Like I'm Gonna Lose You by Meghan Trainor featuring John Legend (released June 23, 2015) owes a debt of gratitude to numerous 60s Soul/R&B records (including Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell's Your Precious Love). However, Sam Cooke's Bring It on Home to Me (released May 8, 1962) seems the most likely template for Trainor's hit (BIoHtM is actually Cooke's re-working of Charles Brown's 1959 single I Want to Go Home). While the chord changes differ significantly, similarities between LIGLY and BIoHtM include: key (both songs are in C major), meter (both songs are in 12/8 time signature), melody (LIGLY's verse vocal melody is very close to BIoHtM's intro piano melody).

The chorus to Andy Grammer's Honey, I'm Good (released April 8, 2014) is reminiscent of the chorus to Rednex's August 1994 cover of Cotton Eye Joe a.k.a. Cotton-Eyed Joe (a traditional American country/folk song, which dates to before the Civil War). [Thanks to Andrew Zucker for suggesting this one!]

Additional notes/observations: 

Ryan Adams' 2015 Grammy-nominated song Gimme Something Good (released July 1, 2014) from his eponymous 14th album, bears resemblance to several past rock/pop hits, including Couldn't Get It Right (Climax Blues Band), Twilight Zone (Golden Earring), Lunatic Fringe (Red Rider), My Favorite Mistake (Sheryl Crow), I Got A Line On You (Spirit), and more (noted below). While in a different key, GSG's verse vocal melody, rhythm, and bass part also resembles Aretha Franklin's R&B classic Chain of Fools (released November 1967; and written by Don Covay). Finally, the vocal melody to GSG's chorus is similar to the vocal line in Eddie Money's Take Me Home Tonight, when Money sings "Just like Ronnie Sang," as well as to the chorus of Poco's Heart of the Night.
