Jim, Cory and Johanna all submitted this comparison so I definitely had to post it.
Check out American Idol contestant Elliott Yamin‘s “Wait For You” (2007) and commercial pop group S Club‘s “Never Had a Dream Come True”. It’s a battle of the TV stars. I get the feeling there are a few other pop songs out there with this similar melody.
Elliott Yamin - "Wait For You (Intro)" (2007)
S Club - "Never Had a Dream Come True (Intro)" (2000)
Elliott Yamin - "Wait For You (Chorus)" (2007)
S Club - "Never Had a Dream Come True (Chorus)" (2000)

yes thank you for posting this one
its actually s club 7 not just s club
According to the wikipedia page there were “formerly S Club 7”.
Travis was right. I grew up in the UK where S Club 7/S Club were geared towards my age group, and also got to experience the terrible S Club Juniors spinoff band.
They were S Club 7 when Never Had A Dream Come True was released as a Children in Need single in 2000, and turned into S Club once one band member left in 2002.
Fun fact: The highlight of my 2001 was learning that my school – one of many – had been selected to be in their 2001 Children in Need single, Have You Ever. To this day I still know all the words off by heart.
friend gave this comparison to me…im not sure what to think of it
aqua: barbie girl
leann rimes: cant fight the moonlight
Sounds pretty good to me. I think your friend is right. Thanks for sending me this. Now I’m going to have the “Barbie Girl” chorus stuck in my head all day.
this one is buggin me
shinedown:call me(2008 i think)
tracy chapman:fast car
and this part i swear is something from chicago..but cant figure it out
The intro reminds me of NSYNC’s Tearin’ Up My Heart intro.
For some reason though, I can’t shake the feeling that there is another that sounds exactly like this.
That was some solid 90s entertainment right there.
Another song that sounds similar.
It does have that similar 4 or 5 note run at the beginning of the phrase.
heres another one that was given to me..not real sure what to think of this one either..other than you could easily use the chorus of 1 for the other with ease.
anthony smith: john j blanchard
tim mcgraw: live like you were dying
keane: everybody’s changing
papa roach: lifeline
Both of these song sound familiar to another song but I can’t quite put my finger on it…It might be a Simple Plan song…
Lord Creator: Kingston town
Paris Hilton: Stars are blind
In June 2007 the copyright holders of the 1970 song “Kingston Town”, Sparta Florida Music Group, started legal action against Hilton and Warner Chappell Music for plagiarism due to alleged similarities between “Stars Are Blind” and “Kingston Town”. It has wrongly been ascribed that UB40 was the suing party, but that has been denied by the band themselves on their website.
Here’s the more known version by UB40
UB40: Kingston town
I’m christian and I’ve been hearing this gospel song for a long time. I always knew it sounded like something else I had already heard, but didn’t know exactly what. Now I’ve found it. Check this spanish gospel song chorus (Dulce refugio by Danilo Montero http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NsWGrrnIayM) and tell me if it’s not just the same!!!
Chorus exactly starts at 1:15
Doesn’t Elliot Yamin song also sound like some parts of All I have to give by Backstreet Boys? Sounds very familiar to me. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pj6FCKm8dhM
They both reminded me of part of the “Chariots of Fire” theme song (just after 1:10): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xEF4zH6XHCk but more minor-sounding…
Both of these songs are ripping off “We’re Not Making Love No More” by Dru Hill, 1997.
Check it out.
Something here reminds me of Janet Jackson, (Never Fall in Love with you) Again
This also sounds like the verses in “Save the Best for Last” by Vanessa Williams.
Dru Hill – We’re Not Making Love (1997)
There’s another one that’s been done in the last 7 years. Arg!
