Club tracks are meant to be easy to mix with other club tracks, which is why Pitbull’s “International Love” featuring Chris Brown sounds so similar to Taio Cruz’s “Break Your Heart” featuring Ludacris.
In this episode of “Songs That Sound Like Other Songs” Chris compares Ke$ha’s “Die Young,” Bruno Mars’ “Locked Out Of Heaven,” and Maroon 5’s “One More Night” to their audio doppelgängers.

Most of the time, I like bad pop music. Usually, the more a song sounds like another old hit, the more I appreciate it for being an example of a band doing what works. I really don’t care so much about pop music that’s derivative of other pop music, because at one point or another all of it is.
But I really don’t like this band Train. Like, at all. It’s not that I think what they’ve done to The Wallflowers’ “One Headlight” is a travesty. No. I just dislike Train for a half dozen other reasons that I lay out in this video.
