hard to identify Simple minds ripoff

what's that song ? Who ripped off "new gold dream" keyboard line ?

At the pub quizz the other week, we were asked to identify some songs. One of them had an intro that sounded very much like Simple Minds' "New Gold Dream" but it wasn't the eighties band (Jim Kerr and Co).

Over the general brouhaha all I could gather about the correct answer was "open your eyes". I guess it's the title of the song and not the artist but I can't be 100% affirmative.

Is there someone who heard that song, noticed the similarity with "New Gold Dreams" and can tell me who did than soundalike ?
