Déjà Vu All Over Again

While listening to various bands promote their singles on the radio recently, I have come to the conclusion that some remind me of several other acts:

The Feeling sound like Supertramp, or even worse, The Buggles;
Editors sound like Joy Division;
The Fratellis sound like Enormous;
Razorlight’s new single Before I Fall To Pieces sounds like they have been listening to American Girl by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers;
Same Jeans by The View sounds like the Proclaimers doing Brim Full Of Asha…

I could go on but I’m just being dumb.

Here are the songs getting the most plays on the stereogram chez Fantastic at the moment:

Secret Heart – Ron Sexsmith
Shelley My Love – Nick Lowe
Les Cactus – Jaques Dutronc
Pretty Little Painkiller – Enormous
(I Heard That) Lonesome Whistle – Hank Williams
Bridge – Orange Juice
After Hours – Nelson Galaxy
He Stopped Loving Her Today – George Jones
Mumbo Jumbo – Squeeze
The Middle – Jimmy Eat World
A Change Is Gonna Come – Sam Cooke
Out Of Town – The Skids
