Exclamation Re: songs with similar intros

Paul Revere & the Raiders released a couple of singles that sounded so much like previous chart hits by other bands that i'm surprised they didn't get sued for copyright infringement. Every time I heard Too Much Talk it reminded me of Paperback Writer by the Beatles:






Meanwhile Don't Take It So Hard bears a suspicious resemblance to Time Won't Let Me by the Outsiders:

Re: songs with similar intros




When the second song was popular, I heard on the radio what I thought was the beginning to it and sang in jest, "I feel so bad, got a worried mind…" and I was shocked that what they ultimately played was the first song!

Re: songs with similar intros

I've long thought that this pre-Joe Walsh Eagles song from 1973 and this Joe Walsh song from 1978 (on his first solo album after joining the Eagles) have uncannily similar intros:

Certain Kind of Fool - Eagles


Indian Summer - Joe Walsh


It's probably a coincidence, and I like both songs very much. They go in different directions after the first 15-20 seconds or so, but the opening guitar riffs do sound rather alike.
