From what I come from, there is a song based from (a cover of) Sophie's "Stop The Music":

There's also a pop-dance track from Poland, in which I don't remember the name, which melodies are largely based from the original Time track.

The riff in Ike Ike by Tri-star sounds like the riff in We Like to Party by Vengaboys.

Ike ike also reminds me of a certain evil moon that tries to fling my satellites away from duna.

The first thing I thought when I heard J. Stark - Spider Queen was the similarity with Billy The Butcher - Cannibal Attraction in the first rhyme of the chorus :eek:

Haha, this was a cool one :D They have probably first heard Namie Amuro's version, though:

I was quite disappointed when I found out she sings "Love is endless dream" and not "Love is interest street" like I first heard it :grin:

The piano riff in Mr. Zivago - Yesterday (from 1993) sounds a bit similar to the riff of Sophie - Stop The Music (1992).

The first couple of notes sound the same as Sophie's riff, just slower in tempo, but then change towards the end of the riff to sound a bit different than Sophie's.

Yesterday:

These songs below all have the same riff melody, in one way or another.
I've synced each video to start right at the part of the song that sounds the same, for easy comparison.

Estrella's "You Can Fly"(from the BLAST label) sounds like "Defying Gravity" from Wicked.

Go 2's "Super Striker" riff is very similar to Verdi's Aida march used for the "Graduation" march played in my home country...
