Yesterday I mentioned Jonathan Richman's Egyptian Reggae. There are those who say Egyptian Reggae was a rip off of Johnny Clarke's None Shall Escape The Judgment (or judgement). It has the same riff, but is 84% less danceable.
What say you?
My own feeling is that "di di bop, di di bop, di di di di di di bop" has signified "Egyptian" for a hundred years or more - though I don't know the origin of the musical phrase.
