It’s a classic bout between Spain and Sweden. Will those two ever get along? Listen to the verses on these tracks:
David Tavaré feat. Ruth - "Call Me Baby" (2008)
Alcazar - "Crying at the Discoteque" (2000)

While we’re on Alcazar, Katy Perry feat. Snoop Lion – California Gurls sounds a hellofalot like Alcazar’s This Is The World We Live In which in turn samples Genesis – Land of Confusion.
The current Bruno Mars smash “Locked Out of Heaven” sounds a hell of a lot like “Crying at the Discoteque” in the verses, which other people have noted I’m pleased to say. As well as more obviously several early Police songs which was acknowledged by himself and at the Grammys with Sting.
Message in a Bottle in particular. 😀
They both sampled Londonbeat. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ixBryyQSrD8
Correction: Alcazar sampled that Londonbeat song in “Physical”. 🙂
