I was curious about this one because Avicii‘s “Wake Me Up” is such a huge hit. I definitely hear the similarity in Sandé‘s vocal line. Then I noticed a YouTube comment that pointed to Toto‘s 1979 track. Check ‘em out!
Avicii - "Wake Me Up" (2013)
Emeli Sandé - "Next To Me" (2012)
Toto - "St. George and the Dragon" (1979)
Back in 2011 Avicii took X Factor star Leona Lewis to court. Anyone know what happened with this?

This latest submission by Kirb takes us back to one of the first posts on ThatSongSoundsLike (The Rolling Stones vs. Yacht) in 2007. My friend Alex played Yacht‘s “See a Penny (Pick it Up)” and I also immediately heard “Miss You” by the Stones. Fast forward to 2014 and we have Ed Sheeran and his track “Sing” (co-written and produced by Pharrell Williams). Check out the chorus of “Sing” along with these others tracks:
Ed Sheeran - "Sing" (2014)
Yacht - "See a Penny (Pick it Up)" (2007)
The Rolling Stones - "Miss You" (1978)

I was kicking back listening to some Arthur Lyman the other day and noticed the main riff in “Jungle Fantasy” sounded a lot like the theme to Sex and the City. Pretty close right??

Jawbreaker is one of my all time favorite bands. Granted the four chord punk riff simplicity of the “Boxcar” (1994) verse is nothing mind blowingly original. But check out Green Day‘s “She’s a Rebel” (2004) and the similarity is unmistakable.

This is not the first time Green Day has appeared on this site. Check some of these other posts:

Katy Perry, Dr. Luke, Flame. Sorry I’m getting lazy with the Katy Perry and Dr. Luke images. I can just pull them up every other week when they appear on the site.

Looks like Katy Perry and Dr. Luke (Lukasz Sebastian “Luke” Gottwald) are at it again. According to Rapzilla.com on July 1, 2014 Christian rapper Flame and others filed a lawsuit against Perry, Capitol Records, and Perry’s co-writers for infringing copyright on the song “Joyful Noise”. One of the co-writers here is Dr. Luke who has made many appearances on this site.
Check it out:
Katy Perry - "Dark Horse" (2013)
Flame - "Joyful Noise" (2008)
