I know the song below was created before the "soundtrack" it rips off of (so, it could be the opposite), but I find it funny either way:

"Fun Fun Boy" by Go Go Girls Feat. Annalise & Virginelle (from 0:07 to 0:25 - ie. the organ)

and

The organ love in the Mario Kart 64 soundtrack... Especially the "Circuit" song. It's first thing that came to mind when I heard "Fun Fun Boy". Seriously.

"Mayak" by the Russian rock band Splin is a spin-off of Kinki's "Tump Tump Tump", especially the riff.

Actually, there are so many eurobeat songs that rip off F.C.F.'s "Bad Desire" that you can barely count them all.

Love Desire / Macho Gang
Rock in the Fire / Roswell
Bad Desire / Go Go Girls
I Can't Find a Lover / Delta Queens
Baby's on Fire / David Lord
Space Racing / Mega NRG Man

Those are just a few.

Not only does F.C.F's "Bad Desire" take the riff off from Tom Hooker "Looking for Love" but the a-melo (first verse melody) of "Bad Desire" and all the other similar eurobeat songs already mentioned on here similar to Bad Desire (which are many!) are actually copying the first verse melody from Michael Davidson "Turn it Up" which predates all the other italo eurobeat songs.

On another note, the riff from Mike Freeman's "What is Real" takes the riff from Michael Davison "Turn it Up"
Also the riff from Maio & Co "Walking On The Moon" copies the same riff from Michael Davison "Turn it Up"

There's more! :P
then the chorus melody of Thomas & Schubert "Crank It Up" copies the chorus melody of Michael Davidson "Turn it Up". :P :P The song names are quite similar too!


So to sum it up better, in reference to original material copied (ie. Michael Davidson - Turn It Up, F.C.F. - Bad Desire, Tom Hooker - Looking For Love)

Bad Desire / F.C.F. ---> riff copied riff from "Looking For Love", a-melo copied a-melo from "Turn It Up"
Crank It Up / Thomas & Schubert ---> chorus copied chorus from "Turn It Up"
What Is Real / Mike Freeman ---> riff copied riff from "Turn It Up"
Walking On The Moon / Maio & Co ---> riff copied riff from "Turn It Up"
Let Me Go / Stefan X Predator ---> chorus copied chorus "Turn It Up"
Body Rock / Alpha Town ---> riff copied riff from "Looking For Love"
Hopes & Dreams / Albert One ---> riff copied riff from "Looking For Love"
Take Me In Your Limousine / Angie Davies ---> riff copied riff from "Looking For Love"
Mickey Mouse March/ Domino ---> riff copied from "Looking For Love"
Love Desire / Macho Gang ---> riff copied riff from "Looking For Love", a-melo copied a-melo from "Turn it Up"
King & Queen / King & Queen ---> riff copied riff from "Looking For Love"'
Rock in the Fire / Roswell ---> chorus copied chorus from "Bad Desire"
Bad Desire / Go Go Girls ---> chorus copied chorus from "Bad Desire"
I Can't Find a Lover / Delta Queens ---> chorus copied chorus from "Bad Desire"
Baby's on Fire / David Lord ---> chorus copied chorus from "Bad Desire"
Space Racing / Mega NRG Man ---> chorus copied chorus from "Bad Desire"s chorus
Delta Force / Relight My Fire ---> chorus copied chorus from "Bad Desire", a-melo copied a-melo from "Turn It Up"

Here's a different one:
Music Fever / DJ Luke Penn feat. Mr. M ---> the a-melo2 (the bridge) copied chorus from Aha "The Sun Always Shines On TV"

Mister Max - Mayday (That's Eurobeat Mix)(1997) samples the riff from Ramone - Let's Go (1991)

A couple of new ones.

Fastway - Got The Power

the synth riff is same melody from

Marc Almond's "Tears Run Rings

Dream Fighters - Dance For Love

The part after chorus together with "I Want Your Love is from

Dead or Alive 'You Spin Me Round (Like A Record)

These are actually the reasons why I love those two songs even more.

Newfield used to rehash parts of old Time songs for some of his Delta songs. If you don't know them yet, listen to Aleph - Bad Power or Danny Keith - Mad Girl.
All Your Love is a great song, by the way!

Yeah. That's legit though. I know that Philippine girl group called Sexbomb. They were visited Japan for their promotion of their first ever album in that time.

Apparently, Avex got an atttention to them (Avex was also involved in music industry in the Philippines but it's kind of obscure since it's rare..) i guess :grin:

Good one. It was even more evident in the extended Hi-NRG remix of the song.

Dee Dee – Butterfly: The intro is directly jacked from Genesis' "Firth of Fifth," albeit a half-step down in key.
