Musical coincidences # 90

March 7, 2011

Today’s coincidence is the result of another visit to a blog, this time at Popdose. A post there reviewed an album by a new group called Middle Brother. The song from the album that was highlighted there (and spoken highly of) is “Me Me Me”. The opening vocal melody in the verse reminded me of an Elvis Presley ditty.

Here’s the Middle Brother melody:
