Wait a sec! Paul Anka is still alive???? Since when???
We gather most you don't even know who that is, so we'll enlighten you: He's a really old singer. There, now you are educated.
It's possible that some of you found Michael Jackson's new song familiar sounding, and if that is the case, let Paul clear the air for you. He is claiming that This Is It is a rip-off of a song he wrote for Jackson back in 1983. MJ had turned the song down, so Paul gave it to another artist named Safire.
However, before all that, Paul had recorded demo tapes with Michael singing the song titled I Never Heard. It was after these demos were made that MJ walked away from the song, but he kept the demo tapes for himself. At the time, Paul got his lawyers involved to get them back, but he was never successful. Now, Paul is claiming that the This Is It is using samples from those demo tapes.
We've taken a listen and the similarities are undeniable. As far as we can see, Paul has got himself a case!
