More Madonna Thefts Uncovered (Part 3)

Madonna Ripped Off Kylie’s Music

Madonna exhausted from ripping everybody off and excessive plastic surgery

Continuing the theme of uncovering and unraveling the many copyright thefts that comprise Madonna’s fraudulent career, this week let’s take a look at another of the Queen of Poop’s rip offs.

In 1990 Kylie Minogue released the song “Better The Devil You Know” which she still routinely performs at her concerts, some of which Madonna has attended in recent years, as photographs attest (no doubt with her pen and pad to rip stuff off). The song was re-released in 1998 and went up the charts again.

Fast forward several years to 2005 and pathetic Madonna, who has ripped off Minogue many times, knocked off Kylie’s preexisting song “Better The Devil You Know” for her song screecher “Like It Or Not” that appeared on her last album “Confessions On A Dance Floor,” which according to Reuters “flopped” (regardless of Madonna’s receipt-less, lying claims of outselling everyone in 2005 and 2006).

While, I’m not a fan of either song due to the message of encouraging women to choose someone that’s not the best based on familiarity and Madonna’s rip off sounding plain awful and stupid, there are infringements.

Not only do the songs sound alike, contain the same melodies and rhythm, they share mutual lyrics as illustrated below. The infringements are color coded according to mutual lyrics appearing in both songs (left to right at different places), with Madonna’s substandard, poorly sung track being the rip off recorded and released years later:

Kylie’s “Better The Devil You Know” 1990 Madonna’s “Like It Or Not” 2005
Better the devil you know
Better the devil you know

Woh
Better the devil you know
Better the devil you know

Woh woh woh
Say you won’t leave me no more
I’ll take you back again
No more excuses no, no
‘Cos I’ve heard them all before
A hundred times or more

[CHORUS:]
I’ll forgive and forget
If you say you’ll never go
‘Cos its true what they say
It’s
better the devil you know

Woh woh woh
Our love wasn’t perfect I know
I think I know the score
If you say
you love me, oh boy
I can’t ask for more
I’ll come if you should call

[CHORUS:]

I’ll be here every day
Waiting for
your love to show
Yes it’s true what they say
It’s
better the devil you know

Woh woh woh
I’ll take you back
I’ll take you back again
I’ll take you back
I’ll take you back again

I’ll be the garden, you’ll be the snake
All of my fruit is yours to take
Better the devil that you know
Your love for me will grow
Because
This is who I am
You can like it or not
You can love me or leave me
Cause I’m never gonna stop, no no

Cleopatra had her way
Matahari too
Whether they were good or bad
Is strictly up to you

Don’t let the fruit rot under the vine
Fill up your cup and let’s drink the wine
Better the devil that you know
Your love for me will grow
Because

This is who I am
You can like it or not
You can love me or leave me
Cause I’m never gonna stop, no no, you know
This is who I am
You can like it or not
You can love me or leave me
Cause I’m never gonna stop, no no, you know

No no, you know
No no,
you know
No no,
you know
No no,
you know
