"Vertigo" by U2 sounded awfully familiar when it first came on the radio in 2004.

Cryptomnesia happens when you write a work of authorship, such as a book or a song. You think it's your own work, but it turns out you were unknowingly recalling something you had read or heard years before.

Was it an accident, or did U2 copy the Supremes and Stone Temple Pilots, and did Coheed and Cambria copy U2?

A. Supremes - You Keep Me Hangin' On
B. Vanilla Fudge - You Keep Me Hangin' On
C. Kim Wilde - You Keep Me Hangin' On
D. U2 - Vertigo
E. Pino P vs U2 - You Keep Me Hangin' On
F. Stone Temple Pilots - Sex Type Thing
G. Coheed and Cambria - The Hound (of Blood and Rank)

The zooming effect in the opening sequence is from the film "Vertigo" by Alfred Hitchcock.
