Noah and the Whale Vs The Kinks

I’m sure many people have noticed the similarity between Noah and the Whale’s new single L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N and The Kinks famous song Lola, have you?

It is uncanny how close the melody is in the verse but I don’t think it helps that the voices are also similar. Whether it is plagiarism or not doesn’t really matter to us ‘punters’ but I do remember hearing L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N for the first time and thinking, ‘I know this song’… when I realised why I thought I knew it I felt a bit cheated. However, I like the song… but could it be because I like Lola?? This could go on for a while couldn’t it.
