Now it looks like Taylor Swift is the latest celeb to be called out for taking a bit too much inspo from a classic song.Sean Hall and Nathan Butler, the writers of 3LW's classic 2000 hit "Playas Gon' Play," have filed a lawsuit against Taylor Swift claiming that the lyrics to her 2014 smash single "Shake It Off" are theirs.In June 2009, 28 years after the release of the recording, Larrikin Music sued Men At Work for copyright infringement, alleging that part of the flute riff of "Down Under" was copied from "Kookaburra".The counsel for the band's record label and publishing company (Sony BMG Music Entertainment and EMI Songs Australia) claimed that, based on the agreement under which the song was written, the copyright was actually held by the Girl Guides Association.It is ultimately about celebrating the country, but not in a nationalistic way and not in a flag-waving sense.
It's really about the plundering of the country by greedy people.
In May 2001, Australasian Performing Right Association (APRA) celebrated its 75th anniversary by naming the Best Australian Songs between 19, as decided by a 100 strong industry panel, "Down Under" was ranked as the fourth song on the list.
In 2007, on the ABC-TV quiz show Spicks and Specks the question was posed "What children's song is contained in the song Down Under?
The song also contains the refrain, where beer does flow and men chunder.
To "chunder" means to vomit."The chorus is really about the selling of Australia in many ways, the overdevelopment of the country.
Sections of the flute part of the recording of the song were found to be based on "Kookaburra", written in 1932 by Marion Sinclair.
