Is it just me or is this guy (or the person who writes his songs) copying lots of melodies and tunes from other artists.

The two most clear examples of this are Supreme and Sexed Up.

Supreme has many parts that sound very close to Gloria Gaynor's I Will Survive and Sexed Up has a part that sounds exactly like Jon Bon Jovi's Janie Don't You Take Your Love To Town.

In my opinion Robbie is just a "copy cat" who is copying everything from the latest decades. Parts of his stage performance are similar to Freddie Mercury's, parts are to Frank Sinatras. His songs "borrow" lots from older songs.

Wow, another "highly intelligent" Robbie bashing thread appears to be popping up from the usual suspects....

Give me a break, he paid Gaynor lots of money in order to use that sample.

His songs are good, but his voice is just as annoying as he is himself.

I have to admit he has a kind of a good voice, but he's a prick and most of his songs are crap.

I'm not a fan myself, but at least puts on a bit of a show. Put it this way, I'd rather go and watch his show than Sting's.

Mind you, I'd rather pop my head in a bucket of shit than watch Sting.

Robbie is a brilliant entertainer, a bit of a twat at times but who cares.

Whoever wrote I Will Survive gets a writing credit on Supreme anyway so he didn't steel (sic) it at all he asked permission.


Guess who's back?

"Parts of his stage performance are similar to Freddie Mercury's"

Most of his stage performance is similar to Freddie's. I went to see him live last summer and most of the time I was thinking "just like Freddie".
I like Robbie but that annoys me.

He once said "I should front Queen". I wonder if he thinks he can be a sort of "second Freddie Mercury"...

Not the best singer/entertainer in the world could ever be like Fred.
