Additional notes/observations: 

Canadian indie-rock darlings Arcade Fire's latest single Here Comes The Night Time (released September 2013) seems to be channeling late English soul/pop singer Robert Palmer's 1978 hit Every Kinda People (which itself was patterned after Marvin Gaye's Mercy Mercy Me). Similarities between EKP and HCTN include tempo (EKP: 93bpm, HCTN 95bpm), production (steel drums, congas, guitar, bass, drum parts), and the rhythm of the melody for the steel drum part from EKP's chorus is very close to the rhythm of the vocal melody for HCTN's verse ("When you look at the sky, just try looking inside"). Every Kinda People (:43) and Here Comes The Night Time (6:08).
