The similarity is obvious the second Vanessa Carlton‘s new single “Carousel” (2011) starts. The piano and vocal melody sounds a lot like the chorus of Cyndi Lauper‘s 1986 hit “True Colors”.
According to a tweet by Carlton on 4/3/2011 “Carousel” was “…A tune [she] woke up singing”.

I love Vanessa Carlton, she reminds me alot of Madi Diaz. check out this song “Lets Go” http://www.ifc.com/news/2011/08/exclusive-premiere-madi-diaz-l.php
If she woke up singing that tune, she probably went to sleep listening to Cyndi Lauper.
I can’t hear any similarity here, at all. The same chords that’s about it!
definitely was thinking of true colors..could of been accidental though
Yup! Well, in the songwriting process it is simply impossible to tune out things you have heard in your life. It’s only natural.

Both of these clips also sound like the chorus of Avici’s “The Days”
