I was driving home from my girlfriend’s place a few nights ago when the song “Six Months in a Leaky Boat” by Split Enz came on the radio. Listening to it, I couldn’t help but notice its similarity to Cut Copy‘s “Feel the Love.” I got home, did a little research, and all the pieces began to fall in place. Try to follow me here: Split Enz are from New Zealand, which is very close to Cut Copy’s homeland (i.e. Australia). This means Cut Copy probably knew Split Enz’s music when they began producing their own. Also, whereas Cut Copy try to have that whole ’80s vibe, Split Enz are actually from the motherfucking ’80s. Do you see where I’m going with this? Cut Copy jacked Split Enz! It was a devious plan, Cut Copy. I’m sure you thought no one would catch on because, well, who really gives a fuck about New Zealand? But now you’ve been ousted. In the end, I suppose it doesn’t actually matter because Split Enz still comes out on top. Try as they might to “copy” (haha, get it?) Split Enz’s sound, Cut Copy still haven’t managed to produce a mildly racists music video that serves as a metaphor excusing homosexual experimentation in the prolonged absence of women.
