Default Need help identifying a melody

Hi everyone,

I need your help on settling a score made between me and the singer in a band that I know.

The score is regarding a song you can find on their Facebook profile (Yes, click it, it's a link) and the song called "In Fade"

Now, if you listen to the verse (the first melody sung by the singer in the song) and the melody that the singer sings, I am positive that I have heard it before. However, I simply cannot remember where or which song it is.

Now I need your help in telling me one or the other; Is the melody to be found somewhere else or am I simply hearing a melody that is instantly memorable? As they are about to enter the studio, I would want to clarify this before they record it in prime quality (as the recordings are from a EP they recorded like 3 years ago).

I hope you can help me with this little matter, as it's driving me nuts to be honest

I can't place the melody for the verse, but there's 12 notes and only so many rhythms that you hear in pop music (even heavy pop music). To be honest this is generic enough that I'm not surprised that you hear other songs in it, the chorus's vocal melody sounds like a sped up version of the chorus from Aerials by System of a Down.

I wouldn't lose any sleep over it man.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

My thoughts are it would be a damn shame, if they went to the studio with a song that could be a rip-off without their knowledge.

But maybe you're right. It still bothers me though xD

Oh I get that man. I try to push myself very hard out of what you would 'normally' hear while playing/writing in one of my bands, but even then you get used to the sound after a while and start seeing past the abrasive chords and it's all the same stuff.

Sometimes it happens. A few years ago there was a big hoopla about cold play ripping off a Joe satriani song. They maintained that it was a complete coincidence, despite the fact the all the chords were in the same key and changed at the same times.

For some reason I thought that was a Steve Vai song...? To be honest I don't know why either of those dudes, who are ridiculously accomplished musicians in their own rights, even care. Do you really think Coldplay was interested in either artist at all? Coincidences like that happen I'd say.
