A song written by Paul Anka in 1991 for Safire entitled, “This is It” is exactly the same song that was released by Michael Jackson’s recording company. As soon as Paul Anka heard the song, he immediately contacted the record company who released the single.
The record company had no ill-will in the matter and have agreed to give Paul Anka 50% of all proceeds from the sale.
“They realized it’s a mistake. They realized it’s my song, they realized it’s my production of his vocal in my studio, and I’m getting 50 percent, actually, of the whole project, which is fair.”
You could surely tell that it is the same exact song – - listen to Saffire’s version of the song. Slightly a different beat but the lyrics are all the same.
