Here's a thread dedicated to those singing 'artists' whose only claim to fame is/was in ripping off other musical artists.
Let's get started:
Why is the signature Neil Diamond guitar riff from CHERRY CHERRY used so blatantly in THE ROMANTICS song WHAT I LIKE ABOUT YOU? To make matters worse, their rip-off is even being used in a tv commercial.
Why is Bob Dylan's tune, meter and rhyme scheme from SUBTERRANEAN HOMESICK BLUES so blatantly used in ESCAPE CLUB's song, WILD, WILD WEST? It is so obvious, they could never hope to deny it and get away with it.
Why didn't Whitney Houston sue the pants off of Mariah Carey for ripping off her singing style and stage antics? It should've been so obvious to Whitney and yet she has gone the other route by even praising Mariah for the rip-off. Oh well, I guess that complete imitation is the sincerest form of flattery--- and for making a buck, no doubt.

But one thing Whitney and Mariah have in common is that they are both loons, off their rocker, a few bricks short of a load, their bread is half baked, their elevator doesn't go all the way to the top. Thats about it..
