In my cruising the webs tonight I came across a few things that I was completely unaware of. I was looking up info on the Leo Sayers song, “You Make Me Feel Like Dancing”. Ya ya I know, but I like it damn it!!! Anyway, as I am reading through the wiki age, it is said that Ray Parker Jr claims to have written the song. As I reason I also see that he played guitar on it

Forgive my ignorance, but I had no idea of anything Ray has done outside Ghostbusters. I gotsta tell ya tho, Ray is one funky mofo!!!!

Ray Parker was later found to have plagiarized the Ghostbusters song from Huey Lewis’s “I want a new drug”. Had to pay Huey.

Technically, I believe it was settled out of court before any 'finding'. But thanks for the reminder, I'd forgotten about that one.
