“No One Does It Like You” (Department of Eagles, 2008)

“You Baby” (The Ronettes, 1964)

(suggested by Sean)

Sean writes: ‘Just realized when delving into some old music, “You Baby” by the Ronettes has a backbeat that is uncannily borrowed by Department of Eagles “No One Does It Like You.”‘

I struggled a bit with this one, because I think there are other songs with that thumping backbeat, but this one is particularly similar. The percussion and tempo are so close that, when playing these clips back to back, I could barely tell where one ended and the other began.
