On a slightly unrelated note, aren’t the first few notes of the the “Jai Ho” song reminiscent of the first few lines of ABBA’s “Money, Money, Money”? Before you pull out the pitchforks( I’m already ducking for the rotten eggs), my intent was not to suggest that A.R. Rahman is guilty of plagiarism( I’m sure he isn’t) but that ABBA may have been a little underrated.

    There are any number of stories (the one about the needle is the best known) about our ability to be “inspired” by other people’s work. In fact we can take legitimate pride in doing a great job of “making our own” what we see around us.
