Am I the only one who noticed this about "Stay The Night"?

The riff played at the opening and after the second chorus sounds exactly like the opening to "Up Where We Belong" by Joe Cocker & Jennifer Warnes. Here, listen:

I wouldn't say "exactly". There sure are a few notes that are the same but the two melodies are not "exactly" the same, they're just kinda similar.

Being a guitarist I can tell you that the notes used in the both song are basic.

So that's not a big deal.

If you listen to the intro for 99 Revolutions, it's almost the same as the riff in Bruce Springsteen's " No Surrender"

Oh yay, the old "this song sounds like an older songs, so that means that Billie is a thieving asshole, let's stop liking them!" argument.
