Ill appologise in advance for this but i dont remember anyone ever mentioning this but i refuse to believe that it hasnt been!

Anyway - it has just been pointed out to me that the lyrics in French Dog Blues - all i ever wanted was the one with the flag......... is stolen from Mr Ian Browns Deep Pile Dreams on Unfinished Monekey Business and he is credited on the album cover.

Has this been discussed?

Yeah, like about a year ago when we first heard French Dog Blues.
It's not news, sorry.

I heard the "permanently plastered pissed up bastard" bit was lifted from another song too. Is that true?

'Baddies Boogie' was a song by one of Mick's old bands, but I think all they took was the title. Not sure, though.

Hmm I'm sure I'd heard that lyric was lifted from another band's song.

Pete quite often uses bits from other peoples songs and poems in his songs. Wasnt some of a Emily Dickinson poem used in 'At the Flophouse'???? My supervisor at work tells me he has used one or two morrisey lines aswell.

I thought "I Love you (But you're green)" would have been an obvious one? Lines taken from Brighton Rock by Graeme Green. "Fuck Forever is" a Sex Pistols title. "What Katie Did" lyrics are in a Chas n Dave song too. The Line "Gin in teacups.." is from 1984 by George Orwell. I can't think of any more at the moment but I am sure there are more lines nicked from somewhere or other.

Erm is it just me or is everyone completely stating the obvious here?

Doherty is well known for referencing alot in his songs, even musically ("can you play no fun?" followed by stooges riffage)

Infact so are many many great songwriters since the beginning of pop music.

Have fun pointing out certain references but by using the word "nicking" then youre completely missing the point.
