Pop Conspiracy: Madonna's "Miles Away" Vs. Victoria Beckham's "Midnight Fantasy"

Thanks, XO London!

I've become such a conspiracy theorist about all these songs that sound like others, so it's time for a new feature: Pop Conspiracy. And how lucky we are to have such unbridled, raw talent for the first one -- Madonna and Victoria Beckham.

Check out how similar Madge's "Miles Away" -- rumored to be the third single off Hard Candy -- is to "Midnight Fantasy," a track of Posh's 2001 solo album (available on U.S. iTunes, if you can believe it).

Christ. At least now we know there's someone Madonna can sing better than. "Midnight Fantasy" was written by Beckham (right!!!), Anders Hansson and Johan Ã…berg, but nowhere on Madge's souped-up Timbaland jam are these maestros credited. How that Olde Vampyre constantly gets away with this kind of thievery boggles the mind.

FINAL VERDICT: Madonna is hereby sentenced to three months straight of listening to Posh's solo album on a continuous, horrific loop.

    I don't hear the similarity beyond having a similar tempo. The melodies are different.

    Just when you thought Madonna has scraped the bottom of the barrel, she steals from the only woman in the music industry with less vocal ability and charisma.

    The only thing the same is the melody of Posh's chorus and the verse of Madonna's. And that is so simple and reminicent of dozens of other already existing songs.

    There's no plagarism here.

    As if I needed another reason, Madonna has slid even lower on my list. I still don't get the blind following she gets!

    Embarrassed to say that I actually own the VB album (and 2 unreleased cds I found online -- the second pop album, and the disaterous r&b one she did with Damon Dash). I always liked Midnight Fantasy, but the best song on that is the ballad Unconditional Love.

    I hear the resemblance, but Madonna's kicks VB's ass. I doubt she's every heard that song.

    Even if she had, it's not like the Spice Girls, Gwen, Britney, haven't ripped Madonna off..
