Sometimes you get an opening that's ALMOST certainly a tribute to an earlier record.

The opening of the Cars' Just What I Needed" is almost exactly the same as the opening of "Yummy Yummy Yummy (I've Got Love in My Tummy)" by the bubblegum group Ohio Express.

And Hall & Oates were probably saluting the Supremes when they copied the opening bass line of "You Can't Hurry Love" in "Maneater."
