Additional notes/observations: 

The chorus vocal melody to Wiz Khalifa's See You Again (released March 17, 2015), which features Charile Puth, is similar to the verse vocal melody to Bonnie Raitt's signature ballad I Can't Make You Love Me (released October 21, 1991, and written by Mike Reid and Allen Shamblin). Both songs are in the key of Bb major, and have similar progressions and diatonic melodies that begin on the downbeat with the sixth degree of the root scale, followed by the fifth degree, and descending in the second phrase (SEE below).

Additional notes/observations: 

The Moon Song was written and performed by Karen Lee Orzolek (a.k.a. Karen O of New York band the Yeah Yeah Yeahs) for Spike Jonze's 2013 movie Her. The track has received a 2014 Oscar nomination for Best Original Song, and bears resemblance to 1981's Oscar and Golden Globe winner for Best Original Song, Arthur's Theme (Best That You Can Do), which was penned by Christopher Cross, Burt Bacharach, Carole Bayer Sager, and Peter Allen, for the Dudley Moore picture of the same name. Similarities include: chord structure (verses for TMS follow Dmin-G7-C-C, while verses for AT follow Dmin-G7-Cmaj7-F and continue), and melody (both feature a descending tritone interval, F to B (or b7 to major third), which emphasizes the G7 chord).
