Thanks to Hunter for bringing the Bruno Mars vs. Breakbot comparison to my attention.
It seems that Breakbot had a little something to say about it via twitter:
There are definitely similarities in the chorus as well as the verse:
Bruno Mars - "Treasure (Chorus)" (2012)
Breakbot - "Baby I'm Yours (Chorus)" (2010)
Bruno Mars - "Treasure (Verse)" (2012)
Breakbot - "Baby I'm Yours (Verse)" (2010)
But wait, there’s more! An article I came across points out the similarity of George Duke‘s “Reach Out”:
George Duke - "Reach Out" (1983)
After listening to all of these I really started thinking about Snoop Dogg‘s “Ain’t No Fun” [Explicit Lyric].
Snoop Dogg - "Ain't No Fun (If the Homies Can't Have None)" (1993)
UPDATE: Haasey suggests below that Midnight Star‘s track “Midas Touch” sounds a lot like Breakbot’s. I concur.
Midnight Star - "Midas Touch" (1986)

Breakbot – Baby I’m Yours is too much like Midnight Star – Midas Touch for me.
Awesome. I just added it to the post.
Just crazy how the first verse of both songs virtually overlap one another.
The instrumentals of Treasure (2012) also sounds like Holiday by Madonna (1983).
These sound like every disco track ever made
Ever since I’ve first heard “Uptown Funk”, I can only think of this one Brazilian workout video. The song itself isn’t really similar, but these parts of both songs sound a lot like each other to me:
“Uptown Funk” – 2:55-3:10
“Dança do Quadrado” (released in 2011) – 2:12-2:27
Nice website, by the way!
Christ Almighty, that song sounds more like propoganda for kids to not touch each other than music.
