Yeah and like when Brand New used the lyrics from that Cure song. Who cares?

I feel like I'm stating the obvious, but if no harm was done, why is her camp still so silent about it? The fact that there is so much silence from the Swift camp means she knows she got caught.

And like Jason said, he's not asking for monetary value, he just wants the credit that it's his line. I have never liked Taylor Swift and this just only adds to that displeasure.
Or maybe she doesn't read through all of her twitter mentions..

Well, she already basically ripped off that entire Saving Jane song, so is this really all that surprising?

edit: also, if it is an "homage", isn't it customary to credit the source in the lyric booklet? like Paramore did when they used a Refused lyric in "Born for This"?

Holy shit I never even realized it but she totally did!

When "You Belong With Me" started getting played on the radio, I was really confused, because I thought it WAS that song.Totally shameful on Taylor Swift's part.

Am I the only one who has a hard time thinking Swift has heard the Saving Jane song prior to writing YBWM?
It was pretty popular so I doubt it. I remember it all over MTV when I was a kid.

Seems especially petty and dumb to complain about it from a guy who constantly interpolates bits of covers into his own songs live...

does the melody of "state of grace" remind anyone else of another song? it sounds exactly like something, but i can't place it.

Hmm, again, that lyric just seems so vague that it could have been accidental, but it's not unbelievable to think TEN was influenced by/borrowed ideas from TGUK. Many bands have.. TGUK were just that good, ha. Glad nothing ever came of it though. I'm okay with borrowing lyrics and such, so long as it's not totally obvious or due credit is given.

Swift should respond to this in one way or another, though. She has to know about it by now.
Yeah, it was most definitely intentional. It's delivered the exact same way. But it was just that, a rumor. For a long, long time. However, on the where's the band tour, both Pryor and Enders were there, jammin' together. So I highly doubt it was ever even cared about. Haha.

The lyric by itself could be, but add to it that they sang it exactly as TGUK did (melody and timing) then you can see it's an homage. Though if memory serves TEN have stated that TGUK were big influences on them, which isn't all that surprising.
