holy crap! i thought i was the only fan of sakamoto ryuichi up in here!!!!!! but, i don't hear that much of a resemblance between way back home and forbidden colours. FC features more of an 'oriental' vibe in my opinion

U don't hear it? It is really obvious.

David Sylvian married Ingrid Chavez too. Interesting.

Yeah, we'll, we'll try to imagine what silence looks like.

I'm listening to both back to back right now and I'm not hearing that much similarity either.

I'm a huge fan of both Ryuichi Sakamoto and David Sylvian. My wife walked down the aisle to "Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence" (the instrumental version of "Forbidden Colours") -- but I'm not hearing the comparison either.

Interesting........I hear it quite clear. Different folks different sounds I guess.

Sorry GC seems to be quite a reach to find the similarities on these songs
The greatest live performer of our times was is and always will be Prince.

Remember there is only one destination and that place is U

OMG, I love Aakamoto Ryuichi!

They sound only remotely similar to me.

I'm familiar with them and that was one of my favorite songs back in the eighties and I don't hear it. Maybe the vibe is somewhat similar but that's it.

I can definately hear it graycap. I also think way back homes music stylistically reminds me of some early Bjork.

YES! But some current Bjork too, especially her last album.

I don't really hear the resemblances with Way Back Home, to be honest.

I know Sakamoto best from The Last Emperor soundtrack. He and David Byrne each made half of the soundtrack, but I prefer Sakamoto's work.

One thing they do have in common is that they're both beautiful and sensory pieces of work.

Right on. I was thinking around that era. The Post album or the Homogenic album.

There are some definite similarities there but I wouldn't go so far as to say they sound very similar. If we ever hear Prince play WBH solo on a piano the similarities may be more obvious.

Actually, it's more like Forbidden Colours echoes some of the chords and majestic pace of Purple Rain.

Forbidden Colours was released in 1983, Purple Rain one year later.

it was recorded in August 1983 and written earlier that summer. I'm fairly sure Prince had Bob Seger in mind way more than a fairly obscure Japanese composer (at the time). There are some similarities but in all cases the songs are substially different (and of course, I wasn't saying any parties were influenced).

I posted it one week ago...Of course WAY BACK HOME is a plagiarism of Sakamoto : it's the same melody in more simple, with less notes. It's incredible to not recognize the song.

The intro of FNR is very similar to that of Smoke on The Water

A friend told me that PLECTRUM ELECTRUM is a copycat of a Panthera song, sadly, don't remember the name, the exact same riff
