Foreign influence

A minute ago Queen's song "I Go Crazy" (the non-album B-side to "Radio Ga Ga") came up randomly on my RealPlayer. Before I recognized the hook, I thought for a second that I was listening to a Van Halen song. It occurred to me that "I Go Crazy" was written and recorded in early '84, not too long after Brian May worked with Eddie Van Halen on the Starfleet Project album. Maybe I'm not imagining that stylistic influence after all.
