What songs do you want to hear for today's coffee break? (MPR Graphic / Tracy Kompelien)

Rolling Stone broke the news that a lawyer representing deceased Spirit guitarist Randy California is claiming the hard-rock legends Led Zeppelin stole the intro for their 1971 single "Stairway to Heaven" from Spirit's 1968 song "Taurus." The story reminded us of a lot of other songs/artists who have been accused of plagiarizing a song.

For today's Coffee Break, let's put together a list of artists that have been accused of plagiarism. Who should we play this morning?

Songs Played:

George Harrison "My Sweet Lord"

The Flaming Lips "Fight Test"

Johnny Cash "Folsom Prison Blues"
