Coldplay's Hymn for the Weekend (released January 25, 2016) has a similar groove, verse vocal melody, and verse chord progression (relatively speaking) as Groove Theory's mid-90's chart-topper Tell Me (released September 5, 1995). Hymn for the Weekend's chorus vocal melody is also reminiscent of the intro vocal melody to fun's We Are Young, and Fabolous' Throw It In The Bag. Compare the melodies for the lines "[So if by the] time the bar closes and you feel like falling down" with "I-Oh-I-Oh/Got me feeling drunk and high."

Pat Benatar's Hit Me with Your Best Shot (released September 15, 1980) and Scandal's The Warrior (released August 1984) i.e. familiar I-IV-vi-V chorus chord progression also heard in Kesha's Die Young, Fine Young Cannibals' She Drives Me Crazy, and One Direction's What Makes You Beautiful;
As well as more contemporary fare like
The Killer's Mr. Brightside (released September 29, 2003) i.e. same I-IV-vi-V progression in the same key, and Coldplay's Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall (released June 3, 2011) i.e. verse melody.
