Uptown Lawsuit! Mars and Ronson Sued Over Uptown Funk!
Producer Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars are being sued over their HUGE hit "Uptown Funk".
A Minneapolis band named Collage claims that Ronson and Mars ripped off their 1983 song "Young Girls". According to Pitchfork, part of the suit claims, “Upon information and belief, many of the main instrumental attributes and themes of ‘Uptown Funk’ are deliberately and clearly copied from ‘Young Girls.’” They even go as far as saying that, if you play the songs back to back, you cannot tell them apart.
The members of Collage are seeking a portion of the money made from "Uptown Funk"
Personally, I can hear a few similarities, but I would NEVER get the two confused.
