Netizens Want Crowd Lu To Return His Golden Melody Award For 'Your Name Engraved Herein' After Plagiarism Accusations

Taiwanese singer Crowd Lu’s ‘Your Name Engraved Herein’, the Golden Horse Award-winning theme song of the 2020 coming-of-age film of the same name, has been caught up in a whole load of controversy after picking up Song of the Year at the recent Golden Melody Awards.

On Saturday (Aug 28), Taiwanese host Jacky Wu made a very public accusation of plagiarism against the track, saying that it sounds suspiciously similar to an ‘80s song called ‘Reality’ by English singer Richard Sanderson.

Netizens soon chimed in by pointing out that ‘Name’ also bears resemblance to an instrumental ballad called ‘Freedom Hill’ (direct translation) by Chinese pianist JINBAO, getting the song into even deeper trouble.
