The verse vocal melody to American Authors' pie-in-the-sky single Believer (released March 19, 2013) is very similar to the verse vocal melody to Fleetwood Mac's Everywhere (released November 28, 1987). While sung in different keys (Believer: D; Everywhere: F), both diatonic melodies feature nearly identical ascending and descending patterns for the first four bars (1-1-1-1-1-2-3/1-1-6-5). Compare the lines in Believer ("I'm a little bit sheltered/I'm a little bit scared") with those in Everywhere ("Can you hear me callin'/Out your name?). Chord progressions are also close, Believer: I-I-vi-IV-V; Everywhere: I-V-I-V-I-V-vi-IV.

Additional notes/observations: 

The chorus vocal melody for Tears for Fears' Mad World from their debut album The Hurting (released September 20, 1982) echoes the bridge vocal melody to Yusuf Islam's (the artist formerly known as Cat Stevens') Matthew and Son, the title track from his debut album (released March 10, 1967). Both sections feature the same exact melody over a ii-V (or minor2-5) chord progression, though in different keys (MW: E major; MaS: D major). Fun side note: Matthew and Sons features uncredited Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones.
