February 1, 2011

Now, I’ll be the first to admit that this coincidence may not be particularly strong, but… I noticed it, so here it is.

First up, here’s Australian band British India with a part of the chorus of one of their songs from last year:

British India – “Vanilla” (2010) (excerpt)

I don’t know if that melody sounds familiar to you, but it sounds familiar to me. It sounds like the main melody in the chorus of:

P.P. Arnold – “The First Cut Is The Deepest (1967) (excerpt)

Here are the full versions:

British India – “Vanilla” (2010)
