i\'ve heard this song several times now on rp... and i have to say eventually i began to like it. this was probably the sixth time i\'ve heard it and i actually began to enjoy it this time. i do think she sounds very similar to fiona apple though.
I like this song very much. There is one tiny part in the chorus that, for the longest time, reminded me of someone/something. Then it hit me - there was a kiddy song I used to have on vinyl that we brought up with us when we immigrated from Brazil. In fact, its timing & notation is a little like the music from there, especially the Carmen Miranda stuff. :p
Caught my ear and had to comment. I like the tune and have put it on the aquire list.
Please never play this song again. YUCK!!!
What are you guys nitpicking for? This is a pretty cool song. People get too hung up on the messenger these days. It\'s the song not the singer that counts.
beth orton is that you?
I enjoy Rosey that much more for sounding like people I already enjoy. I think it\'s more of a style than an imitation, and I like it.

I will acknowledge that there are performers whose sole intent is to copy-cat their way to stardom. But to accurately make this judgement, either inside info or hindsight is required. To state that someone is a copy-cat, merely on the grounds that initially they may sound exactly like someone else is not fair. Only time will tell. Since you strayed into sampling, I'll stray farther. How is sampling any different (figuratively) than a cover? Both take the work of others, and put it out as their own. To me the great thing in life is that our predecessors inspire us to places we could not have imagined without the ground-work they laid. ALL human progress is a derivative of the past. What sets apart the artists you've listed, is that they are the rare/great ones whose derivatives go much farther from the norm, than anyone has before. Just because someone can't be original enough to be indistinguishable from someone else, doesn't mean they aren't trying. Besides, Fionna Apple is hardly revolutionary herself.

I don't see what the point is in this exercise. Everyone sounds like someone that came before them. Very seldom does "true originality" emerge. Evolution is a derivative work. Note: None of the above words are mine, they have all been in existence much longer than I. I just arrange them into representations of my thoughts, which aren't truly mine either, for they derive from the thoughts of others. What is mine and mine only then? My voice. Even though it speaks through the words and thoughts of others, the passion behind uttering them is mine. I can only hope that my voice isn't so recognizable that its message can be dismissed as "not unique enough". If you are going to complain about sound alike music, complain about the suits who control/design it, not the artist.
Fiona Apple needs to file a restraining order. Rosey is muscially stalking her. Single White Fiona.
thought this was fiona apple at first.....
It was bugging me, who was this then I realised it was Natalie Merchant guesting with Green Day... best apart :eek:
Thanks to whomever (and obviously B&R) for the new tunes. :)
