Dark Horse ”pingy tone” is more similar to Art of Noise - moments in love imho. That video is great.

R.E.M.’s “So. Central Rain” sounds like a distant cousin of “Don’t Fear the Reaper.”

Ha, yes, the opening riffs - arpeggios around open chords. R.E.M. about 15 BPM faster.

For a long time, I've heard "Reaper" as kinda sounding like "So You Want to Be a Rock and Roll Star."

"Driver 8" sounds like "Don't Fear The Reaper."

hmm, I never noticed that before. I feel like they both must descend from Zouzou's 'Puisque tu es revenu'.

two weeks pass...

l’Arc~En~Ciel "Love Flies" (1999)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cEo9v2pkRMQ
(esp the solo starting at 2m37s onward)

Dinosaur Jr. "Water" (1991)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W3rh8xlm228

I initially was trying to figure out what Built To Spill song I thought the l'Arc song was ripping off but then I realized that it's almost the same chord progression as the Dinosaur song.

On Pavement's "Carrot Rope" (1999) Malkmus sings this little melodic lick on the chorus that goes "explaining that you are worthwhile" that sounds like a direct cop of:

Lilys - "Year Of The Monkey", the part that Kurt sings "I could always look a hypocrite baby... Pay no mind".

Although this could be me exposing my rather embarrassing Beatles/Lennon blind spot... sounds like it could be a Rubber Soul/Revolver nick.

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Saturday, 19 October 2019 04:11 (four months ago) link

Lilys song is from 1994.

The main melodic line of King Crimson's "Talk to the Wind" is a rip-off of Michelle by the Beatles.

the intros of R.E.M.'s "Find the River" and Nick Drake's "Northern Sky"

i'm sure people have noted the similarities between the dukes of stratosphear's 'vanishing girl' and 'the lion sleeps tonight,' but today i was also struck by the fact that the chorus melody bears striking similarity to 'seeing other people' by belle & sebastian

Tom Waits' "Fish & Bird" practically quotes the melody of "Somewhere" from West Side Story (the "There's a place for us" part), which Waits had also recorded earlier.

Randy Rhoads' solo on Quiet Riot's "Slick Black Cadillac" is just the intro to "Love -> Building On Fire"!

Godflesh "Mothra" and Helmet "Rude" are at least similar enough to turn into a medley in my head

"Third of the Storms" Jazz (GOTT PUNCH II HAWKWINDZ), Monday, 16 December 2019 09:17 (two months ago) link

Christmas song 'In Dulci Jubilo' (Mike Oldfield's version) sounds like the children's nursery rhyme 'One Finger, One Thumb, Keep Moving'

DARE by the Gorillaz is just Fantasy by Mariah Carey slowed down
the chorus of Stupid horse sounds really similar to the theme tune of What's new, Scooby doo?
i dont remember what made me think this, but i feel like Never had the balls by Rex Orange County and Hounds Of Love by Kate Bush could mix real easy

The chorus of CCR's "Wrote a Song for Everyone" closely echoes the chorus of "The Weight" in both melody and lyrical structure. So closely that I thought it must be commonly recognized, but I couldn't find any reference to it.

Wrote a song for everyone,
Wrote a song for truth.
Wrote a song for everyone
And I couldn't even talk to you.

Take a load off, Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off, Fanny
And you put the load right on me

Well spotted. I love "Wrote a Song for Everyone" and hate "The Weight" though.

When "Funny Little Frog" by Belle & Sebastian starts I think it's gonna be a version of "Temptation Eyes" by the Grass Roots (other people hear "Death on Two Legs" by Queen)
