Someone who don't believe me in this comment... Roar was written before Brave Brave just released in the early 2013 and Roar released in late 2013 by doing and writing because she thinking about the lyrics and accept it from VEVO

24 Born This Way by Lady Gaga vs Express Yourself & Vogue by Madonna

Lady Gaga allegedly ripped off Express Yourself & Vogue, which were both by Madonna, possibly proving her influence on her. - SamanthaRosie

25 The Old Man Down the Road by John Fogerty vs Run Through the Jungle by CCR

26 Radio Nowhere by Bruce Springsteen vs 867 - 5309 (Jenny) by Tommy Tutone

It's really only a couple of moments here and there, but there's no way Bruce wasn't inspired by Tommy Tutone's unforgettable one-hit wonder. If you know both songs, you'll hear 'Jenny' unmistakably and might want to end the chorus with '867-530 niinne' out of instinct. Personally, I prefer 'Jenny' anyway. - truckturner
