I realize this is (relatively) old news and may have even been discused here before (although, I don't remember seeing it), but hearing Bruno Mars' "Just The Way You Are" the other day made me remember that after the first few times I heard it, I thought the chord structure was eerily similar, if not the same, as Alicia Keys' "Doesn't Mean Anything."
I can't remember which came first (or which was released first, I should say). And I know similar musical thoughts can occur independently from one another. But you could swap melody (verses and chorus) for either song and they'd fit seamlessly atop the other for the most part.
No agenda here. Just posting my observation (late, but still).
