Now if you want to talk ripoff, lets look at Bowie's 'Under Pressure' and Vanilla Ice's 'Ice, Ice, Baby'. I read somewhere that they got away with that by adding an extra note or beat to the baseline, or something like that.

And if you want to talk about bad songs you can't get out of your head, anyone remember the Banana Splits theme song!?!?!?
"Under Pressure" is a Queen song featuring David Bowie. Vanilla Ice did sample the song and has admitted it. No extra bass line note. He did lose in court, but purportedly purchased the rights to the song. Queen and Bowie were given writing credits for "Ice, Ice Baby"

One of the greatest bubblegum pop songs of all time. It was written by Jeff Barry and Andy Kim. Barry also co-wrote 'Da Doo Run Run', 'Doo Wah Diddy Diddy', 'Be My Baby' and 'Chapel of Love' among others. Andy Kim had a solo hit with "Rock Me Gently". They were back up singers on the Archies' songs. Barry was Jugheads voice for the songs in the cartoons. Other backup singers were:

Bobby Bloom of 'Montego Bay' fame. He also co-wrote "Mony Mony' for Tommy James.

Ritchie Adams who co-wrote "Tossin' and Turnin'" and the Banana Splits theme 'The Tra La La Song' (One Banana, Two Banana).

Ellie Greenwich who co-wrote with Jeff Barry the songs noted above.

The lead singer was Ron Dante. His true claim to fame is as Barry Manilow's longtime producer. Also a very nice person. I talked with him at one of the Chiller Theatre Shows in New Jersey.

Be My Baby -- a truly great song. Ronnie Spector had one of the best voices in pop history IMO.

Thanks for clarifying and correcting me. I always think just of Bowie with that song, and not Queen, for some reason. Never heard about that final legal outcome. I may mistakenly have been thinking of some other past copyright case and got Vanilla Ice's song in my head.

They did get the guitar player from Blue Oyster Cult to do this song.

Agreed. How about 'Oh No, Not My Baby' by Maxine Brown?

Agree 1000%. Probably the crowning glory for crazy Phil Spector. Simply a masterpiece.

With reminds me, almost time to find my Phil Spector Christmas Album. That is a pretty amazing accomplishment.

I have read that he considered River Deep Mountain High -- with a young Tina Turner -- his best song.

The Ronettes' Walking In The Rain is another Spector gem. If I recall correctly, Marvin Gaye wrote that one. Interestingly, for all Spector's perfectionism and borderline abusive treatment of his singers and musicians until he was satisfied, Ronnie Spector apparently did the lead track in a single take. The vocal is ethereal.

By contrast, Tina said Spector made her sing River Deep Mountain High so many times she was drenched in sweat and had to take her shirt off to finish.

Cashman also had a hit with the song Talkin' Baseball (Willie, Mickey and the Duke).
