Songs with the same beat

I'm looking for songs with the same drum beat (on the hi-hat) as this one. Any time period or genre is OK.

Just to be clear, are you looking for songs with that beat actually played on the hi hat, or just songs that contain that particular rhythm?

If the latter, there's the march from Gustav Holst's First Suite.

As klausman suggested, if it's the rhythm of the melody/lyrics you're trying to match, then I give you Nugget in a Biscuit. If not, I regret the earworm.

(the pattern is somewhat similar to Maracatu de nação rhythm that comes from northeast Brasil - here is an example and a tutorial. The rhythm has been incorporated into various songs - Blondie's Island of Lost Souls for example. It is also influential in "Give it up" by the Goodmen - sampled as the rhythmic basis for the above-mentioned "Fairground")
