Elvis Costello's You Belong to Me (released March 17, 1978) from his album This Year's Model pays homage to (or brazenly loots, depending on your perspective) the Rolling Stones' classic The Last Time (released February 26, 1965). Compare opening guitar riffs/verse chord progressions.

The electric guitar part from Pink's U + Ur Hand (released August 28, 2006) is reminiscent of the electric guitar riff from Nazareth's hard rock classic Hair of the Dog (released January 1, 1975). Hair of the Dog has also been covered by Guns N' Roses, Deep Purple, and is featured in the video game Grand Theft Auto IV: The Lost and Damned.

Irish recording artist Hozier's single Take Me to Church (released September 16, 2013) is reminiscent of seminal British rockers Pink Floyd's Have a Cigar (released November 15 1975). Both songs are in the key of Eminor, and feature somewhat similar progressions (TMtC: i-iv-i-iv-III-iv-i; HaC: i-VI-VII-i)--Have a Cigar uses C major rather than TMtC's relative A minor. However, there is no mistaking TMtC's descending chromatic guitar riff starting on the G note: G-F#-F#-F-E, as being a direct copy of David Gilmour's original from Have a Cigar. Gilmour's riff is also imitated in Coldplay's Violet Hill (released May 9, 2008), though it has been shifted a half step lower (i.e. starting on the F# note). The chorus vocal melody/progression for Take Me to Church is also similar to the chorus vocal melody/progression for Joe Cocker's You Are So Beautiful.
