There is a Rhodes or similar keyboard sound in both. The similarity end there, for me. It's a good APA song, tho.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

Try singing DP over it the first minute or so: similiarity is also there and pretty striking in the chords progression. Could be a coincidence though.
