    Hear what the media generated controversy is all about. Someone lined Sam Smith's "Stay With Me" up with Tom Petty's "I Won't Back Down." For the record, the only drama over royalties has been in the comments of this Youtube video. Petty released this statement after the media took this case to the only court that matters: public opinion, "About the Sam Smith thing. Let me say I have never had any hard feelings toward Sam. All my years of songwriting have shown me these things can happen. Most times you catch it before it gets out the studio door but in this case it got by. Sam's people were very understanding of our predicament and we easily came to an agreement. The word lawsuit was never even said and was never my intention. And no more was to be said about it. How it got out to the press is beyond Sam or myself. Sam did the right thing and I have thought no more about this. A musical accident no more no less. In these times we live in this is hardly news. I wish Sam all the best for his ongoing career. Peace and love to all."

    What a nice dude, listen to the songs side by side and insert your loud and opinionated voice in our comments below:
