Checked the SoundsJustLike email today and found piles & piles of awesome suggestions from all of you. Thanks! I chased down most of the leads & have a long list of posts to push out this summer.
Here’s the first one pointed out by a reader: An odd similarity between a French DJ and a British pop singer. I say odd because my gut says that the Coldplay track “Clocks” is the newer of these two songs. My gut is wrong. “When Love Takes Over” was recorded in 2008-2009 in Paris, six years after the Coldplay tune.
The intros are the most obviously similar part of these two songs. Have a listen.
