What song or songs sound like This Will Be Our Year by The Zombies

My boyfriend and I were driving up to NJ on Sunday, and I was playing The Zombies - Odessy and Oracle. When the song "This Will Be Our Year"
came on, my boyfriend became obsessed with the idea that it sounds very much like another song. (Not a cover -- just another song that is similar in chord progression and melody.) I think he may be right -- but we've so far come up lacking as far as figuring out what that song could be.
We think it MIGHT be some sort of power poppish thing from the 70's or perhaps early 80's (Nick Lowe? Elvis Costello?) or maybe something like Weezer, or maybe something like Queen? Something with a very similar piano-based chord progression and vocal line - but maybe with a guitar playing the solo/lead?
Help! It's driving us berserk!
