Ed Sheeran is being accused of stealing his hit song “Photograph”. Now he is being sued for $20 million by songwriters Martin Harrington and Thomas Leonard. They claim say Sheeran’s song ripped off their song “Amazing” which was recorded and released by X Factor winner Matt Cardle in 2012.
Apparently the songs have a lot of the same chord progressions and the choruses are almost the exact same. They share 39 identical notes in pitch, rhythmic duration and placement in the measure. Do you think “Photograph” sounds like “Amazing“?
