Paramore may soon need to share some of their financial success
with a fairly unknown band. The band Tenspoke Indies claims that parts of their
song, Starlighter was taken and used by Paramore, in hit
their song The Only Exception.
The suit, which was filed in U.S. District Court in Pennsylvania, asserts that in 2006, Tenspoke sent a copy of the song to Defendants’ record label, Fueled By Ramen. They had already performed Starlighter in concert, and on their album, Blinded By Sound.
Tenspoke never heard from the Paramore or FMB about their song. In 2009, Paramore released their album Brand New Eyes, which included The Only Exception. Tenspoke claims that there is substantial similarity between Starlighter and The Only Exception “including but not limited to, similarities in the introductions, arrangements, the chord progression, the key, the melody, the lyrical theme, the rhythm and tempo of both songs.”
Because of the similarities in the songs, and because Paramore has failed to credit Tenspoke, they are suing for copyright infringement. Tenspoke wants at least $75,000 for their work.
Both songs are beautiful. The best line from Starlighter is, “If you get lost on the way, and all your friends gave you away, then just reach for the stars up above. They’ll guide you when times get rough.”

Speaking to Indiana's Quad-City Times, York said:
"Whenever we write new material, I think, like most bands, we get really excited about the new stuff we write, and it's harder to go back and play older stuff, so I think we're kind of just focusing on the new record and squeezing as much life out of that as we can."
"We've kind of learned how to write songs from a really honest state," he added. "The music industry is in a really tough place, and I think a lot of bands are seeing what is successful and seeing what's popular, and they're trying to re-create that. I think we just have learned that that's just not what we're about and not what we like doing. And it seems like we have a lot more success when we just write from our hearts and write what we really feel is true. We're not trying to please anyone."

Band says ideas for new songs are often born on tour, but usually written at home.It seems odd to talk about "new" Paramore songs, given that their Brand New Eyes album is just seven months old, but the fact remains that there actually are some new tracks in the works ... albeit very slowly.
"[Frontwoman Hayley Williams] normally needs to rest her voice during show days, so she'll come to soundcheck sometimes and just listen to her in-ear monitors," drummer Zac Farro told MTV News on Saturday at the Bamboozle festival in New Jersey. "The other day, we were just messing around — we have a couple of songs we just play for fun. They're never anything we'll probably use, but we've been playing them for a while. [They're] just random, two-second things."
So while it sounds like those "two-second" things might not amount to much, Farro quickly added, "Actually, 'Decode' and 'I Caught Myself' [Paramore's two songs on the "Twilight" soundtrack] were kind of written that way, so you never really know."
Williams agreed, though she made it clear that the band is still very much focused on playing songs from Brand New Eyes, and said that the majority of writing for the follow-up — whenever it may happen — will take place at home in Franklin, Tennessee.
"We like coming up with new things, but, like Zac says, it's usually at home, at practice," Williams said. "We usually write intros and outros for shows, and that's a good outlet for us, and a way to keep our creative brains rolling and keep our chops up. But, like he said, it's like two seconds and then we're done."
And Paramore will have even more time to work on those two-second outbursts (maybe even extending them to four or five seconds) when they hit the road on the Honda Civic Tour with Tegan and Sara and New Found Glory. The trek kicks off July 23 and already, Williams and company are getting pumped — even if it means they're not going to be home any time soon.
"We all like a bit of everything, musically, and you can usually tell that in our [concert] bills," Williams said. "I think Honda Civic Tour is the most diverse lineup we've ever had. And I'm really psyched about it. I saw Tegan and Sara in Nashville, and they were great. It's going to be a lot of fun!"
The five best question will be use for the interview.. THANKS GUYS!!!
