All By Myself vs. Help!


Recommended Posts

First, as a new forum member I'm reluctant to ask a bunch of questions that have been discussed to death years ago. Having participated in other forums, I know that can get annoying. However, I've had limited luck with the search feature.

Has Eric Carmen ever discussed the similarity in the lyrics of All By Myself to Help? The similarities seem too striking to be coincidental:

ABM: "When I was young I never needed anyone"

Help: "When I was young...I never needed any help.."

ABM: "..those days are gone"

Help: "But now those days are gone..."

ABM: "..sometimes I feel so insecure..."

Help: "..every now and then I feel so insecure..."

Intentional "homage" or no?
