Has Pharrell ripped off Franz Ferdinand for Paloma Faith?




OK, no lawsuits have been filed yet but Franz Ferdinand's Alex Kapranos thinks that parts of Paloma Faith's new single "Can't rely on You" sounds an awful lot like "Take Me Out".

Tweeting to Pharrell, who wrote and produced the track Alex was actually rather lighthearted:


If you want to borrow a riff, just ask...

This being Twitter everyone wanted a say. One fan commented that maybe Alex could buy Pharrell a new hat once he had paid up to which he responded:


Again.

He even took the haters in stride with this very measured reply to a disgruntled Pharrell fan:


@bethsa01: Hey alex kapranos suck a fucking dick dont speak on pharrell like that youre a huge fag”

No comment from Pharrell or Paloma's people yet, but have a listen yourself. Sound a bit familiar?
