Musical coincidences # 380

This is A Tale of Two Coincidences, whereby my friend Steven found a coincidence in a song, and I found another.

First up, the coincidence Steven found.

Steven sent me a message saying that when he listened to the start of an obscure Australian song from 1980, he distinctly heard a bit of Electric Light Orchestra in it.

Moscos & Stone – “Over And Over” (1980) (excerpt)

Electric Light Orchestra – “Eldorado Overture (1974) (excerpt 1)

Yep.

Here are the full versions:

Moscos & Stone – “Over And Over” (1980)

Electric Light Orchestra – “Eldorado Overture (1974)

And now for what I heard.

When I listened all of the “Eldorado Overture” I noticed this:

Electric Light Orchestra – “Eldorado Overture (1974) (excerpt 2)

Link

It took me a while to figure where I’d heard that before, but I eventually figured it out:

Grieg: Piano Concerto in A minor, Op. 16 – first movement (1868) (excerpt)
(Ronan O’Hora, piano; Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by James Judd)

Here’s the full version:

Grieg: Piano Concerto in A minor, Op. 16 – first movement (1868)
(Ronan O’Hora, piano; Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by James Judd)
