Is Ayumi just a big copycat?
 
This song has the EXACT same music and sound as Tell me why.

No
They're credited in the album liner notes.
You should call it a quasi-cover.

oh God why :( this just ruined the Tell me why now :(

Koda Kumi has done this a few times too. I think the company like, buys some of the rights to the song or something like that? Kuu did that with "Can We Go Back" and "Physical thing". It's really nothing new.

Big copy cat.


I remember there was a post about this, I can't seem to remember where.

TeamAyu2004 17th June 2013 10:52 PM

there was already a post about this.
And yes, everyone got credit where it was due.

Besides, this is pop music... everyone copies everyone.

Sometimes the rights were sell to 2 different comapnys so this drama is "normal"...

Chiharo 17th June 2013 11:50 PM

She covered the song. What's so weird about that?

channy 18th June 2013 12:23 AM

To be more exact, Avex solely bought the rights for the instrumental. The lyrics of the original song are completely different from Ayu's version.

No wonder that's the only song I like from Party queen. It's a cover...

So... All the people disturbed by this terrible information... Why don't you just leave her fandom for good, go plant some carrots or something and stop annoying people over here on the forum?

^^ What the... that was just unnecessarily rude.

drdolce 18th June 2013 04:26 PM

I always knew Tell me why isn't a Japanese song tbh. It has always sounded so European in my ears that it just made sense when it was revealed it was actually a cover. Why is this such a big issue anyway? Bold & Delicious, Ladies Night, In The Corner, Pride, Beautiful Day, rainy day and Memorial address are also covers. ;)

marty 18th June 2013 04:35 PM

I don't really think "cover" is the right word for it... She just paid someone for their composition, like she always did. European or Japanese, it's the same, and it really doesn't matter if someone sang on the same melody before, if I paid it's rightfully mine.
It's like saying Girls Generation stole Run Devil Run from Kesha just because she sang the demo firstXD

So many more than Run Devil Run
Also I Got a Boy, Dancing Queen, Mr. Taxi, Let it Rain etc...

Edit: point was, this is SUPER COMMON in the showbiz. And why shouldn't it be allowed? I mean, if there's a great tune out there that you'd love to write a song to, why not? Better to buy the rights to the instrumental than to make a song that sounds a lot like it. I think it shows respect to buy the song.

This thread is not a waste at all. I never took the time to do the research on this song so thank you jennjenn2010 for posting this :-)

Just ignore his posts. He likes being exceptionally rude towards people who say one bad-thing about Ayu.
