telling minor stories to avoid a major one

As it turns out, Coldplay may have stolen that melody(?) by Barbecue Bros

So we all know that Coldplay really does play that song (aka “Viva La Vida”) that way. However, the song itself bears a striking similarity to the melody in a year-old song by a band called Creaky Boards. This is similar to the whole Coldplay/Sum 41 thing from a few years ago, but maybe this time in reverse. Though a Guardian blog entry seems to think it was more of a coincidence since a demo of “Viva La Vida” has apparently been around for over a year.

Video evidence provided by the potential copyees…
