'Songs that sound alike' thread

The idea of this topic is to post songs that "unintentionally" sound similar to each other. I'll start:


Soundgarden - Hands All Over(1990)


Pearl Jam - Even Flow(1992)

make total destroy

To be honest, I've always found Pearl Jam and Soundgarden to sound quite similar in general but damn, I didn't realize they sound that much alike.


Anyways, a few years back, Anti-Flag (lol sh*tband) put out this song:



Well, they got quite a lot of sh*t when people realized it sounded exactly like a song that From Ashes Rise had put out a few years earlier:

Those 2 songs took me back a bit. :) Edit; Ninja'd I meant the OP lol



The best band my homeland's ever produced are not above "unintentionally" borrowing melodies:

Charlene - I've never been to me






Belle and Sebastian- Take your Carriage Clock and Shove it.

The Hippie

These two sound similar to me. Really the only ones I could think of right now.

Slightly invert it and you've got this:

Was just listening to these this morning. Not right away, but listen for a minute or so. Maybe it's just me hearing the similarities, though ... and, hell, I wouldn't say it's an outright terrible thing that they sound alike. Besides, I enjoy listening to both songs, so, yeah. (:

This will be a STRANGE comparison, but some of the Polish members know this "artist":

Check the beginning though:

Chorus of Feel Good Inc sounds like melody of the verse from U2's Staring At The Sun

easier to post that


Beat me to it.




This sort of sh*t isn't funny. It's the sort of basic nonsense first year music students gawp at and find brilliant after they learn basic principles of compositional structures.

This sort of sh*t is funny. It's funny because what sells isn't music that takes time to write, it's all functional harmonics in the form of triads, the substitutes of the tonic and subdominant, and every now and then a 'cheeky' secondary dominant. II-V-I? Where have I heard that before? Also, all melodies are either really simple pentatonic based sh*t, or it's all within the comfortable confines of an ionian scale. It's not even good then! It's all just beats and syncopated percussion over the same god-damn chord changes. There's nothing I loathe pop music. Mark Ronson's (feat Bruno Mars) "Uptown Funk" was therefore a fresh breath of air.
