Musical coincidences # 233

I recently watched (and semi-enjoyed) a documentary on the making of Simon & Garfunkel’s Bridge Over Troubled Water album. When they got to The Song, I thought to myself “Hey, the ending of that sounds like the ending of ‘Life On Mars?‘”.

Now that I’ve heard them side-by-side, I don’t think they’re as close as I had thought they were. But I reckon they’re close enough for me to shout “Coincidence!”
