Song Lawsuits -> Latest Entries

"Thinking Out Loud" by Ed Sheeran
Ed Townsend's estate sued Sheeran for plagiarising elements off Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get It On". The melodies are indeed eerily similar (and it didn't help that Sheeran would occasionally mash up the two songs in his concerts either), but the courts initially dismissed it in 2016. Structured Asset Sales however brought out another lawsuit worth $100 million.

Funniest Song Lyrics -> Latest Entries

"Pop Life" by Prince
The Funny Lyrics:
What you puttin' in your nose, is that where all your money goes?
Why They're Funny:
I've never been a Prince fan (can't stand him) but this line in this song has always made me laugh. The fact that the sound of his voice is electronically altered just makes it even funnier. Cocaine reference obviously. But seriously don't do drugs people!
