Shut Up And Kiss Me Downtown

Man, the radio at work is full of things to notice.

Today, they played a song called Shut Up And Kiss Me, which I had to look up…

… it turns out it’s by Mary Chapin Carpenter, from her 1994 album Stones In The Road.

The riff sounded really familiar… so familiar…


Yup, it was Neil Young’s Downtown! But wait…

…that song, released in 1995, was recorded with members of Pearl Jam for the Mirrorball album, and was even nominated for Best Rock Song at the 1996 Grammys!

So,,, if Mary Chapin Carpenter released hers in 1994, and Neil’s was 1995… um, Neil, what’s up?


Am I the only one hearing similarities in the riff, here? Drop a comment!
