These two songs are like cars from different subbrands built on the same chassis. I really enjoy them both, but back-to-back I’m a little annoyed the hooks are so very similar. I checked The Breaks, and there is no common sample noted there … ideas?

Kids with GunsGorillazDemon Days (2005)

Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!Nick Cave and the Bad SeedsDig, Lazarus, Dig (2008)

And then the Nick Cave sounds a lot like The PixiesCactus from Surfer Rosa (2003)…

… which The Swell Season (download mp3) and David Bowie (watch) both cover live.
