The verse vocal melody to Leo Sayer's signature 70s soft rock ballad, When I Need Love (released February 1977) bears a strong resemblance to the chorus vocal melody to Leonard Cohen's folk song Famous Blue Raincoat (released 1971). The intro/outro vocal melody to Elton John and Gary Osborne's pop hit Little Jeannie (released May 1,1980) also seems to take inspiration from Famous Blue Raincoat (i.e "You stepped into my life from a bad dream [...]"). Thanks to Ian R. (@77BlueJays) for suggesting this comparison!
