Coldplay Accused of Stealing Another Song was a top story from May and here it is again as we look back at the biggest stories from 2009 so far: (Reuters) Singer-songwriter Cat Stevens agreed on Monday that the Coldplay song, "Viva La Vida," sounds like one of his 1973 songs, but he stopped short of saying he would sue for plagiarism.

"My son brought it to my attention and said: 'Doesn't that sound like 'Foreigner Suite?'" the musician, now known as Yusuf Islam, told Reuters. "The song definitely sounds like it," he said of his song. "It has such logical chords and the melody has to be what it is..."

Asked during a telephone interview from London whether he would pursue the issue legally, Islam, 60, said "it depends on how well Satriani does." [Interesting: since Satch says the Coldplay song was lifted from his tune, does this mean Satch lifted it from Cat?] - more on this story
