The chorus vocal melody and chord progression to One Direction's Night Changes (released November 17, 2014) is reminiscent of Yazoo's synth ballad Only You (released March 15, 1982), though the key of Night Changes is a half-step lower.

Additional notes/observations: 

The chorus vocal melody to Selena Gomez's The Heart Wants What it Wants (released November 6, 2014) is reminiscent of the pre-chorus vocal melody to Guns N' Roses symphonic power ballad November Rain (released February 18, 1992). Compare melodies for the lines, THWWIW: "The bed's getting cold and you're not here/The future that we hold is so unclear," with November Rain: "But lovers always come and lovers always go/And no one's really sure who's lettin' go today." Other similarities include: key (THWWIW in Bb major, and NV in B major--a half-step apart), and chord progression (THWWIW: IV-ii-vi-I; NV: IV-ii-I).

The Heart Wants What It Wants (1:21) VS November Rain (2:30)

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