    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Did Pink Floyd rip off Bruce Lee?

    This is a very weird observation I made the other day whilst watching The Big Boss on DVD (I think it was called 'The Chinese Connection' for the Americans on the forum).

    When I put it to the original Chinese soundtrack - one of the background tunes sounded exactly like a track off Pink Floyd's 'The dark side of the moon'. (Its the moody atmospheric one with a clock ticking and guitar overlayed) At first I thought - OMG they took a pink floyd track and used it without permission.

    I then realised that The Big Boss was released a good 7+ years before Pink Floyd's 'The Dark side of the Moon'. I'm surprised no one has made this connection before but I guess it onlya ppears on the Cantonese version of the film and not the english dub - and I doubt Pink Floyd were ever that bif Hong Kong.

    So is it possible that a so called 'intellectual' british band ripped off some nameless Hong Kong music composer who probably got paid next to nothing for his efforts?

    Probably. I hear tunes being ripped off all the time, and never any credit given.

    It's possible it's just a coincidence...also, how could they have been ripping off Bruce Lee? Did HE write the music for that song!?

    Actually the title ofmy thread was misleading. No I doubt bruce lee wrote it. But I doubt its coincidence - not only is it the same tune - but an almost identical arrangement.

    I think you're 100%, and it goes on all the time. Musicians take things from all over the place IMO.
