Thread: dear and the headlights (or songs that sound like other songs)

  1. #1

    Default dear and the headlights (or songs that sound like other songs)

    ...just like their name is merely a phrase taken and slightly altered, so is their music.

    Dear and the headlights - "Sweet talk"



    i'm being rough on the guys...its not exactly the same but I immediately thought of this song when i heard the above one...sorry the quality is crappy i couldnt find any more videos for it

    Ethan Durelle - "Benioff"





    while we're at it...we should post in here..."songs that sound like other songs"

    ...wait. so you're saying a small band from phoenix is ripping off a small band from texas?

    dear and the headlights are one of the few good bands in AZ right now, if you're going to diss them come up with something better than comparing those two vids my friend.

    also the nickelback song is my personal favorite ripoff

    I'm excited for their set at Coachella. They're great in a small intimate venue so I'm interested to see how they do at such a big one.

    I put a nice "dont bother" next to their name on my coachella homework page, the vids reinforce that. thanks!

    So much hate. I'll admit I might be a little biased but they actually have a solid live set....and it's nothing like that godawful attempt at a music video.
    this one is better, still doesn't do them justice but you get an idea at least

    this seems to pop up on a lot of those lists ... cr****

    Cat Stevens – Father and Son
    The Flaming Lips – Fight Test
    Now I know that this is old news and that the Lips have begged for forgiveness in a way that only legitimate artists could (with royalties) but it is still crazy listening to this even if its not your first time.

    I'm a fan of these guys, but will most likely skip their Coachella set for two reasons...

    1. I'm seeing them next week in Las Vegas

    2. They are on Friday. Friday is insane.

    Saw Dear and the Headlights last night (thanks again, Bobby!). They rocked it well! Very high energy....and it was a Tuesday night.

    Talked to Ian Metzger for a few minutes....really nice guy. He said he and the band are REALLY looking forward to playing Coachella.

    They are quite good live. And I'm guessing they'll be the opening band, too, so that's always a reason to catch the set.

Robert Plant would probably be on there somewhere too.

    When Tom Petty starts singing you'll see what I'm talking about. I heard the Tom Petty song on the radio in a cafe and immediately thought it sounded like Vampire Weekend (well, other way around).

I wonder if that was the Flaming Lips' problem when they ripped off Cat Stevens.
