Irish recording artist Hozier's single Take Me to Church (released September 16, 2013) is reminiscent of seminal British rockers Pink Floyd's Have a Cigar (released November 15 1975). Both songs are in the key of Eminor, and feature somewhat similar progressions (TMtC: i-iv-i-iv-III-iv-i; HaC: i-VI-VII-i)--Have a Cigar uses C major rather than TMtC's relative A minor. However, there is no mistaking TMtC's descending chromatic guitar riff starting on the G note: G-F#-F#-F-E, as being a direct copy of David Gilmour's original from Have a Cigar. Gilmour's riff is also imitated in Coldplay's Violet Hill (released May 9, 2008), though it has been shifted a half step lower (i.e. starting on the F# note). The chorus vocal melody/progression for Take Me to Church is also similar to the chorus vocal melody/progression for Joe Cocker's You Are So Beautiful.
