They are both in the same exact key, same chord progression, similar overall style/feel. They have different melodies though and thats probably what counts the most I think.

Quite similar but there are enough differences.

Erm, thats the exact same song as far as I can hear?

Suprised that support staff didn’t agree with you…

Hmmm….I listened through both tracks all the way through – and while they are the same chord progression, it’s very possible for two people to come up with the same 4 chords :)

I have done this many times myself unfortunately…where I write a song, then hear a song by someone else that sounds so similar I have to scrap mine because I don’t want to look like I was copying them :)

Plagiarism is a real thing however, but it’s really difficult to police. This particular song in my opinion, while similar, is different enough to pass as it’s own creation and that is probably why AJ allowed it.

I would become a little more suspicious if they were from the same country perhaps.

PS – I don’t particularly like .RU domains because that is where I always find my songs if you get my drift!
