Two songs. The same record label. Almost the exact same keyboard line. Coincidence? I don’t know.
I’ll just link to this interview where Farley says that everyone ripped everyone else off in the Chicago scene.
Is this one of the instances Farley is referring to? And is he the ripper or the rippee in this situation?
I don’t know. I don’t really care either. They are both cool songs (although I prefer the Farley version.)
