Part One: Sounds Like....

Part Two: Misheard Lyrics

Remember that time you heard that song and thought it was that other song but then realized it wasn't but by golly it sure sounded like that other song and now you have to tell the world about it but how? Yeah, me too.

Well, here's your chance. If you can convince me one song sounds like another, I'll add the comparison. But until then, you'll have to be content to check out my own ideas of what sounds like something else. (Mouse over "comments" to see what I have to say – you don't need to click anymore.)

In all cases, the newest song is listed first, followed by the song that it sounds like.

DISCLAIMER: I am not saying that these artists deliberately copied from the others. As a creative person myself, I know how easy it is to come up with a perfectly original idea, only to realize that it was someone else's that just happened to be lodged in my subconscious. It should also be noted that some smartiepants with a big computer figured out that every different possible combination of musical notes had been used up by the late 1960s, so none of these people are to blame anyway! (And some examples, like "Radar Love"/"George Of The Jungle" are here just for fun and not because of any actual resemblance!)

Bif Naked's "October Song" sounds a lot like a Milla song, though it probably isn't. The Muffs' "Eye To Eye" sounds like either the '60s or the '80s ... but I can't place it....
Any help on these would be appreciated!
Sorry, I couldn't find any uglier colours!
