C&L's Late Nite Music Club - Friday Night Ripoffs (?) With Thin Lizzy And Kenny Dorham

It's Friday, and that means it's time for the new installment of Friday Night Ripoffs(?). Every Friday, two songs, where one of them might very well be a gigantic ripoff of the other.

Parisienne Walkways by Gary Moore and Phil Lynott (both of Thin Lizzy, but not a Thin Lizzy song) sounds an awful lot like Kenny Dorham's Latin jazz staple Blue Bossa. Coincidence? Or was Gary Moore aping his jazz records knowing that most of his fans would never know?

Tell us what you think, and leave some suggestions for next week's theft investigation in the comments.
