The melody in his teaser sounds like it’s STRAIGHT from Tears For Fears’ “Everybody Wants To Rule The World”
Now I don’t wanna make any drastic assumptions but we KNOW how Korea be with their sampling sometimes, meaning it’s not always legitimate/there be some controversy. I’d like to think that because it’s Taeyang and YG that they actually got permission for the melody, but at the same time it’s just the 1st couple of seconds that sound the same (just in a different pitch and speed), and the rest of the the song could be totally different from Tears For Fears‘. Tears For Fears is an English band formed in the early 80s, and their song Everybody Wants To Rule The World was a huge hit for them. It’s this song that has the same melody (at the beginning) that Taeyang’s teaser has (at the end).
Like I said I’m not jumping to conclusions because A. it could be coincidence, B. it could be a legitimate sampling and C. the rest of Taeyang’s song could be a stark contrast to Tears For Fears’. It’s just crazy how similar they are. Anyway I’m hyped for the album and as a BIGBANG supporter I really, honestly hope this was done correctly.
