Do you have examples of songs that reminds you of other songs? Well, whatcha waitin fer pudnuh? Do share. :)

But pleaaaaaase, do not post anything Led Zeppelin here. Any true LZ fan knows "Dazed And Confused" is not "sneaky" theft, it was actually "uncreditted cover", for a long time.

Same for all the other supposedly "stolen" songs that LZ is "guilty" of.
Uncreditted covers is what those were. Yup, uh huh. It's obvious, mmmmmkay? The "uncreditted covers" weren't even disguised nor greatly altered.

But the examples below, they are not covers but maybe they are the ones that should be grounds for suedment? Leave Led Zeppelin alone. This guy too knows that one must come to the defense of one's idol(s).

Okay so, here's Elastica's Connection and Romeo Void's Never Say Never.
Is it theft or inspiration? Or something else? Or are my ears totally useless?
I'm just going by "this song reminds me of that other song".

This is at the margins of what qualifies as music, but the "Lanx" ringtone on my phone reminds me a lot of "Europe Endless" by Kraftwerk. I suspect the similarity is intentional.

Ringtone for our video conferencing software sounds just like "Such Great Heights" by the postal service.
Even if the piano player can't play, keep the party going.

police (1980)

the outfield (1985)

I'm sure a part in the Carter USM song Sheriff Fatman @0.55 reminds me of Denis by Blondie @ 1.45.

Also, like you, I've mistaken some songs as another artist.

when I first heard this, it was playing on my sister's stereo system and I thought "aarrghh, it's that Barbra Streisand again".

Been bugging me for a long time;

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yWLorxdRxRg

I think..
That is a mash up of at least two 80s tracks that I dont quite know..
Various bits of that are so familiar..
MJ? Prince?
I cant get it.

The music (not vocals) is basically a pitched down version of Hendrix's All Along The Watchtower done in a Fleetwood Mac style.
