The chorus vocal melody to American duo Timeflies' song Worse Things than Love featuring Natalie La Rose (to be released: September 18, 2015) echoes the verse vocal melody from Toto's 80s chart-topper Africa (released May 10, 1982) from the Grammy-winning album Toto IV. Compare the lines, Worse Things than Love: "Take a chance with me tonight, I know you feel it so do I", and Africa: "I hear the drums echoing tonight, but she hears only whispers of some quiet conversation."

Additional notes/observations: 

Ariana Grande's One Last Time (released February 10, 2015) is reminiscent of The Human League's Human (released August 11, 1986), as well as Janet Jackson's Come Back to Me (:28) (released June 18, 1990--nearly 25 years ago today). Both of the aforementioned songs that preceded One Last Time, were written and produced by Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, the Minneapolis, Minnesota production duo that owned the Billboard Pop/R&B charts in the late 80s/early 90s. Similarities include: key (both songs are in Ab major), verse chord progression (both songs feature F minor-Eb/G-Ab-Db movement), and production arrangement (ethereal synth/rhodes keys, muted drum/kick).
