Did Christina Aguilera Lift Sugababes Song?

The New York Post reports that when Christina Aguilera’s album ‘Stripped’ included a track called ‘Make Over’, many noticed the beat and pace was remarkably similar to the 2001 Sugababes tune called ‘Overload’. Aguilera and Linda Perry were listed as the song’s writers when ‘Stripped’ first came out, but now ASCAP also lists Sugababes writers Jonathan Lipsey, Felix Howard, Cameron Mcvey and Paul Simm as ‘Make Over’ writers. Also, Aguilera’s ‘Stripped in London’ DVD does not include ‘Make Over’.

Sugababes’ New Sound Gives Them Chills

October 6, 2004 – The Sugababes tell Radio 1 that fans should be prepared for a new sound on their upcoming album. “It’s sounding very different to what we did before, but it’s exciting,” the trio said. “Yeah, really amazing. It’s like the first time you hear it, it’s like ‘Woah…’ Everyone’s walking in and listening to it and just like, ‘Oh my gosh’. It’s the first time I think, we’ve all kind of felt that excited about our music. We’ve loved what we did in the past, but it’s (the new album) like, when we hear it, it’s like, ‘Oh my gosh’, it gives you chills.”

    That was the first thought that came to my mind when I heard that song. I just can’t get why no one realized it and said something about it before. It’s a good song though.

    You know something is wrong, If Christina is listed as a song writer. That woman can’t form a complete thought, you know she can’t write a song. She’s nothing but a filthy lice ridden whore.

    Pheobe (or whatever) just shut up already. YOU’VE MADE FOUR DIFFERENT COMMENTS AND IT’S NOT EVEN TUESDAY YET!!! Pathetic. You need to come out of the closet and admit that Sh!t-sh** is what keeps you alive. It’s obvious that you are failing miserably at being neutral *rolls eyes*.

    Um, the only thing ‘similar’ is the rhythm. Neither the Sugababes, nor ANYONE, OWNS that. That’s like saying you own a time signature. The lyrics and melody and the song itself sound NOTHING alike. Not even the themes of the songs.
    I can think of MANY pieces from the classical or Romantic era (that’s 18th and 19th century) that use that rhythm in the bass ..etc. Are the Sugababes going to claim those were plagarized too? They did not INVENT the beat.
    I am a composer, and that would be like saying ‘I wrote this song in 4/4 time, so I invented it and no one else is allowed to use it, and if they do, then they are plagarizing the beat from me.’ It’s ridiculous. You can’t plagarize a beat.
