Yggdrasil brought up Darude - Sandstorm in the Youtube thread and it made me remember one thing I always thought was puzzling.
Darude - Sandstorm sounds really similar to Lautsprecher - Omnibus

Darude - Sandstorm

Lautsprecher - Omnibus
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4s4FZb-a8kk
(if you skip the really long intro)

Another one that's even weirder to me is that the beginning of the ending theme of harem anime Ichigo 100% sounds incredibly similar to Vengaboys - We like to Party.

Hinoi Team - Ike Ike

Vengaboys - We Like To Party

Reminds me of that controversy 5 years ago with Joe Satriani and Coldplay.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eb49QuPLuHg

Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up"

nah, Haunted Junction only has it going for the chorus section. Chrono Trigger's ROBO THEME has the Rick Astley connection for chorus AND verse!! (though its chorus ends far differently chord-progression wise)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n3-XY1bOGdY

It's a fairly well-recognized thing now --- people were "Robo-Rolling" a few years ago. Also, Mitsuda commented that he'd never heard NGGYU when he wrote Robo's Theme, so I suppose that absolves him. :P

I demand a copy of those two songs mixed together. Seriously, they actually mix fantastically. It's like each song is only using half the instruments.
