Bad news for Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson – they’ve been accused of coping their big hit “Uptown Funk” from a 1980’s girl group called “The Sequence.”
A lawyer for the Sequence says that Uptown Funk sounds too much like the Sequence song “Funk You Up”
The lawyer says the band is considering a lawsuit.
Mark Ronson says that when you have a hit, people come out of the woodwork to try and claim it… and this is just another example.
Ok, you be the judge…. here are the songs:
First, Uptown Funk:
And now, “Funk you Up”
So, what do you think? Too similar? ….or just a money grab?
