Default Musics that sound like each other

You know what I mean, when if you hum one song straight after one another, it's difficult not to hum the first one twice. There're intentional ones like the funeral tune, and the imperial march from Star Wars. Then there's ones only I seem to think are similar like the theme tunes to Eastenders and Thomas the Tank Engine.

Which songs do you think sound similar?


Recently I noticed that there's a certain bit of Cynthia's battle theme that reminded me of the roller coaster levels from Talmit's Adventure/Marvel Land

I think Route 209 in d/p sounds like 21 guns by greenday, and the cave music in jhoto sounds like coldplay's clocks.

The intro music to Yoshi's Island on SNES sounds eerily like The Soviet National Anthem, apparently...

I really think that the beginning King Crimson's "Starless" sounds like Pink Floyd's "Careful with that Axe, Eugene".

There's the classic Linkin Park one, that "Numb" and "Crawling" are the same damn song.

Also, most popular music follows the same Em, C, G, D or Am, F, G, D chords.

The Imperial March sounds just like "A Spoonful of Sugar" from Mary Poppins.

That sites also has a bunch of others, but I don't think that one can be beat.

Elecman's theme from Mega Man 1 and Faithfully by Journey...
Cyber Maze Core from X5 sounds a little bit like Lunatic Eyes ~ Invisible Full Moon from Touhou 8 to me.

I thought of another one. This background music to some of the dungeons in Recettear reminds me a lot of the second opening to the second season of K-ON (specifically the bit where the lyric is "forever forever shine!")

Wonderfilled Anthem and Highschool Never Ends:

"... would they call up a giant squid for a friendly meal? Highschool never ends! Da da, da da da da..."

Also for some reason when I'm trying to hum the gen 1/2 Pokemon Center music it turns into bike music.

I was watching the second Lion King movie a while back with my younger cousins and the orchestral bits often sound strangely like the first several seconds of "He's a Pirate" from the PotC movies.

Simba's Pride is the first link, and PotC is the second.

I smell a Disney conspiracy.... Maybe...

If it's by humming, I can start humming one thing, then another, and finish off with one of my own humming compositions.

Anyways, I find the Indiana Jones theme remarkably similar to one of the Superman themes. I can't hum one after the other without humming one of them wrong.

I always thought the Steel Samurai theme from Ace Attorney and Go K.K. Rider from Animal Crossing sounded sorta similar.

It's really easy to start singing "Savages" from Pocahontas and finish singing "The Plagues" from The Prince of Egypt.

Not exactly on topic, but I always thought that Rapid Fire, by Judas Priest, sounded like late 80's - early 90's Megadeth.

A little part of Beat It by Michael Jackson sounds a lot like Natural Killer Cyborg from MOTHER 3.

Bump, but some parts of Running in the 90s reminds me of the first part of the mini-boss music from Twilight Princess

Beat It's intro also sounds like the intro to Daytripper by the Beatles

Bump, but Ed Sheeran's Shape of You could very well be a mash-up of No Scrubs by TLC and No Diggity by Blackstreet.
