The Rolling Stones vs. The Specials vs. The Dandy Warhols

Here’s a great submission from Joshua.

Check out the similar bluesy riffs in all three of these classic hits. First the 1971 The Rolling Stones song “Brown Sugar”, followed by 1979 English ska group The Specials “Little Bitch” and later the 2001 Dandy Warhols track “Bohemian Like You”

The Rolling Stones - "Brown Sugar" (1971)

The Specials - "Little Bitch" (1979)

The Dandy Warhol - "Bohemian Like You" (2000)

    “Bohemian Like You” sounds a HECK of a lot like Kiss’s “Strutter,” which you didn’t put here.

    You can also add Superhuman by Velvet Revolver (2004).

    And Sweet Lady by Queen (1975). For more Queen similarities: Blurred Lines also sounds like Staying Power by Queen (1982), Save Me (1980) sounds kind of like The Great Pretender, which we know Freddie Mercury covered and It’s a Hard Life (19sounds like a combination of The Great Pretender, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and The First Noel (I may be crazy, but that’s how it sounds to me).

    Sorry, that was a little unfinished, it’s meant to say It’s a Hard Life (1984) sounds like a combination of The Great Pretender, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and The First Noel.

    The chorus of Save Me sounds kind of like La Marseillaise.
