written by Joe Satriani superimposed on Coldplay's tune. What do you think?
1. What is "I Used to Rule the World" about?
2. Did they steal the melody from Satriani?
If you had to decide the case against Coldplay how would you decide?
