The Top 10 Soundalike Songs

Hello Friends!


SO THIS WEEK ON THE TOP 10 WAS A BLAST. For one, it was an extra HALF AN HOUR of hearing the beautiful music and talking of The Top 10. In addition to that, it was a super cool theme.


This week on The Top 10 we explored the Top 10 pairs of songs that sounded suspiciously alike. Suffice it to say, many of the ‘original’ artists were not fully convinced that it was pure coincidence that their songs sounded identical.

Robin Daprato

My name is Robin Daprato and I am a third year English and Sociology major. Ever since I was a kid music was my life. I ate, breathed and lived it. My dad started my musical education at a young age and while all my friends were belting out tunes of The Spice Girls and Britney Spears, I was listening to the likes of The Who and Bob Dylan. This early passion about music made my dream of becoming a music journalist become clear early on. I dreamed of one day writing for Uncut or The Rolling Stone like some of my favourite music journalists including Robert Palmer. I am super excited to start this radio show and be able to share my love and knowledge for music with our listeners.
