Guns N’ Roses vs. Adam and the Ants

Wow!  You don’t have to listen hard to hear this one. The chugging intro of “Mr. Brownstone” (1987) sounds a bit too much like the intro of Adam and the Ant’s 1980 track “Making History”. Check it out!

Guns N' Roses - "Mr. Brownstone" (1987)
Adam and the Ants - "Making History" (1980)

Alessia Cara vs. Cirque du Soleil

Submitted by Darryl

Sounds like this Cirque du Soleil song might have borrowed a melody from Cara’s hit “Here”. What do you think??

Alessia Cara - "Here" (2015)
Cirque du Soleil - "Pambolero" (2016)

Sia “Cheap Thrills” sounds like Toto “Africa”

Submitted by David

Sia has been killing it. Her songs are great and her videos are super original. I was certainly curious when David sent this comparison in and I definitely heard the musical similarity in Toto‘s 1982 “Africa” as well. Have a listen to Sia’s “Cheap Thrills” with this classic from Toto. Just focus your ears on the chord progression:

SIA - "Cheap Thrills" (2016)

Toto - "Africa" (1982)
