[edit] Coach Z is Billie Jean?

  • Email the movies — Strong Bad sings that "Coach Z is not that cool" to Billie Jean's (a 1982 song by Michael Jackson) tune.

I listened to the intro several times and I can't hear any relationship between the intro and that song. Also, it's not mentioned that the email's page. Any music experts want to weight in? Elcool (talk)(contribs) 21:12, 11 November 2009 (UTC)

It WAS on the Popular Music References, but now it links to this article. Hold on, let me check the revisions and I'll get right back to you. --Homsar Jean 23:03, 16 November 2009 (UTC)
Here, enjoy: a link to a revision, click me. --Homsar Jean 23:07, 16 November 2009 (UTC)
It was actually added here. — Defender1031*Talk 23:10, 16 November 2009 (UTC)
Oh well, you get my point here. But it still made it until this page's creation, didn't it? I believe the contents should be the same unless more should be added... --Homsar Jean 23:12, 16 November 2009 (UTC)
The criterion for whether a fact should be on a page is its validity, not its history. — Defender1031*Talk 23:21, 16 November 2009 (UTC)
There was a brief discussion for the fact when the toon came out can be found at Talk:the movies#Coach Z is not my lover. And Defender, the fact was actually originally added in this revision but then removed about a year later. To reply to Elcool's original query, it's not in the song's intro, it's at about 1m27s here that I hear the similarity, but that's just me. -- Tom 23:57, 16 November 2009 (UTC)
It sounds similar, certainly. Not sure there's enough of a sample for a ref or not. — Defender1031*Talk 00:01, 17 November 2009 (UTC)
"This video is not available in your country due to copyright restrictions." Anyways I found another video. I listened once again, but the only thing I found is a vague similarity in the rhythm, and the "<name> is not" structure. The "here comes an email" part doesn't even hint to the "She's just a girl" line from the song. I think we need an opinion from someone with a more musical background.
