Did Taylor Swift copy Lily Allen?

Recommended Posts

So i've just listened to Taylor new song "You Need To Calm Down", which admittedly i love already. However i can't help but notice how similar it sounds to Air Balloon by Lily Allen. The instrumental on both songs are near identical (to my ear), and the chorus on both songs having that progressive high note makes me think it's more than a coincidence. The writing style also reminds me of Lily (prior to her last album).

 

Now i wouldn't go as far to say Taylor actually just copied the song (despite the click bait thread title), but there's certainly a strong resemblance between the two songs. 

 

 

Thoughts?

No I’m trying here and I really can’t hear any resemblance at all.

Taking shots at Taylor like it's patrón . Damn, it's almost 7 AM here. And I'm just like "Hey, are you OK?" You need to calm down, it is not a match.

Sksjsks I regret making this thread already sia4. I'm not saying the songsare the same, but to me there's a string resemblance. tay2

I can hear it a bit in the instrumental but this is reaching (and this is coming from a Lily stan).

 

It's not like Air Balloon is super original to begin with though rip4

Let's talk about the song itself though which is utter garbage. Yet another song portraying her huge victim complex. Lyrics and melody are clichee Taylor and the production isn't particularly radio-friendly but also nothing new from her.

This doesn't sound like a hit and I'm cackling because it seems that she is really over this time. ny4

Taylor's new single will flop into oblivion

It's so bland and not like anything that's on the radio rn in a bad way This isn't 2014 anymore. Bubbglegum generic trash won't cut it

I hear the resemblance but it’s different enough that it didn’t rip it off. They are more like cousins instead of sisters.
