57 Songs That Sound The Same

ABBA "Dancing Queen" (1976)

Shania Twain "C'est La Vie" (2002)


Where They Sound The Same: These two don't sound anything alike until the :53 mark of "C'est La Vie," when Shania lifts that familiar ABBA melody for her own chorus.

Shania Twain's Canadian twang is unique enough to allow her to get away with a lot, but it can't mask the fact that the sticky chorus to 2002's "C'est La Vie" is lifted almost exactly from ABBA's biggest hit, "Dancing Queen," a song that hit No. 1 on the charts of over a dozen countries. It's an undeniable match, but you've got to give Shania Twain credit for the bold move.
