Songs that sound like they could have been by Gorillaz!

So, since there's a thread about non-Blur songs that sound like Blur songs, let's discuss non-Gorillaz songs that sound like Gorillaz! Especially since Damon has admitted to being convinced that Gorillaz had a huge influence on pop music after Demon Days was released. Let's go! I'll start us off.

There's a short little funk interlude in the middle of Foxygen's Shuggie that sounds like it could have been written for the first two Gorillaz albums.

Dumbo Gets Mad's album Elephants at the Door has songs that sound a lot like songs Gorillaz could have made for Plastic Beach as well (Marmalade Kids, Eclectic Prawn, Raymond Play, etc).

Knights of Shame by AWOLNATION sounds like a song that could have been on Demon Days or D-Sides at parts, ESPECIALLY that rap part in the middle (this one is probably the second most obvious one)

A large part of Gotye's discography sounds like it was influenced by Gorillaz too and the majority of Beck's catalogue has had quite a big influence on Gorillaz and Damon Albarn in general. Check My Machine by Paul McCartney definitely had a big influence on the direction Damon Albarn took with the first Gorillaz record.
