    Hi,

    For all those of you familiar with the White Town 1997 song "Your Woman" (which steals the main melody and some lyrics from an old Depression-era song, Lew Stone and Al Bowlly's 1933 song "My Woman" (original 1932 version recorded and co-written by Bing "You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby" Crosby) as well as some musical references from The Buggles' "Video Killed the Radio Star"), some of you are thinking WT founder Jyoti Mishra stole part of John Williams' "Imperial March" song (from the 1980 Star Wars film "Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back"), but you are all mistaken.

    There is a humorous video about the mistaken similarity of the two songs on YouTube:

    Bing Crosby's estate/heirs/heiresses should take a bite out of John Williams' musical royalties over this.

      I remember when I first heard "Your Woman" I noticed the Imperial March theme similarity. Good song though.
