Ah-rested on Charges of Stealing Intros

I didn't know this Dwayne Eddy song until tonight, when I heard "The Quarrymen" do it in a corny John Lennon biopic.  The beginning sounds like a modified intro to Chuck's "Brown Eyed Handsome Man."

(Here's Chuck.)

And here are the Beach Boys, who ripped off both, modifying the stolen intro and tacking it to the stolen melody of "Sweet Little Sixteen!"

But lest we get too self righteous, let us remember what came before Chuck, Dwayne or Brian.
