Madonna vs. Imagine Dragons

Maddona vs. Imagine Dragons

I thought I was crazy but Ryan G submitted this and confirmed my belief that Imagine Dragons’ “Demons” sounds a bit like Madonna‘s “Like a Prayer”. Maybe it’s more of the vocal cadence. Have a listen:

Imagine Dragons - "Demons" (2012)

Madonna - "Like a Prayer" (1989)

    Demons reminds me of several four chord songs, such as Like Only a Woman Can by Brian McFadden, but while Like Only a Woman Can goes down an octave on the line: “She knows her man”, Demons goes up for “That’s where my demons hide”. Also the verse is reminiscent of The Scientist by Coldplay (2002).

          Excuse me for crediting my sources. I know it may be a sore point with you, but it’s not like I’ve been writing incessantly about it. From now on, reluctantly the information in my comments is coming from anonymous sources.
