http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FW4e5KgcK4Q the intro same with ''Dark Horse''

Hmmm it's not a rare melody and the harmonies are totally different. Therefore I wouldn't let this count :D

r u seriuous? there is alot of sampled stuff

I mean, there are just 8 songs there, not much if you count like 20 number one hits and a lot more of 40 top songs..
btw, i remember another similitud between "Beauty and a beat" and "time machine", in the part where they sing "So all I need/Cause all I need" during the chorus

Also, birthday' "You know that I'm the girl that you should call" verse sounds a bit like "never met a girl like you before" (Edwyn Collins), i'm not sure about this anyway

The whole feeling is so different. Firstly the chord progression, secondly the position of this particular melody. In Katy's song it's the final line before the chorus, in Edwyn's song it's the beginning line of each verse.

Even though it's just a remake, one can hear a similarity between the beginning of this song (only the first second) and  the beginning of a new song by Max Martin, Dr. Luke & Cirkut ;)

Good ears my Spanish friend :D

I mean it's not only the same note, it's also a similar atmosphere

The original song was written by Frank Ocean.

I fucking love Brandy, she's the best in the game.

I think there are a number of Martin/Luke songs that use snippets of files from other songs.  Dr. Luke has a great interview with ASCAP 2011 where he talks about listening to audio files of songs and using them in other songs.  It's a great interview and he has his computer with him to show what he's referring to. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d15TvXXd_3Y&feature=share&list=UUlEa60-tjgRin9Zt7T9Ndng   I've noticed a lot of similarities with The One That Got Away and I Knew You Were Trouble.   
The similarity in  pop songs is what initially got me interested in Max Martin.  I wondered why so many hit songs sounded like a specific style and started looking at song credits, etc. and discovered they all had one person in common.  I think it's great that he's finally showing up more in public appearances and people are remembering his name.  It's nice to see he's up for 2 2014 GRAMMYs with Song of the Year/Roar, along with Luke, Bonnie McGee, Katy Perry and Henry Walter.  Taylor Swift's RED is up for Album of the Year.

Rebekah, i also believe that they use snippets.  In "Roar", during the second verse, when katy says "You held me down but I got up" the second time, a "dada" can be heard, and it kinda sounds like the "dadadada's" in please don't leave (P!nk)
