New Lostprophets single sounds like WOWY?!

After hearing Lostprophets' new single "Where We Belong" for the first time today... has anyone else noticed the similarities to "With or Without You" including something that sounds suspiciously similar to the high-pitched "woo-oo-oo-ooh" bit Bono does near the end of WOWY (before the instrumental outro section)... ?

 

Errrm? LOSTPROPHETS, NO!! mad.gif

 

It makes me sad that there doesn't seem to be much good original music being written any more.

I just went and listened to the song. I'm not hearing the WOWY similarities. At all.

 

Though if we're talking about songs that sound like WOWY, listen to Shadow of the Day by Linkin Park.

Linkin Park's last tour took a page off how U2 run their setlists. Excellent live band, and one of the best sounding shows I've ever seen....thanks to 'Pooch', their FOH guy. If 'Shadow of the Day' is their 'Bad', then 'What I've Done' is their 'Streets'.

Mate, I can't listen to Shadow Of The Day without singing WOWY over the top. Same goes for Maroon 5 "And She will Be Loved.

 

check this out...

Yes, they are a good live band.  Not the point of what I was saying at all.  All I was saying was that Shadow of the Day sounds similar to WOWY.

I'm hoping for Linkin Park to return to the UK this summer, so that I can see them then - and hopefully they'll still have Pendulum on as a support act. 

As for the topic of the thread - Where We Belong bears only one similarity with WOWY, and that is the bassline in the chorus. The rest is completely different.
