Wallhogs partnered with Gwen Stefani and we built out this rocking page for her custom wall prints. I purchased her new album from iTunes a while back, but recently I stumbled upon something rather interesting about the intro to one of her new songs “The Sweet Escape.” I listened to the song and it reminded me of a German song that came out in 1986. The name of the German song is “Sweet Sweet Gwendoline” by Die Ã„rzte. This is just a crazy coincidence, right? The Sweet Escape and Sweet Gwendoline?
Listen to the first 10 seconds of this song and compare them to the following video of Gwen Stefani. I am by no means a musical savant so I thought I would pose my theory to the group. Do you think Gwen or her helpers took inspiration from Die Ã„rzte? I think these intros are VERY similar. Perhaps they searched for “Sweet Gwen” and came up with the German song and used it as a launchpad? Am I crazy? Please post a comment with what you think! Did Gwen steal the intro to her hit song?

Oh, and no matter what you should buy a Gwen Stefani Wallhog!
