Additional notes/observations: 

You'll Be Back from Lin-Manual Miranda's musical Hamilton (released October 16, 2015) is heavily influenced by several Sixties' pop songs including The Beach Boys' God Only Knows (released July 11, 1966), The Beatles' Penny Lane (released February 13, 1967), and the Turtles' Happy Together (released February 14, 1967). You'll Be Back borrows the staccato quarter note keyboard (harpsichord) part from God Only Knows, as well as the Wrecking Crew's muted bass line and bouncy drum groove (present in the Beach Boys' California Girls as well). You'll Be Back's glee club "da da da" vocals in the chorus are also similar to God Only Know's middle section vocals, and Happy Together's "ba ba ba" vocals, while YBB's guitar part (around 3:00) and pizzicato strings are similar to Penny Lane.

You'll Be Back (1:14) VS God Only Knows (1:11)

Additional notes/observations: 

The Black Keys' Weight of Love (released January 27, 2015) from their eighth studio album Turn Blue is reminiscent of Neil Young's Down by the River (released May 14, 1969). Both songs begin in the key of D major, and feature staccato guitar rhythms that repeatedly move from E minor to A major (ii-V). This same intro progression can be found in Pink Floyd's Breathe (released March 1, 1973), which also seemingly appropriates the first half of Down by the River's chorus chord progression (Cmajor7-Bminor). Thanks to Justin Schack for suggesting this comparison!
