"Look What You've Done" is the third single (fourth in the US) by the Australian rock band Jet, from their 2003 album Get Born.

History[edit]

The single was released in 2004 worldwide, and in 2005 in the US (#37).

The single is their highest charting single in Australia peaking at 14 on the ARIA Singles Chart. It was also a hit in Latin America, where it was played several times in radio and television, making it the biggest Jet hit there. The song was ranked #24 on Triple J's Hottest 100 of 2004.

It was included in the soundtrack of the 2005 romantic drama A Lot Like Love, starring Ashton Kutcher and Amanda Peet.

Criticism[edit]

The song received criticism due to distinct similarities to both The Beatles' "Sexy Sadie" and John Lennon's "Imagine". The lyrics & melody of the song's refrain ("look what you've done/ you've made a fool of everyone") strongly echoed those of "Sexy Sadie" ("what have you done?/ you made a fool of everyone"), while the song's arrangement & piano line bore marked similarities to "Imagine". The song has also been cited for similarities to "Home Sweet Home" by Mötley Crüe, as well as "Don't Look Back in Anger" by Oasis (itself cited for similarities to Lennon's "Imagine").[1][2]

Music videos[edit]

Two music videos were made for the song: One was of the band playing in a land with animated creatures; the other video had band members playing in a white room, surrounded by photos of themselves.
