How close is the bassline for Pink Cadillac and Peter Gunn?
I've had this debate with my guitar players who think it is like Peter Gunn. I rhythm is the same, but the notes are different.
Technically, it's not the bassline. It's the guitar in Peter Gunn. The real bassline in Peter Gunn is actually kind of uninteresting in my opinion; the guitar is everything.
I listened to a few versions of Pink Cadillac. I find most to be different. The Aretha Franklin version has similar sections but is overall different. The Natalie Cole version isn't even close. However, I think the Bruce Springsteen version is extremely similar. As you probably know, Bruce Springsteen wrote Pink Cadillac.
Call up Henry Mancini. I think we have a lawsuit.
Watch and listen to this video:
Another good link comparing the two:
Coincidence, Rip Off or Homage?
Thing I like about Springteen, he has no problem with "getting close" to his likes and influences in his writing.
No one could ever say he's not capable of writing great original material.
