Additional notes/observations: 

The chorus to Jamaican singer OMI's hit Cheerleader (originally released in 2012; remix released May 19, 2014) is reminiscent of the chorus to Scottish alternative band The Trash Can Sinatra's tune Only Tongue Can Tell (released 1990). Similarities includes: key (both in E major), tempo/groove, chord progression (variations on a simple I-IV-V), and vocal melody. Cheerleader has also been compared to Paul Simon's hit You Can Call Me Al (released September 5, 1986).

Icelandic band Kaleo's song All The Pretty Girls (released January 20, 2015) is reminiscent of the Australian singer-songwriter Vance Joy's Riptide (released May 21, 2013). Similarities include: chord progression (both songs are in the key of C# and follow a vi-V-I progression), voice characteristics (similar male tenor/falsetto timbres), melody (ATPG's lead guitar melody and Riptide's verse vocal melody).

Additional notes/observations: 

Sheppard's hit Geronimo (released February 28, 2014) is reminiscent of several tunes including Phillip Phillips' Raging Fire (released March 3, 2014), Adam Ant's Strip (released November 1983), Simple Minds' Alive and Kicking (released September 20, 1985), and The Cars' Shake It Up (released November 9, 1981). Similarities between the verses to Geronimo, Raging Fire, Alive and Kicking and Strip are: same key (G major), vocal/guitar melodies that mainly utilize the first four notes of the G pentatonic major scale, similar tempos (Geronomo and Raging Fire), and similar rhythms (latin/rumba feel of the bass/drum part).

The chorus vocal melody to Canadian singer-songwriter Shawn Mendes' Something Big (released November 7, 2014) is reminiscent of the chorus keyboard melody to Passion Pit's Take a Walk (released May 8, 2012). Keys are only a half-step apart and the first five notes of both melodies (relative to their keys) are identical. Even the video seems familiar (i.e. singer on a picturesque suburban street).

Additional notes/observations: 

The verse to One Direction's Clouds (released November 17, 2014) echoes many of the elements of Phoenix's 1901 (released February 23, 2009). Similarities include: same key (C major), tempo, fuzz synth bass lines that move from F to the A (or the IV to the vi), and staccato eight notes from a muted rhythm guitar.
