Musical coincidences # 99

Today’s coincidence comes yet again from one of Mr. Fabulous‘s suggestions.

Australian 80’s rock band Uncanny X-Men released their first single, “Pakistan”, in 1982. The melody in the verse starts off like this:

Uncanny X-Men – “Pakistan” (1982) (excerpt)

I have a feeling that whoever wrote that song may have heard this at some time when they were a kiddy:

The Monkees – “A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You (1967) (excerpt)

Thanks for pointing that out, Mr. Fabulous. I would probably have never known otherwise.

Here are the full versions:
