Van Halen "Top of the World" Sounds Like

Here's one I noticed, though from two different bands! Compare Van Halen's "Top of the World" guitar intro to Toto's "Afraid of Love" guitar intro...the tuning is a touch different, as is the timing, by just a little...but you would swear the music on these two was simply different takes of the same song, until the main "blast" kicks in!

Maybe Toto should sue Van Halen for this one...remember all the broo-ha-ha over Huey Lewis suing Ray Parker Jr. over "Ghostbusters" being too close to "I Want a New Drug?" A smell a new suit!
