While Canadian singer-songwriter-producer Abel Makkonen Tesfaye's a.k.a. The Weeknd's Can't Feel My Face (released June 8, 2015) has drawn comparisons to Michael Jackson's Rock With You (:51), mainly due to the vocal similarities between Tesfaye and the late King of Pop, elements of Can't Feel My Face can be found in Herb Alpert's Rise (released July 20, 1979), The Greg Khin Band's Jeopardy (2:03) (released 1983), Bill Wither's Lovely Day (2:17) (released December 1977), and even Madness' Our House (:15) (released November 12, 1982). Compare the bass lines/groove from Can't Feel My Face with those from Rise, Lovely Day, and Our House, and the chorus drum fill in CFMF with the one in Jeopardy.

The bass line to Nick Jonas' Teacher (released October 14, 2014) is reminscent of the bass line to the Commodores funk classic Brick House (released August 26, 1977). Both bass lines play off of the pentatonic minor scale (Teacher in the key of G minor, Brick House in the key of A minor) and feature a chromatic walk-up from the seventh step of the minor scale to the root, starting on the third beat. Also, the synth solo in Teacher (around :51) is vaguely reminiscent of the theme to the film Beverly Hills Cop a.k.a. Axel F (1:16) by Harold Faltermeyer. Finally, Teacher's verse vocal melody is similar to the verse vocal melody to Kelly Clarkson's Walk Away (released January 17, 2006).

Also, elements of "Holiday" by Madonna (1:19) in "The Real Thing". Turns out Peter Hook, bass player of New Order, collaborated on the song, so no harm, no foul... just highly derivative.

Hard to pinpoint this one, but both songs involve dancing, fantasy, both start with a I - IV progression, the verse bass line in both is tonic-fifth-major 3rd, and other than that, you just have to listen and feel... hard to put into words, but it's there.

As the World Falls Down (:07) VS Dance With Me (:24)
