"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

There's also "What I Got" by Sublime, who took the tune from "Lady Madonna".

That's why there's lots of songs with the name "Rain" and "Lies!". Lots more I can think of at the top of my head.

Man, that is some awful lyric quoted there - even worse than Paul's original! Probably should be glad I've never heard the song. (I DO own a TLC album, believe it or not! It's got a couple of tracks on it I like. Not "Waterfalls", though.) I'm assuming that the TLC song's melody sounds nothing like Paul's, otherwise they probably would've gotten sued. I don't think that the brief bit of lyric similarity alone is actionable, any more than "Run For Your Life", for example.

Funny Paper, evidently you're not familiar with this fine 1984 album by The Replacements:

http://www.albumoftheyear.org/.....-it-be.jpg

(No song called "Let It Be" is included on this album - although their previous album did include a song called "Mr. Whirly" that managed to steal from both "Strawberry Fields Forever" and "Oh! Darling". Although I suppose you could call it more of an homage than a steal. Either way, I doubt Paul McCartney has ever heard it.)

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney
