Hi Hivemind, which songs are similar to E.T. by Katy Perry?

The beat is the same as Queen's "We Will Rock You". What kinds of similarities are you looking for?

I'm not sure, definitely the beat but also maybe the style of singing?

ET sounds like a straight up rip off of Tatu's All the Things She Said, for one. Like, straight up rip off.

Enter the Ninja by Die Antwoord kind of scratches my alien-voice itch...? It was the first song I thought of in answer to your question...

Perhaps Gary Numan was an inspiration?

Seconding the entire oeuvre of Tatu.

I was really into "E.T." because I love female vocalists belting out overly enunciated lyrics, I love drum machines and synthesizers, and I love late '90s Europop. So when I think about other artists that do some of those things, these are some of the songs that come to mind:

Robyn, Indestructible
Natalia Kills, Wonderland
Marina and the Diamonds, Savages
Tiƫsto feat. Tegan And Sara, Feel It In My Bones
Halsey, Colors
David Guetta feat. Nicki Minaj, Turn Me On
Florence and the Machine, Breath of Life
Melanie Martinez, Pity Party
(and primarily sung by a male vocalist, but) Justin Bieber feat. Nicki Minaj, Beauty and a Beat
