Opening guitar of A Sort of Homecoming and a Garbage song

Anyone else think the first few notes of Garbage's "Special" are quite a bit like "A Sort of Homecoming" by that little Irish band?

It's only like 2 seconds of the Garbage song.

Yeah similar chord pattern at the beginning there. I bet that's been used in thousands of songs though.

After all, there are only 8 notes in an octave minus the accidentals.

Yeah, I just realized "Slide" by the Goo Goo Dolls has a similar chord pattern, too.
