Gorillaz "Feel Good, Inc." (2005)

Where They Sound The Same: Play the first 30 seconds of "Staring at the Sun" then skip to the 1:05 mark on "Feel Good, Inc."

In 1997, U2 stumbled upon a memorable melody with the verses of "Staring at the Sun" before the song exploded in one of those big tunes that could make tens of thousands of people sway in unison. In 2005, Gorrillaz stumbled upon that same melody about a minute into "Feel Good, Inc." The Gorillaz track isn't the kind of thing you can sway to, but even amongst all that animated mischief, the peaceful sentiment of U2 bleeds through it.
