Songs that sound too similar to be a coincidence

I was interested to hear the new debut album by longtime Tom Petty guitarist Mike Campbell’s band, The Dirty Knobs. The second track on “Wreckless Abandon” is “Pistol Packin’ Mama (feat. Chris Stapleton).” A few seconds in, I thought it sounded an awful lot like “Motorcycle Mama” from Neil Young’s 1978 album, “Comes a Time” … too much so to be a coincidence.

Please feel free to check me on this and let me know if you think I am overstating the similarity.

What other songs sound too similar to be a coincidence?
