Musical coincidences # 187

March 3, 2012

Today’s coincidence comes to you courtesy of blogger Jack Feerique (Hi, Jack!) over at the Popdose blog. A recent post there is part of a series called “Digging for Gold: The Time-Life “AM Gold” Series“. The series features five songs per post, with a resident panel of bloggers offering their comments about each song. The most recent instalment (Part 34) contains “I Think I Love You” by The Partridge Family, and Jack’s first comment on the song was this:

I knew I’d heard this somewhere before.

And this is what he was referring to:

The Partridge Family – “I Think I Love You (1970) (excerpt)

Charlie Chaplin – “Je cherche après Titine (The Nonsense Song)” (1936) (excerpt)

Here are the full versions:
