The first line of the R Kelly tune is almost identical melodically and lyrically to the first line of the chorus of the Biffy Clyro tune. It's rare that a similarity like this exists both with the melody and lyrics.
I have both songs on my Spotify, and from only the beginning alone I can't distinguish them.
Melody of the first part of Cough Syrup with the refrain of The Tide That Left...
Pulp's song was released as part of the Countdown EP in 1991 (Although it has clearly been written more than a decade before that), whlie OMD's hit was released in 1980.
The underlying beats/thuds in both songs are quite similar. [Born to Die (:13) vs Royals (:05)]
