Ke$ha's "Tik Tok" and Katy Perry's "California Gurls" sound similar.

Only difference is that Katy Perry's song doesn't make me want to crush butterflies.

the hook is the same for jason derulo's 'in my head' and lady gaga's 'just dance'.

Both lines are sung exactly the same.

Examples like these go on for days.

Pop music is too predictable and formulaic for any pop song to be considered total original nowadays anyway though.

That really won't change ever.

I think they were both produced by the same guy as well.

the best part is that it was the same song writer. Lukasz Gottwald wrote both songs.

Katy Perry and Kesha both have "co writing" credit on their songs but obviously they must have come up with a word or 2 if that because it can't be a coincidence that they both wrote a song that sounds the same with the same collaborator.
