Similar or not? Clash over independence referendum theme tunes

Opposing campaigns in the Scottish independence referendum appear to have chosen the same Big Country song One Great Thing to launch their campaigns.

A spokesperson for Yes Scotland, which is urging Scots to vote for independence in the forthcoming referendum, said: "With an agreement in place, artists commissioned by Yes Scotland recorded a cover version."

However, a spokesman for the Better Together campaign said "it is categorically not the same tune" as One great Thing.

He added that it was a new track called Down Under by Scottish DJ/Producer Munroso which "neither samples, nor uses, nor is inspired by Big Country."

Here is a a sample of the two tunes together.
