Who said Alice sampled Nothing Really Matters? Do you have receipts or did you make that up? You don't seem to understand what it means when you say "sample" or "sampling". They sound alike beca

wtf, they're nothing alike i like both tho but nothing really matters >>>>>>>>> 

Migeal clearly stated this was his opinion, so I dont see the need for asking for receipts and/or confrontation . I personally dont find too many similiarities between these songs, but we should rec

You don't seem to understand what it means when you say "sample" or "sampling". They sound alike because this is house music. Not because Alice is a "low sampling" of Nothing Really Matters.  :mattafact:

Well you can't call it a "sample" because for that to happen, there is a process for that. Gaga will have to ask for permission from Madonna to be able to "sample" Nothing Really Matters or any of her songs. You're using "sample" so loosely as if every song that sounds alike is a "sample". :eheeek: There is no such thing as "low sampling". You're either allowed to sample a song or not. You'd do well to research on this. :mattafact:

They sound alike because there's a pulsing synth, it's a feature in dance music from the 90's, such as "Show Me Love", "Free from Desire" etc.

 

The source of inspiration is the same; 90s Dance Music.

 

Stop trying to further this tired subject.

Alice remains supreme :letitburn:

Also I am having trouble hearing any similarities sound-wise.

this is the same thing that happens with people that think that Now That I Found You is a ripoff of Wake Me Up

I don't know why people has a hard time differentiating between two songs that are actually the same (like a true sample or "copy") and two songs that belong to the same genre / style. :beynah:

These two songs sound similar, because they're the same style (or at least Gaga TRIED to make this album sound like 90's Dance music, though she felt short in my opinion, because she missed a lot of the charm and structure from the songs of that era) and same with NTIFY music break and WMU. But if you get like the music sheet of the songs, you would see they're completely different, different assortment of notes, etc.

 

That said, even though Alice is one of the best songs of Chromatica, Nothing Really Matters is so much better. Again, Gaga tried, but the only thing she got from 90's music was that beat on the base of each song, but she missed the structure, the length and the catchy chorus / hook that characterized the music from that decade. :yaknow:
