Musical Similarities

The other day I was listening to Green Day’s “Brain Stew” for the umpteenth time (don’t ask) and a thought re-struck me that the intro sounds an awful lot like Chicago’s “25 or 6 to 4.”

Turns out (as usual) that I’m not the first to notice the eerie similarity.

Judge for yourself:

Green Day’s “Brain Stew

Chicago’s “25 or 6 to 4”

For the sake of comparison, here’s the canonical example of unintentional musical similarities: George Harrison’s “My Sweet Lord” versus The Chiffons “He’s So Fine”.

Happy Wednesday!

Oh, and for those looking for Lost recaps, my regular schedule resumes next week (baby permitting).
