: Vehicle/Ides Of March----Blood Sweat & Tears
: I Can't Tell You Why/Eagles----Linda Rondstadt
I can't concur on I Can't Tell You Why but Jennifer Warnes sounded very Ronstadesque on Right Time of the Night.
Another BST soundalike was Keith Hampshire whose biggest hit was Day Time Night Time while Ian Thomas of Painted Ladies fame sounded not unlike Neil Young cited in this thread as an America influence - BTW America would cover the Ian Thomas disc Right Before Your Eyes.
Atlanta Rhythm Section could evoke Steely Dan - most emphatically on their final hit Alien.
I thought of Melanie when I first heard Bonnie Tyler's It's a Heartache altho - while it's a distinctly sounding song - I'd find Cyndi Lauper's All Through the Night a more adept evocation (however accidental) of Melanie.
Of course Irene Cara sounded like Donna Summer and Natalie Cole especially at the beginning of her career like Aretha (altho Sophisticated Lady is more Chaka Khan). And Polly Brown's Up in a Puff of Smoke could have been a vintage Supremes record down to its lead vocal. (I actually prefer Up... to the mid-70s releases of either Diana Ross or the Supremes).
