J Giles Band Smurf Connection

Listening to the radio this morning, the DJ on there made a comment about how the whistle at the end of the J Giles Band song "Centerfold" sounds somewhat similar to the Smurfs whistle. And I have to admit, it is quite similar. Maybe, just maybe, after a late night of recording, the band sat down, and the Smurfs were on, and someone thought, "Hey! Let's use this, and see if anyone notices...."

Have you heard the similarity between
Dire Straights':
"I want my, I want my, I want my MTV."

and Sting's:
"Don't stand, Don't stand, Don't stand so close to me."

I had heard a long time ago that Sting had actually sang the back up for that Dire Straights song. There's some actual relation between the songs (if I remember correctly).

Hadn't heard that... I'll remember to listen more closely next time.

Yes, Sting was indeed featured in I Want My MTV.

Interesting... It's amazing what you learn from a blog post. :)
