You listen to a song which reminds you of another song.

But wait, there's a twist!


These songs might:

  • share the same (or a similar) DNA by virtue of their title - or even by virtue of the parents (songwriters, musicians) who wrote them into existence;
  • have their own unique take on the same subject. These might either complement or contrast with each other, often in weird, unexpected, but wonderful ways.

 

See if you spot an invisible string between two songs in one of your playlists, or in your Queue. However distant or improbable the relation, share it below and tell us how you made the connection!

👧 Only Child - Sasha Sloan

👦 Son of an Only Child - Tom Odell

 

Yes, the titles of these two songs are reminiscent of each other - that's how, while listening through to Sasha Sloan's new album, titled 'Only Child', I thought of its possible sibling, Tom Odell's 'Son of an Only Child'.

I love how two songs which apparently broach the same subject (being an only child) can do so in such contrasting ways, both sonically and lyrically. Have a listen for yourselves 🙂

Nice topic @Peter!

 

After reading this, I realised that from my most recent songs, these two TikTok -inspired tracks have a garden-y vibe connecting them.

 

See what I mean for yourselves: 

 

spotify:track:1fah1uAs7HeTYDlNftKr3K - the cover art is someone standing in a blooming garden

 

spotify:track:0y9fkzOaaQy4Up22BGUbIp - the title is Backyard Boy and the singer wants to dance in their backyard 

 

They make me look forward to spring!

Hey @Peter !

 

I love this thread, I feel like these two tracks in my playlist could be siblings.
They're pretty different in feel but both piano vibes with the title link too!

@Katerina - loving the garden vibes 🌻

@Melody - Fallingwater was already a favourite of mine, but I liked its sibling too 💚

Let me throw another couple into the mix:

 

👧 Seventeen - Sharon Van Etten
👧👧 Seventeen - Sharon Van Etten feat. Norah Jones

A lot of songs which I love have a single version and a subsequent version with a featured artist. A few that come to mind are 'Us' - James Bay ft. Alicia Keys; 'Shape of You' - Ed Sheeran ft. Stormzy; 'Dark Days' - Local Natives ft. Sylvan Esso.

The version of 'Seventeen' featuring Norah Jones is not just Norah adding her vocals to the second verse. Norah's jazz influence, with the gently swinging drum rhythm replacing the punchy 4:4 rock one in the original, is all over the track. It's not so much a feature as it is a collaboration in the truest sense: two artists joining creative forces and (re)writing an entire song together.

Here are a couple of songs that I think could be considered as “musical siblings,” since there are a few similarities that I’ve noticed between them:

 

https://open.spotify.com/track/5MJfyRfKka0VL99RRDhkHY?si=7nArgB0JTsGToT-6VFRKXg

 

https://open.spotify.com/track/5XMi32G8g2a4oLi88DUXkq?si=BtqCmV4pQ8KD1l3X5X0TJg

 

Both tracks have “Helios” in their song titles; “Helios Hyperion” refers to the Sun god in ancient Greek mythology, while “Heliosphere” refers to the outer atmosphere of the Sun.

 

These songs are also similar in that they don’t have lyrics, and are representative of the psychedelic-, space-, and stoner rock genres of music.

 

Cheers!

Two fingerstyle guitar songs titled after watermelon:

https://open.spotify.com/track/42Ax5pKF5PsNOkirug0sTl?si=6CjupZzPQbu8TTur3HO85w

 

The tracks are also connected by their relation to John Fahey. The first was released under the Takoma Records label, started by Fahey in the 1950s. The second is part of the American Primitive Guitar genre, which Fahey pioneered--Fahey's influence in the track is pretty recognizable.

They even sound alike. I didn't know any better I would say it's the same song or artist
