Musical coincidences # 214

Courtesy of living with a young person (i.e., daughter Natalie – Hi, Natalie!), I’ve become extremely familiar with a few teen television sitcoms.

(Incidentally, they’re all American. It appears that Australia is not willing to make laughter-riddled comedies featuring gaudily dressed teenagers. Or maybe Australia has never needed to because there are so many American ones.)

One of these teen comedies is Victorious, a sitcom about teenagers attending Hollywood Arts High School. According to the show, they’re all tremendously talented.

The theme tune – which I’ve now heard approximately 1,179 times – has a chorus that contains this:

Victoria Justice – “Make It Shine (2010) (excerpt)

And Australian singer Guy Sebastian‘s latest single has a chorus that contains this:

Guy Sebastian – “Don’t Worry Be Happy (2011) (excerpt)
