Not sure if it's been mentioned already or if this even qualifies, but Monkey by Robert Plant, from Band of Joy album... a brilliant, deep song that could have been an outtake from Pop or Zoo sessions.   If you enjoy 90s U2 then take a listen...

Wow-- heard one on The Current tonight.  A band named Preoccupations, song called "Memory."  Just came out.  First part sounds like Nick Cave.  Minutes 3:44-7:00 sound an awful lot like good U2.

Not sure of the dates (which came first?) but the guitar riffs and main guitar melody on The Killers' Smile Like You Mean It sound almost identical to City Of Blinding Lights. Oh and on the non-falsetto vocal parts of Lemon ("slowly slipping under...') - Bono sounds so much Bowie, it's uncanny! :-)

Snapback by Old Dominion... Most of the song but the guitar solo is a nod to The Edge from Ultraviolet
