    I just heard a John Mayer song called Vultures. The chorus and the prominent guitar rif is very very similair to a song from the late 70s-80s. I know thats a huge window of time, but this song was popular and even though its before many of our time, we still probably heard it.

    The chorus from Vultures seems pretty much exactly like this song. I want to say the band that did it was a soul band with some pop appeal, because it was on the radio.

    If your good with musicians / songs and wanna help me out give his song a listen please. I know some of you guys know the song. :x:

    late 70s to early 80s is my sweet spot - so I guess that makes me the old man of the group. You damn kids get off my lawn!

    Anyway - I dont recognize any similarities to a particular song from that era. It does sound rather Steely Dan-ish though.
