This song reminds me of this song and why

This to me sounds like a blatant rip off of Fleetwood Mac's 'The Chain' - am I right, or is it just me

@hingehead,
It wouldn't win a court case for copyright infringement but someone certainly learned some arrangement techniques from L Buckingham.

@panzade,
Yes, that's what it is - the arrangement. Same guitar sound, same minimalist drumbeat, even the harmony action. Thanks Panz. Thank God there was no bass solo/bridge.

I am completely unfamiliar with Elton John's 'Don't Shoot Me I'm Only the Piano Player' album - but this just came up:



Instantly reminded me of this track from 'Goodbye Yellow Brick Road' which I know intimately (one of the first albums I ever owned.

This just came up on random



I think I know where the Stooges got the idea for this:

The opening of Adele's Skyfall has a bit of similarity with the opening of Rihanna's Russian Roulette in both melody and words. Alao, both ladies go from soft to loud when they reach the chorus.

This is the end
Hold your breath and count to ten
Feel the earth move and then
Hear my heart burst again


Take a breath, take it deep
Calm yourself, he says to me
If you play, you play for keeps
Take the gun, and count to three

Ice Ice Baby by Vanilla Ice reminds me of Under pressure by Queen and David Bowie.
Why? - Melody playing in the background of "Ice Ice Baby" is the same as the melody in "Under Pressure."

I use that bass solo to check out my bass amp settings before every show; brilliant guy that McVie.

Never realised before that Groove Armada's 'At The River'

Is pretty much a riff on Patti Page's 'Old Cape Cod' mostly because I'd never heard the Patti Page track before - thank you shuffle.

Can't be funky by the Bush Tetra's just popped up (first time i've ever heard it)


The drum intro made me think it was going to be this



Do you think an indigenous Central Australian band were into the New York No Wave scene?

Blues Magoos (Aint Got) Nothin' Yet



Three years later Deep Purple Black Night

This started out as 'that sounds like' but I think it's actually a reverse cover.

This came up on random, from Australia's Masters Apprentices - 60s legends that never quite got past cult overseas.



I thought - that sounds like the last track of Nirvana unplugged.



What I found interesting was that the Masters Apprentices call it 'Black Girl (In The Pines)' but Nirvana call it 'Where did you sleep last night?' Read more about it's history overhere on the 'uncovered' thread.

I heard one today that I've known for yonks - and it's probably just me but....


Whenever I hear the fade out of The Moody Blues 'The Voyage' (starts about 2:10)



I hear the lyric 'lipstick licks, get your kicks at sixty six, miniskirt waddle' from Elvis Costello's 'Chelsea' (about 20seconds in):

I'm hoping that you can explain to me why when this song started:



I thought is was going to be this song:



When I listen to them next to each other they don't sound that much alike at the intro but there is something similar.

@boomerang,
I can hear it Boomer

Weird how many people list both songs in playlists

I thought during the guitar intro to this



It was going to be a poor cover of this



But they're nothing alike.

I just heard this for the first time, and then the Melissa Manchester version too.



It's bizarre but it really reminds me of the below toon, in theme, arrangement and chorus hook. Really quite odd - and both must have been written at almost the same time so it's hard to know if anyone is ripping off anyone.
