Some observations:

-Has anybody noticed that Half-Truism and Hammerhead have the same guitar notes at the beginning but just are at a different pitch?

-Also "A Lot Like Me" reminds me of "Gone Away" to the point where I find myself singing Gone Away during the chorus of A Lot Like Me

-Oh yeah and two songs on the album start with the words "I am the One" (Trust in You and Hammerhead)

-It's been well noted that Why Don't You Get a Job sounds like the Beatles Ob-la-di Ob-la-da, but has anybody other than me noticed that Amazed has the same notes as the Beatles "While My Guitar Gently Weeps"?

Half Truism actually has different notes from Hammerhead (Im not talking about the pitch, they are actually different), theres three set of notes in the intro, whereas HH has the same notes the entire time.

but yeah, they do sound similar.

A Lot Like Me also reminded me of Gone Away. Only in its structure though. The chord progression is different, so singing the chorus over it wouldn't really work. Amazed has the same notes as While My Guitar...because they're both in Am. The chord progressions are different though.

The realms of every song in the universe sounds like a bunch of other ones?

No More Lies by Iron Maiden (2003) sounds exactly like Amazed.

Listen to it here (http://media.putfile.com/Iron-Maiden---No-More-Lies--Offspring---Amazed)

yea theres obviously a similarity, but the beatle dont start off saying " my friend has a girl and he hates that bitch!" haha still a good song. Gone away and a lot like me not so much

Does anyone else think of the song Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol when they hear the first line of the chorus of Fix You? (i.e. "I wish I could fix you" - "If I lay here, if I just lay here")

In addition to two songs starting with "I am the one," four songs mention rain in some way like some way:

Half-Truism - "All the slings and arrows that rain on your mind."
A Lot Like Me - "And the rain comes / And the world is on my head."
Kristy - "Oh, clouds of time/ Seem to rain on/ Innocence left behind.
Fix You - "All God's tears for her they cry / And I am in her rain."

It's almost like some sort of motif when 1/3 of the songs use that imagery. Dexter must have been a little depressed to keep thinking like this while he was in Hawaii and Southern California, ha.;)

Trust in You is definitely All I Want meets Smash. Can't Repeat is like TKAA. That's about it.
