Another near co-occurrence of chord progression with a song from OK computer, this time with Bowie's "Life on Mars":

Paranoid Android:  Cm  G/B    Bb A Dm ...  A Dm ...
Life on Mars:      F   F/E  F/Eb D Gm Gm/F C F ...

The yellow bits are off by choice of major/minor, and the orange bits only line up on the root note, and the red bits don't match at all, but the feel is similar. That tension-creating VI chord in the fourth bar is what really hits me in both songs.
