Some striking similarities . . .

Post by Erdy1 » Tue Mar 11, 2003 6:47 pm

Is it just me, or do other people hear these too:

In "Tales of the Great Wars" - The keyboard section near the beginning that sounds very much like something from Rush's Subdivisions.

In "One King" (hope I got the right track) - the keyboard/bass section that sounds like a quote from Yes' Tales from Topographic Oceans - "The Remembering"

"Heroes and Dragons" - melody is very similar to David Gilmour's song "Out of the Blue" on About Face.

***PLEASE NOTE: This is just for fun, and is not meant to be derogatory in any way to Glass Hammer (one of my favorite bands) or Lex Rex (by far their best album ever, at least so far). Although I'm guessing they probably did the Yes section (and possibly the Rush one too) on purpose just for kicks!

Here's an obscure similarity

4:00 into Morannon Gate

6:39 into Danza Vital (off Sarabandes by Minimum Vital)

I have to agree about one king. Even the vocals sound like yes, beyond just that section! But its a great song, so I'm not complaining. :D

When We Were Young

Post by Venividi » Sun May 10, 2009 11:29 pm

OK,
This one is way out there, but here goes...

Rumpska sings with his school's Chamber Singers. This past week they did a couple of concerts in which they sang the song "The Rhythm of Life" which, apparently, is from the musical "Sweet Charity". As I was listening, I heard some vaguely familiar chord progressions and harmonies. I finally figured out that there are spots where it sounds eerily like the end of "When We Were Young". I can't figure out how they could have copied Glass Hammer, because it was written years before "When We Were Young" :wink:

Check it out for yourself - at about 43 seconds into the following link:

*jaw drop*

What.... the... flip...???!?

Was that what it was like to live "Back in the Day"? Back "When [Steve and Fred] Were Young"?

I am SO glad I got born in the 80s. *shudder*

I just have one thing to say, at least the yellow guy here has:

And his mouth is shut.

I get such a kick out of this - there's a really awesome 'reverse evolution' commercial for Guinness that uses the music from this too
