A new feature here at Siftin' is That Sounds Familiar, in which I pair up two songs that sound a little similar, whether it's the whole song, or just pieces.
First up, two songs that you probably have on a mix CD: "Top of the World" by the Carpenters, and "Pass the Dutchie" by Musical Youth.
In this case, it's the beginning of the verse of both songs. There's not much similar in the rest of the song, but I hear this in my head:
"Such a feeling coming over me (How does it feel when you got no food?)"
And that's how this works. Some will be shockingly similar, and some, I suspect, will only sound the same to me.
