Sitting here at work typing away with 70s playing on spotify and Best of my Love by The Emotions comes on. Hang on, I've heard that somewhere else. Then it comes to me, Mariah Carey and Emotions. A quick google tells me that the writer of Best of my Love actually sued Mariah and C & C Music Factory of it. They of course denied sampling Best of my Love.

They don't sound alike but similar lyrics in D'yer Maker by Led Zep and Every Move You Make by Police

(Zep. >>>)
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Every breath I take, oh oh oh oh
Oh, every move I make
Oh, baby please don't go

From 5:30 on 'Matty Groves' [1969] there is a drum bit leading into a guitar solo which sounds a lot like 'Jump Into the Fire' [1971] with drum solo leading into guitar solo at 5:08 - guitar [before the drum solo] at 3:36 is similar too

I've always thought the Foo Fighters' 'Long Road to Ruin' resembled Deep Purple's 'Highway Star' a lot but that might be entirely in my head

A little too similar? Forget that, how about virtually a direct copy?

From 1974 - keep that in mind.

There's no need to even post the other song in question.
