Taylor Swift's Blank Space (released November 10, 2014, and written by Swift, Max Martin, and Shellback) echoes several songs including: Leona Lewis' Bleeding Love (released October 19, 2007), Lorde's Team (released September 13, 2013), Stevie Nicks' Leather and Lace (released October 6, 1981), Jefferson Starship's Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now (released January 30, 1987), fun's We Are Young (released September 20, 2011), and even ABBA's The Winner Takes It All (July 21, 1980).

Other than Hozier's chorus, I feel like he basically just wrote new lyrics to Feist's song.

Additional notes/observations: 

The chorus to John Legend's breakthrough ballad All of Me (released August 12, 2013) bears some resemblance to the chorus to Village People's disco anthem Y.M.C.A. (released November 13, 1978). With the exception of the third chord, both choruses have the same relative chord progression (Y.M.C.A. is in the key of Gb, while All of Me is a whole step higher in the key of Ab). Likewise, relative to each song's key, chorus melodies have similar contours (Y.M.C.A.: 3-5-3-5-3-5 "It's fun to stay at the [...]"; All of Me: 3-5-3-6-3 "'Cause all of me loves [...]").

Y.M.C.A.: Gb-Ebmin-Abmin-Db (I-vi-ii-V or 1-6minor-2minor-5)

All of Me: Ab-Fmin-Db-Eb (I-vi-IV-V or 1-6minor-4-5)

All of Me (1:02) VS Y.M.C.A. (:45)

Additional notes/observations: 

The chorus to French DJ/producer David Guetta's single Dangerous featuring Sam Martin on vocals (released October 6, 2014) seems to have been inspired by the chorus to Nirvana's grunge anthem Smells Like Teen Spirit (released September 10, 1991). Both the chorus chord progression and chorus vocal melody to Dangerous is similar to those found in SLTS. There is also some lyrical similarity. Compare the lines, Dangerous: "I don't know where the lights are taking us, but something in the night is dangerous," with SLTS's line "Let me out now, this is dangerous/Here we are now entertain us."

Dangerous (:52) VS Smells Like Teen Spirit (:57)
