Coldplay is being sued by rocker Joe Satriani for supposedly copying "substantial original portions" of his 2004 song "If I Could Fly."
Check out the video.
Think what you will, but I'll stand behind Coldplay on this on. I mean come on, all their songs are made of super simple melodies and progressions. It's bound to happen that someone, somewhere has already hit on that same-ish tune for many of their songs.
(Maybe I'm biased, since I'm mostly excited that the new Coldplay album has a lot of strings in it....)
