Q. This may seem a bit odd, but every time I listen to Katy Perry's song Roar, especially in the first verse, all I can hear is Hurts Like Heaven. I think the bass line or the chord progression or something must be similar, do you agree? All my friends think I'm an over-obsessed weirdo for noticing this, but I'd rather be obsessed with a good band than the stuff they listen to (not mentioning any names...)
The Oracle replies:
I actually do disagree, Anna-Marie. The first time I heard Roar in August of last year, I thought of American Authors' Best Day Of My Life which was released in March 2013.
