Coldplay called out again for plagarizing? This time, it's Cat Stevens

Viva la Lawsuit! Less than six months ago, guitar icon Joe Satriana filed a claim seeking "any and all profits" for the piano-rock superstars' "Viva la Vida," stating that the Grammy-winning smash contained "substantial original portions" of the track "If I Could Fly," from his 2004 album Is There Love in Space? album. Now, Coldplay may be facing more legal problems -- for the same song.

Legendary bearded folkie Yusuf Islam, a.k.a. The Artist Formerly Known as Cat Stevens, has accused the band of jacking his 18-minute-long 1973 epic "Foreigner Suite" .

Take a listen, shall we? First, the Stevens track (in this excerpt, skip to about the four-minute mark):
