This one is certainly hard to ignore. Jules De Martino and Katie White of the English Pop Due The Ting Tings must have been checking out some classic rock stations in Manchester when they formed in December 2004 because their song Great DJ lifts the "money riff" from Eddie Money's 1977 #1 classic Baby Hold On. An interesting sidenote to this story is the fact that Money was sued by Ray Evans and Jay Livingston for plagiarizing the lyrics of the song Que Sera, Sera made popular by Doris Day, specifically the line "Whatever Will Be, Will Be," so apparently that line is trademarked. Money reportedly paid the damages in court with real money in lieu of Eddie Money merchandise.
