not really all that similar different beats and everything
Hahaha the beat/rhythm is the most similar part!
Hey Jon – I agree, the beats are different. It’s the background vocal melody that stood out to me. And, even though the beats are different, they share a common vibe IMO.
Jon, are you kidding me?
sounds like a ripoff. nice catch.
Haha i thought this the second i first heard the Some Nights. Nonetheless i love them both!
I agree with you Josh. Heard this on the radio and immediately thought it sounded like S&G.
sauce of the V
V dizzle to the sizzle
hah, if you click back and forth between the two songs, they match up perfectly, even more so than other ones here,
Also, thanks Vsauce!
Guess where I’m coming from.

V Sauce !!!!
This is the most ridiculous one.
I disagree. A lot.
Vsauce is amazing!
i prefer Some Nights
I’m SO GLAD that I’m not the only one who thought of this!
It was driving me NUTS! I kept saying, “I know this song!” Now I can literally have people HEAR the similarity.
Brace yourself Vsauce comment are comming!
These songs are alarmingly similar, more so than others on this site. Also, like many other people, VSAUCE linked me!
vsauce brought me here
If it is a good song, someone needs to sing it again, since it has been forgotten! I don’t blame the singers
Vsause is like the best thing ever!!! THANK U MICHAEL!
Vsauce got me here. And I hope to get BeeFM here, too…
Vsauce, very smart, again. Thank you for the link. And wow….that 4chords link was a gem as well.
I let my friend listen to them both. After she heard Cecilia, she gasped “HEY, They ripped-off F.U.N!” I then showed her the release dates and the cover arts above and she quickly tried to back-peddle her way out of an argument.
My name is Cecelia and my parents had a friend that would always sing “Cecilia” by S & G to me. My time spent with that person was not very fun.
Glad you guys like it!!
You are the Bomb
wow a lot of people watch vsauce
Thanks for Watching.. ^_^
this is exactly what i thought when i listened to the song. oh yeah and i’m from vsauce!
you fucking hipsters need to calm down ok
This is seriously noticeable. I asked my friend and she too thought Some Nights was Cecilia the first time she heard it.
Yeeeah Buddy !! VSAUCE !!
Vsauce brought me here!
The Offspring’s “Turning into you”, Sounds like Rise Against’s “Ready To Fall”.
The show goes on by loupe fiasco and float on by modest mouse are almost exactly the same it’s crazy being 2 different genres. Give them a listen
When i heard this song Some Nights by FUN on the radio I KNEW I heard this song somewhere!
no what else sounds like Simon and Garfunkel? every Belle and Sebastian song ever.
OMY GOD WOW
Also from Vsauce, but I KNEW “Some Nights” sounded familiar so I’m glad to hear my suspicious validated. If modern music keeps referencing some of my favorite old artists, I am going to be very happy.
not enough? :>
Fefe Dobson – Stuttering sounds like Kelly Clarkson – Behind These Hazel Eyes
thanks vsauce aka bearded nun
Vsauce..yeah everybody i think is here because him ^^
I’m pretty sure this one was intentional.
>__> … <___< … VSAUCE!!! THANKS!
I already thought this XD
Who’s here because of Vsauce btw thanks Vsause!
thank you vsauce!
FUN totally ripped off Simon and Garfunkel
Now I’m aware of two good songs. Thank you, soundsjustlike.
Hey Vsauce Michael here. Its nice to know that all of you actually bothered to check these out. And as always, thanks for watching.
OMFG I CAME HERE FRUM VSAUCE TOO BUT OMG SO. MANY. COMMENTS. ABOUT. VASAUCE. JUST. SAYING. Vsauce! Or Vsauce brough me here! And absolutely NOTHING about what the songs sound like. o_o
Wow! Once again we find modern music owes SO MUCH to the innovators of the past. It is very similar not exactly but it is certainly close, just not as close as Ice Ice Baby to Under Pressure. I think bands are learning they have to tweak more than one beat.. But DAMN! Fun better give credit where credit is due for the sample because this shit just spreads ignorance and it pissing me me off. Though not as bad Qwote stealing from Brenda Russell.
Totally different harmonies and drum beats. I tend to disagree.
Vsauce, too xD
RFM brought me here, also Vsauce.
Some Nights was written in 2012 with We Are Young as its teaser. Please fix this asap.
As a DJ, I’m gonna have fun with this website. Thanks Vsauce.
guess im not the only one who found this resemblance.
i have to say i find the simon and funkle guys song better…
VSAUCE THANK YOU
Can’t unsee: Garfunkel’s epic mustache
Pingback: COLBIE CAILLAT SAYS NEW ALBUM INSPIRED BY fun. AND THE LUMINEERS — MIX 101.1 FM
OK anyone else who heard of this from Vsauce and went ahead looking for it after myself, say Vsauce
Vsauce is amazing.
who is vsauce?
Just joking. Thanks Vsauce!
Heard Some Nights in the car last night….the Cecilia part is definitely the best part of the whole song…took me a minute or two to identify the vaguely uneasy feeling I had that I’d heard it all before….Wish S and G could get some money or credit out of this….Nothing new under the sun…
This won’t play!
Some nights actually sounds like Cecillia played backwards to me… Also thanks Vsauce!
VSauce brought me here.
Simon and Garfunkel are the best ever and I love Fun too! But when I heard some nights, I said to my brother: “Scott I’ve heard this before, years ago…”
and he replied with:
“Zoe, this song came out last week….”
And now I know what it is.
Thank you Vsauce! you’re awesome!
