    @Marcos Really? I noticed straight away. The fireworks song is a sped up version. Probably a coincidence of course but one says ‘Light’ and the other says ‘Night. So even the rhymes similar.

    Doubt it’s coincidence. Robot Unicorn Attack is one of the most popular things on the net.

    A melody from Erasure “Always” got nicked for the pre-chorus of “Firework”–the line with “there will be no shame”.

    Not knocking her BTW. Whoever wrote “Firework” smartly appropriated a popular cult earworm and married it to a big pop star hook.

    One Direction’s Save You Tonight also has a similar tune to Erasure’s always.

    There’s a part of John Legend – All Of Me which sounds like Firework and another part which sounds like Aerosmith – I Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing

    It’s been said that Maroon 5’s current smash “Sugar” sounds like Katy Perry’s Last Friday Night (and also Birthday). No prizes for guessing who the songwriter was.
