songs that remind you of other songs
 
fugazi - sieve fisted find has this bass part (in the "please let me get my hands on it" part) that reminds me of kool thing
toadies - tyler / pixies - where is my mind
interpol - say hello the angels / the smiths - this charming man
every other interpol song / joy divison - shadow play


I know I'm forgetting some, but I ALWAYS hear songs that sound like, or at least remind me of, other songs in some part... hmm.

Wow, they are very similar.
Also counting backwards by Throwing Muses has a very similar lead guitar part to Where is my mind, and also a song called "Oh yeah" by a shitty australian band called End of Fashion, shares the same rhythm guitar part, with one minor difference. Seriously, it's strummed the same way

nice. that's hilarious.

lots of pixies ripping off.

one i forgot to mention is "medium is the message" by mclusky.. haven't listened to it in a while but i remember the bass line being identical to a pixies song..

and more obvious:
offspring - self esteem chorus riff / nirvana - smells like teen spirit
elastica - connection / wire - ex lion tamer

Two huge rip-offs by French bands:

Kaolin - Partons vite / Bob Dylan - I want you
Cookie Dingler - Femme libérée / Iggy Pop - The passenger

There's a short bit on Charles Mingus' Black Saint ... LP that I always think sounds like the theme tune from Neighbours. I'm not trying to be clever here, I just really think that it does.

smells like teen spirit / boston's more than a feeling (chorus riff)

pavement's silent kit / lynyrd skynyrd's tuesday's gone (the "hand me the drumstick..." bit)...also the main part reminds me of a television song, although i'm not sure which.

pavement's stop breathing (last part) / sonic youth's she's in a bad mood (last part)

HECKLER SPRAY 05.18.2007 09:28 AM

Queen of the Stone Age : First it giveth bass line / Sonic Youth : Mildred Pierce bass line
Exactly the same.

i see your mildred pierce and raise you a tsol - sounds of laughter, listen to the bass riff in there, not to mention it was done way before any of those.

Just noticed that:

Black Flag - Black coffe / Metallica - Disposable heroes ("back to the front" part)

king_buzzo 05.19.2007 05:14 AM

Nirvana-Come As You Are sounds a lot like Killing Joke-Eighties, the riff, I mean...

pbradley 05.19.2007 05:27 AM

not really a song but the majority of The Swirliees' Blonder Tongue Audio Baton reminds me of My Bloody Valentine's Isn't Anything
