similar sounds: sia v. katy perry

i am WAY behind the times on pop music. i am not ashamed to have just discovered gems like taio cruz’s “dynamite” and neon tree’s “animal.” i feel completely senile for saying this, but there are some pretty catchy songs on the radio these days! another jam i love is katy perry’s “teenage dream.”(i’m sure everyone else has heard this song a billion times, but BEAR WITH ME!)

after some deep thought, i’ve realized that my fixation on this song is rooted in its subtle resemblance of another great song. on an obvious level, “teenage dream” and sia’s “never gonna leave me” have the same basic theme. (this is probably a moronic thing to say, considering 99% of all songs ever written are about love.)

but even though these two tracks sound extremely different overall, i SWEAR they share some similar notes? am i crazy?!?! there’s something there… take a listen:

now that i think about it, the beginning of that sounds eerily similar to the office‘s theme song, no???
