The beginning of the chorus is similar to "Roar": http://youtu.be/nZ_aALzzGjs?t=49s
This must have been revenge for having copied the verses of "We are never ever getting back together" hahaha

Btw this topic was actually about how Max and his writers are using the same melodies in different songs but I like your examples too!

good find!. its a shame the pre-chorus is so weak/generic, otherwise it would be a great song.

by the way, not max martin, but the first bars of this chorus are similar to firework by katy perry

"firework" reminds me of a song by erasure, i can't figure out which one. I also find chorus from "My life would suck without you" and "who knew" quite similar

Also MLWSWY and International Smile: "You got a piece of me" vs. "That girl's a trip"

Yup... Katy Perry - Firework and Erasure - Always have the same pre-chorus.

There aren't so many songs with samples actually, and some of them are just a phrase  :-\. It might be a coincidence those 3 words in the tv commercial and in california gurls. btw, i was listening to "I knew you were trouble", and the way she sings "i Knew you Were" reminds me of wrecking ball "We clawed, we chained"

It's the style of the melody. Those songs have the verses full of leaps, rather than steps/half-steps, with a very repetitive pattern. It also happens in Your Body by Christina Aguilera.

Nothing credited as a sample, so I think it doesn't count...
