Can somebody please explain this to me? Tell me I'm hearing this wrong.

 

Giant - Save Me vs John Schlitt - Save Me

 

John Schlitt -

I couldn't find a Youtube for Giant, but I'm sure you guys have all heard their new album.

is this opening a can of worms ?

 

You tell me. All I know is I was listening to the new Giant album when I suddenly thought, "What the hell? When did I put on John Schlitt?"

Could it be one of thaose songs written by an independent writer and bought/recorded by both artists? Kind of like KISS, Ace Frehley and some female singer all did with the song "Hide Your Heart"

Well, in the liner notes on the new giant, "Save Me" is credited to Dann Huff, David Huff, and Terry Brock. Sure enough, Dann & David played on the Schlitt CD containing "Save Me", so I'd say it's theirs to do with what they please most likely. bannana_guitar.gif

Alright, thanks. That's all I wanted to know. Didn't want to stir up some shit. I figured there would be a reasonable explaination, and there it is. Great songs - both of them.

Hehe your all wrong...I had to cheat and look it up to refresh my memory but it was Bonnie Tyler I was thinking of...among many others apparently. :bananamac:

I'd forgotten that Holly Knight co-wrote that. I never knew Bonnie Tyler recorded it as well. I knew Molly Hatchet did, and I should know that nobody here would mistake that name for a woman.

Haven't heard either song but, no, unfortunately this isn't the case. It all comes down to who owns the publishing. If the publisher of the "original song" (in this case, the John Schlitt track, right?) feels that there is a copyright infringement case they can go after the Huff's, etc - even though they were involved with both songs.

 

A while back John Fogerty wound up "suing himself" when one publisher decided that a new song of his at the time was too similar to an older song he had written and recorded with CCR. It's a fun game I tell ya!

    • Nice. I have absolutely no idea.  Iron Maiden / The Lord's Prayer reference... Bruce?

    • STAR is out now on bandcamp and for 24hrs only, it's free, or "name your price"! so if you want it go grab it.  As for the song it's more LeBrock Awesomeness with a killer solo from McRocklin. lebrock.bandcamp.com/track/star-feat-mcrocklin
    • From Frontiers: Frontiers Music is thrilled to announce the signing of Powell-Payne a dynamic four-piece band hailing from West Wales, United Kingdom! Formed by founding members Mark ""Penfold"" Powell (ex-drummer of Psycho Kiss) and Adam Payne (former vocalist of Airrace) in 2022, Powell-Payne's journey began with a single goal - to create a heartfelt song dedicated to their lost loved ones. Joined by their dear friends Adam Davies on guitar and Steve Leyshon on keyboards, Powell-Payne quickly realised the magic of their collaboration and decided to embark on a full album project together. Expanding their lineup to include the exceptional talents of Aydan Watkins on guitar and Alex Anderson on bass guitar, Powell-Payne is ready to rock the world with their electrifying sound!

    • These guys can be found with the silver bells and cockleshells.
    • From the KC FB page: Kingdom Come is excited to announce a 'Return to the Kingdom'   Kingdom Come will be kicking off 2024 with a new lineup, management, a new album, and a brand-new tour, starting March 15th at The Lamp Theatre in Irwin, PA. And the following night, March 16th, we will be in Lakewood, OH, at Mercury Music Lounge.  Two new band members will be joining our lineup. Veteran touring drummer Matt Muckle (Paul Gilbert, Lynch Mob) will be taking over drums for our dear recently-departed brother, James Kottak. And we're introducing the incredible Ezekiel Kaplan as our new vocalist.  We hope to see you all in March, and out on the road this year, as we 'Return to the Kingdom' to continue the legacy of Kingdom Come!  👑 https://kingdomcomerockband.com  
    • I think it's the other way around.  Still it's a very hooky album. I often thought a song doesn't necessarily have to end at 3:00 minutes. The endings are too abrupt sometimes.
