Bruno Mars vs. Breakbot vs. Snoop Dogg vs. George Duke

Thanks to Hunter for bringing the Bruno Mars vs. Breakbot comparison to my attention.

It seems that Breakbot had a little something to say about it via twitter:

@BrunoMars  ! seriously ? Haha great now i've got all the bruno fans mad at me ! this is serious, they might throw their hats at me.

There are definitely similarities in the chorus as well as the verse:

Chorus

Bruno Mars - "Treasure (Chorus)" (2012)

Breakbot - "Baby I'm Yours (Chorus)" (2010)

Verse

Bruno Mars - "Treasure (Verse)" (2012)

Breakbot - "Baby I'm Yours (Verse)" (2010)

But wait, there’s more! An article I came across points out the similarity of George Duke‘s “Reach Out”:

George Duke - "Reach Out" (1983)

After listening to all of these I really started thinking about Snoop Dogg‘s “Ain’t No Fun” [Explicit Lyric].

Snoop Dogg - "Ain't No Fun (If the Homies Can't Have None)" (1993)

UPDATE: Haasey suggests below that Midnight Star‘s track “Midas Touch” sounds a lot like Breakbot’s. I concur.

Midnight Star - "Midas Touch" (1986)

    Ever since I’ve first heard “Uptown Funk”, I can only think of this one Brazilian workout video. The song itself isn’t really similar, but these parts of both songs sound a lot like each other to me:

    “Uptown Funk” – 2:55-3:10

    “Dança do Quadrado” (released in 2011) – 2:12-2:27

    Nice website, by the way!
