I don't know if I'd call this plagiarism, but Janet's "Runaway" and Louise's "Arms Around The World" sound nearly identical. Both songs were recorded in Spring 1995 and both have the exact same structure, vibe, theme, etc. Definitely suspicious. Maybe just a coincidence?

Everyone is immediately saying Born This Way and even after all these years I just can't seem to hear the similarities:skull:

So baby pull me Closer

In the back seat of your Rover

That I know you can't afford
Bite that tattoo on your shoulder
Pull the sheets right off the corner
Of the mattress that you stole-
FROM YOUR ROOMMATE BACK IN BOULDER

WE AIN'T EVER GETTING OLDER

She hasn't lost any music plagiarism case, all the cases are thrown out because they are a reach.

nnnn at the usual suspects running in here to say Born This Way when there are tons and tons of far more similar sounding songs (including Express Yourself with its predecessor, Respect Yourself), those two just have the same chord progression :rip: 

 

 

Anyway, this is the most blatant example:
