Sarah, Say it Ain’t So

by Purple Wyrm on February 21, 2012

Currently there’s a thread up on a board I frequent where people are sharing music via the wonder of YouTube. While perusing said thread I came across this piece by Nick Drake (who’s Nick Drake? Shame on you!)

While listening to it I couldn’t help thinking it sounded familiar. Then I realised why…

Now, maybe it’s just my tin ear. And maybe it’s difficult to construct a melancholy song around a descending scale without sounding like every other melancholy song constructed around a descending scale. And maybe it’s a tribute from Sarah Blasko to Nick Drake. But it really does seem a bit too close to me.

Say it ain’t so Sarah!
