Does anyone here get a strange sense of déjà-vu when listening to the chorus of Running Scared? That opening line with the sudden high note in the middle reminds me of a song which has the very same rhythm and a quite similar melody.
I'd say it was by a female singer, between 5 or 10 years ago but I might be completely wrong about that. Not sure if it was in English or in French though, which might be make things tricky for most people here.
For those who don't have the song in mind, it's on YT :
