Influence

Well, probably not really, but they’re similar enough to make me wonder.

Fat Old Sun (Pink Floyd, 1970) and Clocks (Coldplay, 2002)

The Gold It’s in The… (Pink Floyd, 1972) and Don’t Stop (Fleetwood Mac, 1977)

Kodachrome (Paul Simon, 1973) and Peacekeeper (Fleetwood Mac, 2003)

Heart of Mine (Peter Salett, 2000) and Come Away with Me (Norah Jones, 2002)

Don't know about any of those, but here's one I've noticed: Sexual Healing (Marvin Gaye) and The Further I Slide (Badly Drawn Boy). Good parlor game :-).

There's a song by one of those Shins/Strokes/White Stripes bands that always makes me think it's Iggy Pop's "Lust for Life", but I'm always too irritated fifteen seconds later to figure out what I'm really hearing.

I think I heard Lust for Life being used in a TV spot for a cruise line recently, which was pretty irritating in itself.
