Brave...or Roar?

Sara Bareielles "Brave" was an instant hit when it hit the airwaves and then came along Katy Perry's "Roar" stirring up a controversy. Many critics said the songs sounded exactly the same!

In fact, Sara stated "I don't feel like anything was taken from me artistically.  I wasn't the one having any problems with it."...you be the judge! Take a listen!

Now, compare it to Katy Perry's "Roar"...

I think maybe the only similar area is the beginning chords, otherwise they both have their own sound. Maybe just some critics trying to make a buzz just like the Robin Thicke, Marvin Gaye fiasco!
