Additional notes/observations: 

The chorus vocal melody to Selena Gomez's The Heart Wants What it Wants (released November 6, 2014) is reminiscent of the pre-chorus vocal melody to Guns N' Roses symphonic power ballad November Rain (released February 18, 1992). Compare melodies for the lines, THWWIW: "The bed's getting cold and you're not here/The future that we hold is so unclear," with November Rain: "But lovers always come and lovers always go/And no one's really sure who's lettin' go today." Other similarities include: key (THWWIW in Bb major, and NV in B major--a half-step apart), and chord progression (THWWIW: IV-ii-vi-I; NV: IV-ii-I).

Additional notes/observations: 

The verse to Green Day's Grammy-nominated song 21 Guns (released May 25, 2009) bears a strong resemblance to the verse to Heart's power ballad What About Love (released June 1, 1985). Similarities include: same key (Dminor/F), same chord progression (Dminor-Bb-F-C or vi-IV-I-V), close melodies (compare lines 21 Guns: "what's worth fighting for?" with WAL: "ain't makin' it through to your heart." The chorus to 21 Guns also bears some resemblance to the chorus to Mott the Hoople's classic All the Young Dudes (released July 1972 and written by David Bowie).
