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).
