This song reminds me of this song and why

This came up on shuffle
Come and Go Blues - Allman Brothers


The intro instantly made me think it was the first bridge in Billy The Kid - Billy Joel (around the 50 second mark):



Both released the same year - did someone hear someone else's recording session or is it just a zeitgeist thing?

I'm too young to know but was the Bobby Darin number Clementine


A thinly veiled attempt to jump on his own bandwagon? Sounds just like the last section of his version of 'Mack The Knife' to me, all the way down to his faux Sinatra vocal scatting.

My God I hope all the royalties for this song went to The Zombies

I didn't know this song particularly well but i just came up on random



And I kept waiting for it to break into this song's chorus




Similar tempo and feel I guess - but different chord progression. Beats me what it is.

Ok, obscure but...

At about 2:10 and 3:20 this Blur track

Appears to reference this classic (with that sort of theremin sliding up and down an octave and a half sound)

This just came up on random (I've never heard it before)



I thought it was a bad cover of Lennon's 'Jealous Guy'. Surprised that
a) It isn't
b) It charted

The intro to this made me think it was going to be a cover of Split Enz' "Six Months In A Leaky Boat" - it's just that weird little synth arpeggio.



Weirdly that arpeggio isn't in the introduction to the Enz track

This is pretty blatantly stealing from Jesus Christ Superstar's 'Everything's Alright' and some how sticking Auld Lang Syne in as well.


The BBC are reshowing old Top Of The Pops, for some inexplicable reason this topped the charts for a number of weeks at the beginning of 1982. It really does sound like Auld Lang Syne.

THis just came up on random - never heard it before



It is ripping of the verse riff from this isn't it?

I'm guessing Salt N Pepa listened to this


Before they came up with this

I was listening to the Doors LA Woman in the car today, maybe it's just my brain, but the beginning of this.


really reminded me of this.

Burning - The War on Drugs


Band's a sleepier, mumblier amalgam of a lot of 80s rock bands imo; Dire Straits, Rod Stewart, Bruce Springsteen, etc...

Young Turks - Rod Stewart


I'm on Fire - Bruce Springsteen

@hingehead,
That's a relief, for a moment I thought I might be going mad.

I was just listening to the adagio of Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No.2 and thought "Hey - he's ripping of Eric Carmen's 'All By Myself'."

I did a web hunt for the obligatory youtube video and found that i'm not the only one to have heard this - and a least one friendly person has done the mashup to prove it.

This one (Everybody's World by The Grays) massively echoes BadFingers 'Day After Day'
Get to the one minute mark of the drawn out intro to hear the guitar line and verse melody to hear what I mean.
