This is what I was wondering about when I asked about a sampled chorus melody. I know how much it sucks when you work on a song and suddenly some jerk comes along and says: "Oh, wow, that sounds exactly like {insert popular song here}!" and I didn't want to pull that on you.

Now that it has been brought up, though... It might behoove you to change up that melody a little bit to avoid this in the future. And please don't take this as any sort of slight or insult, because it happens to every songwriter. I once inadvertently rewrote the theme from "Hook." :-P

If you don't want constructive critism, he wouldn't have posted. Better to be upfront and honest if someone wants to improve their craft. Ahren's an adult he wants real feedback.

true, but i do appreciate his effort to be discreet none the less. I will say that I have a very thick skin and can take any constructive criticism. Just stay away from the fat jokes and we'll be all good.
