Three days before the start of the European Cup in 2020, U2 and Martin Garrix’s refrain We are the People played continuously in commercials. That trumpet march is very similar to “Ringo Starr” by Nuclear Tactical Penguins. Fans talk about plagiarism, but the singer treats it with the usual irony: “Call me Albano di Albino”.
Three days after the event European Football Championship 2020 We have now learned to listen to the ruthless chorus, the trumpet march of “We are the People” created by the collaboration of U2, especially Bono & The Edge and DJ/producer Martin Garrix. In fact, the media is so similar to one of the most popular San Remo hits in recent years, the nuclear tactical Penguin’s “Ringo Starr”, and it has caused a wave of waves on social media. The band leader’s response, Riccardo Zanotti, It reached Facebook, but just like the lead singer and the band itself, this is a laughing answer.
Riccardo Zanotti’s comments on possible plagiarism from U2
Nuclear Tactics Penguin leader Ricardo Sanotti wrote on Facebook: “Call me Albano”, referring to seeing the singer from Cellino San Marco involved in a game The lawsuit, and then he lost “because in fact it does not exist”, Michael Jackson’s song “You Will Be There” was considered equivalent to “Baraka’s Swan” by the singer. The singer’s irony even got the smile of his own fans.
The meaning of the song “We are the people”
The paragraph “We are the people” certainly reminds us of “Ringo Starr”, but now Riccardo Zanotti also used a joke to dispel doubts, to see what we sang the official national anthem of the Euro 2020 has completely different latitudes. This song aroused the interest of the audience in the Olympic Stadium, who followed the performance in a “virtual mini concert” and brought back the important themes of the entire U2 production: There is electricity in the room, sparks burst from the sun, we are the people we have been waiting for, we are the people with open hands, we are the streets of Dublin. All things, more or less, we have seen and heard in the past of the band. Maybe “Lingo Starr” is a more primitive thread.
