Some music fans are saying that the new James Bond theme song for the movie Spectre, Writings on the Wall, sounds awfully similar to Michael Jackson’s Earth song. Some of these music fans even took to Twitter to express how similar they think the two songs seem to be.
Really enjoying Sam Smith’s remix of MJ’s ‘Earth Song’.

Now while some fans are saying they are similar in the way they sound the two songs sound, there are also people who think they sound nothing alike. I think you just need to make your own decision on whether or not Sam Smith may have ripped off the iconic Michael Jackson song.
Listen to the two songs below and leave us a comment to let us know if you think the songs sound awfully similar.
