1. Listen to Pony Club's song "Single" on the NME Moz CD

2. The line "I'm single 'cos....."

is exactly the same melody as

"Where taxi drivers never stop talking.." from CBTC

I don't have a big nose, but I knows

Yes and if you listen to "let me Kiss You" and the "Dr Who" theme tune, you'll see Moz and Alain stole the idea of using a "c" and "e" in a pop song from that theme. Bloody thieves.

It works the other way too

Spiritualized nicked the end of I Know It's Gonna Happen Someday and used it as the riff to Come Together. It's particularly obvious when you listen to the Beethoven... live version.

Er, didn't 'I know it's gonna happen someday' steal the riff from 'Rock N Roll Suicide?
