Default Flaming Lips/"Mind Games" connection...

You know that Flaming Lips song that goes, "Do you realize....." that has been on those commercials for whatever product/company?

Well, some time ago, I realized (hee! that was unintentional) that it sounds a bit like, "Mind Games".... from the orchestration to the chord progression down to the "Do - you - realize...." melody. Sounds like "Playing those Mind Games...".

I don't know much more of that song than what is played on the commercial. But that part at least is very "Mind Games"-esque.

Anyone else pick up on that?

Default of course there is

no question "Do YOu Realize" is a ripoff -- they used the non-sung melody of Mind Games and added words, and the orchestration and chord progressins are identical.

if you need further proof, Flaming Lips used to perform Mind Games in their shows in 1992:

the interesting thing here is, that show performance is strictly the Mind Games song, with no orchestration-- but when they wrote Do You Realize, they actually made the studio cut liek the Mind Games production, with bug sweeeping orchestral parts.

not sure if it was unconscious -- just the result of playing it so many times

hard to say.
