Similar Bits: Giraffe + Genesis: TIRED OLD MAN/PUPPET SUITE + RIPPLES

I love Tired Old Man/The Puppet Suite; The 3 or 4 variations from Kevin Gilbert and Giraffe (and NRG?), but I CANNOT DENY how the intro/theme/melody is more or less borrowing from the Genesis tune RIPPLES.

I bet Kevin Gilbert himself would in no way argue or deny this.

It just kind of bugs me.

And I love RIPPLES of course, especially the Annie Haslam cover.

Also the song "Undertow" I hear some, but not as many similarities in TOM/PS from Kevin/Giraffe
