A french site chartinfrance just found that the new song of Plain White T's, in some parts, looks realy like Side.
Actually the verse looks like the Side's chorus.
Here's the link to their video:
1,2,3,4

What do you think of that?
I find it really obvious especially in the gitar solo.

Wow, that does seem like a... tribute. Except maybe the band you're paying tribute to might not quite like it when you straight up take their melody note for note ;) You're right, that guitar that starts at 2:09 sounds like they're just playing Side! I actually shouldn't say that they took it note for note, because it's not exactly the same... but it is pretty similar. I wonder if they have ever mentioned Travis as an influence.

wow, i never realized that, but it is indeed quite obvious... could easily be a coincidence, tho.

plus, they stole the name of the song from feist:
