Britney Spears vs. Jermaine Jackson vs. Cutting Crew vs. Survivor

Thanks to Lennart for submitting the Jermaine Jacksons track

The chorus of  Jermaine Jackson‘s “When the Rain Begins to Fall” is strangely familiar to Britney Spears‘ 2011 track “Hold it Against Me”. When I first heard this track I also thought about Survivor’s “Can’t Hold Back” (1984) [who appear previously on ThatSongSoundsLike] and Cutting Crew‘s 1986 hit “(I Just) Died in Your Arms”. It won’t be much of a surprise that this Spears track was produced by none other than Dr. Luke who has made numerous appearances on this site.

    I would also classify all the above, except for “(I Just) Died in Your Arms” , to be the same melody as the CatrianiPlay group.
