Song: "Little Things"
Release Date: May, 1995
From the Album: Sixteen Stone (1994)
Quick Take: "Little Things" is a song from rock band Bush released from their successful 1994 album, Sixteen Stone. Although it was a big hit, it did not reach the heights of "Glycerine," "Comedown," or "Swallowed." The Bulgarian group D2 used the guitar riff used in the song in their 1999 breakthrough hit "I Can't Stop Loving You" ("Ne Moga Da Spra Da Te Obicham"). The song's riff is also very similar to that of The Offspring song "Self Esteem". It is unknown who ripped off who because both songs were released around the same time. Although "Self Esteem" was released as a single (December 1994) six months before "Little Things" was, "Little Things" was also released in December 1994, but on the band's debut album, however "Self Esteem" was recorded in 1993 while "Little Things" was recorded in 1994.
