I think it's close enough, keeping in mind all the sound engineering that goes into the super polished Viva La Vida track. Really like both of these songs.

creaky boards song is much better. definite similarity in the form and melody in intro, but that's as far as it goes.

The CB take sounds like the Beach Boys to me. Maybe Brian Wilson and Mike Love should get in on the action too. ;-)

ColdPlay: We'll Steal From Anyone

The song has some sort of similarity
but nowadays, there are possibly millions of bands...what are the cances there aren't any two songs alike??
That said, I don't believe the song was stolen
cause coldplay's version shows different chords and different melody
throughout the song...
Is it possible that this other band is doing this for attention??
