Lady Gaga accused of stealing ‘Shallow’ from unknown songwriter



Lady Gaga is being threatened with a multimillion-dollar legal case by an unknown songwriter.
He claims the melody of 'Shallow' was stolen from a song he released in 2012.
Songwriter Steve Ronsen claims just a three-note progression in 'Shallow' is based on his song 'Almost'.
The three notes correspond to the Shallow chorus lyrics, “I’m falling” and “longing for change”.

Gaga’s legal team point out that this progression is common and can be heard in musical pieces dating back centuries.
