music links: Don't Bring Me Down

thanks to wiki for this connection.  it isn't only the bassline that is lifted but the bridge as well.

Atomic Rooster - I Can't Take No More (1970)

Electric Light Orchestra - Don't Bring Me Down (1979)

bonus excellent cover version:

Buzzov*en - Don't Bring Me Down (1998)

The Cars kinda took from the same Atomic Rooster song. Listen how similar the lead vocals and rhythm guitar are in both 'I Can't Take No More' and The Cars' 'Bye Bye Love'.
