Hmm. We’ve had a few people ask us whether Universal Music has the new Cascada single on the horizon locally yet, but we’re here to report that so far nothing’s on the schedule.
We were big fans of the German outfit’s previous single ‘Pyromania’ and fans at the time were screaming out for a new single. ‘San Francisco’ is that new single. Or is it? ‘Cause for our money it sounds like a direct rip-off of Katy Perry’s recent No.1 mega-hit ‘California Gurls’.
From the chord structures to the added male vocal to the synths to… well heck, which US state is San Francisco in anyway? (Er… that’d be California). The similarities between the two songs are undeniable.
There is, however, a little lull in proceedings while our flower-power wild child makes her way from the love bus into the club. But then ‘CG Pt.2’ starts blaring again.
Katy Perry called – she wants her song back.
