57 Songs That Sound The Same

Radiohead "Idioteque" (2000)


Nicki Minaj "Save Me" (2010)


Where They Sound The Same: Listen to the sound that comes in at :12 mark on the Radiohead song. Then listen to the beginning of the Nicki Minaj song.

This similarity isn't an obvious one, but something is happening at the beginning of Nicki Minaj's "Save Me" that only sounds suspicious once you play Radiohead's "Idioteque" on fast-forward. It's not an exact match, but it's way too close not to have you pressing repeat a couple of times and wondering. Is it a Radiohead sample sped up, pitch altered, or reversed? Is it "Idioteque" on speed meshed with the Powerpuff girls theme song? Don't spend too much time on this one or—trust us—you'll start going crazy, but there is something happening here, that's for sure.
