Does this sound like Take me out from Franz Ferdinand?

by Jay Morris

Here is a riff from a new song from Paloma Faith's called "Can't Rely on You" being produced by Pharrell 

Now here is a riff from Franz Ferdinand's "Take me out"

Sound close to you? Over the weekend Franz Ferdinand frontman Alex Kapranos tweeted  telling Pharrell  that all he had to do was ask if he wanted to "borrow a riff". Kapranos has apologized, and said the twitterverse is to blame for stirring this up. Kapranos insists there isn't a riff between he and Pharrell. 

Listening to these maybe Kapranos is a bit too forgiving
