Ed Sheeran accused of plagiarizing Marvin Gaye with her song “Thinking Out Loud” – Le Monde

British singer Ed Sheeran was a little too inspired by Let’s Get it On, Marvin Gaye for his tube Thinking Out Loud and finds himself sued by the heirs of the author of the song, Ed Townsend.

“the melody, harmony and rhythm composition of” Thinking “look substantially, even striking composition for battery “Let’s” “, according to the complaint filed Tuesday in federal court in New York, by the heirs of Ed Townsend – who wrote the sensual tube with Marvin Gaye – and rights holders.

An inspiration rather assumed

the complainants felt that the British singer had ignored their warnings and quoted Let’s Get it is in concert. Visible YouTube video indeed shows the singer drag Thinking Out Loud Let’s Get it On on his guitar during a concert in 2014 in Zurich, . Switzerland

Ed Townsend heirs hope to convince jurors to prevent young British singer to interpret his ballad became very popular – and rewarded in February by the Grammy Award for song of the year – and to fix the amount of damages. Ed Sheeran, who is quoted as staff in the complaint, as its label and its label, are so far not responded.

Last year, the family of the legend “soul” Marvin Gaye was awarded $ 7.4 million (€ 6.6 million, then reduced to approximately EUR 1.8 million) by a jury who believed that Blurred Lines , tube Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams, plagiarized the famous song Got to Give it Up
