Looks like Tsunku used a BBC sound effects record and sped it up a little for the intro to Shabondama.

Check this out, from a radio show broadcast in 1985!

They don't really sound similar, but yesterday Peter was going through my iPod songs and he saw Circle of Life and expected the Lion King but it was the Kamen Rider Kiva song!

When Go Girl! Koi no Victory first came out the first thing that came to my mind was Pat Boone's "Speedy Gonzales".

Also, most of Tanpopo's discography is directly drawn from the Beatles, but the most blatant examples would be the piano chords in Be Happy Koi no Yajirobee and the use of the harpsichord in Koi wo Shichaimashita:

(In My Life's harpsichord started my love for baroque music :wub: )


Aaaaaand, I would swear the intro in Nanchatte Renai comes from a classical piece but I can't find which one  :huhuh

This is technically not H!P so not sure if it counts, but I was listening to the acoustic version of Kikka's "Kikkake wa You" earlier and realized the main intro/outro melody sounded like a Lupe Fiasco song...



Both songs were released around the same time (Lupe's was first by two months), and were possibly recorded around the same time as well, so no telling who inspired who here; it's most likely a crazy coincidence. Actually I just remembered all the drama and delays surrounding the Lasers album, so maybe that tracked leaked and gave inspiration? :lol:

^ I should also add to that: "Love Together" by Berryz Kobo...seriously, try singing "Never Gonna Give Up" over the chorus :P


Another song with a chorus just like that: "Bacchikoi Seishun" by Kobushi Factory!


It's colloquially known as the "Royal Road chord progression", and it's one of the most (over)used chords in j-pop.


The stretched out version of the chords, famously exemplified in the chorus of Frankie Valli's "Can't Take My Eyes Off You", can be heard in the chorus of Juice=Juice's "Keep On Joushou Shikou" (fastforward to 1:14)


It's led to me eventually creating this "Love Machine" remix:

How about a reversal of this topic? MC Frontalot's "Mornings Come and Go", released in 2014, sounds pretty similar to the 2005 Berryz classic "Special Generation":
