N.O./B.S.

When I heard “Electronic Renaissance” by Belle & Sebastian, it immediately struck me as familiar, but I wasn’t sure why. Someone else had a song just like it, I kept thinking, but who? Turns out, the song I was thinking of is “Procession” by New Order. Here they are side-by-side:

Is it me, or do these songs sound remarkably similar?
