The Great Jungle Book/Zelda conspiracy

There's nothing similar between "Sugar" and "Beat It".


Okay, no, they're really not very similar at all, but I'm not sure I can say I don't hear what Hemophiliac was talking about in his post. The rhythms of "show me good loving, make it alright/" and "show 'em your funk is strong as your fight" are the exact same, though the melody isn't quite identical between the two (the line in "Beat It" only bounces back and forth between the 3rd and 4th scale degrees while the line from "Sugar" goes through the 5th scale degree as well). I don't think the two songs have that much else in common, but I don't see how you can say you don't see a reasonable comparison between those two lines.


Heck, just try it yourself and sing the "Beat It" line over "Sugar" and vice versa. It's a little weird to compare them directly since the lines sound totally different in different harmonic contexts, but if you just sing one over the other, it's not that far-fetched.

That's the similarity that I was hearing.  You got it Skyline.

Could it be they both start with "Show" and sound vaguely similar? Very briefly they sound somewhat similar all of 4 seconds, but I doubt it was a conscious effort on the part of Maroon 5. 


as a side note found this....
