    Hardly an obscure song, but the lead into the chorus is the piano concerto number 2 I think.

    Eric Carmen plagiarised himself as well as Rachmaninov in that song. The melody of the chorus was from his own song "Let's Pretend"
    Bloody good song though.

    Yes, there's a touch of Rachmaninov's 2nd there....but not much.




    Loads and loads of 'modern' songs have nicked bits of tune from the classics...

    Mem and I did a thread on it years ago....probably lost in the mists of time now...or may have been in the old XMB forems - from which lots disappeared when we changed over.

    Yes, a wealth of information. I'm not surprised normal people and musos don't always hit it off.

    Did you also spot the bit that was "borrowed" by the theme tune from "You Only Live Twice" which was further copied in Robbie Williams' "Millenium"?

    Speaking of Rachmaninov, did Bill Murray actually play this?
