Do you remember Whigfield’s dance floor classic (OK that was a little OTT) “Saturday Night”? Well the song was an absolute smash in 1994, but did you know that Whigfield was sued by Lindisfarne? Why did that happen I hear you say, well largely because the Geordie gang that was Lindisfarne felt that “Saturday Night” was a rip-off of their north east anthem “Fog On The Tyne”. Seriously? You’re having a laugh right? Nope it is absolutely true! The Lindisfarne boys lost as did the Equals who but together a similar legal challenge over their own “Rub A Dub Dub”. Are they even close to be similar? I will leave that for you to be the judge, but personally I think that the Equals have the best case although theirs and Whigfield’s songs are both a bit shite right?
