These two songs are less similar to each other than every song in the infamous "Pachabel rant" video is to every other song in that video.

I'm not a musician, I have no idea of bars or which notes are which or anything like that, but when I hear the base music for the Flame song, I absolutely recognize it as Dark Horse. I don't think it's any other Katy Perry song, or any other song from anybody else. I'm absolutely, 100% recognizing it as the intro for Dark Horse.
