(Newser) – Robin Thicke is in a battle with Marvin Gaye's family over whether his "Blurred Lines" is too similar to Gaye's "Got to Give It Up"—but "Blurred Lines" isn't the only song of the summer to face controversy. One Direction fans were upset over reports that The Who might force "Best Song Ever" off YouTube because it's too similar to "Baba O'Riley." Pete Townsend himself put those rumors to rest (and even claimed to be a One Direction fan). Time rounds up more songs that sound a lot alike—click through the gallery for a sampling, or check out the complete list (and more info on the songs).
