In 1979, The Bellamy Brothers released a track called “If I Said You Had A Beautiful Body,” with the lyrics “If I said you had a beautiful body, would you hold it against me?” Needless to say, they are a bit peeved about Britney Spears‘s new song having very similar lyrics. I’m a little undecided on whether I think this is even an issue. The lyrics aren’t even exactly the same and their song came out over thirty years ago.
David Bellamy explains, “Howard and I have no personal beef with Britney. She’s a talented gal. But professionally we feel completely ripped off.” Britney’s HIAM lyrics say, “If I said I want your body now, would you hold it against me?”
Listen to the track below and share your thoughts on whether or not you think they have a case here.
