    Yeah, I would say they are, but neither of them are particularly distinctive either stylistically or in terms of the way they're written. I'm sure that it wouldn't be too difficult to find other songs that have broadly similar melodies - even while listening to the first one, I had the feeling I'd definitely heard the same melodic pattern before. :p: I think what adds to the similarity and makes them sound even more alike is the emphasis on rhythmic percussion and the switch from a sort of minimalist start (with just the guitar plucking and percussion) to an anthem-like choral section. :dontknow:

    Yeah, I guess, I just thought the instrument/melody at the start were pretty similar, along with the guys voices and song theme ... I literally get them confused when my ipods on shuffle sometimes
