U2 Accused Of Ripping Off An Artist For A Song On ‘Achtung Baby’

Paul Rose is a singer-songwriter based out of the UK who says he submitted a demo toU2 back in the late 1980’s, and would later hear a song resembling his on U2’s 1991 album ‘Achtung Baby’.
 
He is now suing the band for upwards of 5 million dollars. No one from the U2 camp has responded to the claims yet.
 
I’ll leave you to be the judge of it. Here are both songs. What do you think?
