 Abstract
An essential aspect of music is structure. Beran (2004) introduced a method of comparing piano plays via circular statistics based on the fact that there is circular structure in music. We expand the application of this method to a pair of two pop songs and discuss the possibility of applying it to detecting musical plagiarism. Circular statistics provides an objective view point comparing the musical works.
