Truth of Touch vs Midnight Cowboy Theme Login/Join

From the moment I first listened to the Truth of Touch title track, I knew I recognized the beginning melody from somewhere else. At first I thought it was Yanni riffing himself, but then it hit me.

Listen to the main theme of the movie Midnight Cowboy by John Barry.

Here's Yanni:
Truth of Touch

Now John Barry:
Midnight Cowboy

The beginning motif is almost exactly the same with the rhythm being just a bit different.

Considering this is from a 1969 movie, I'm curious what led him to this. Maybe he heard it some time ago and it came back to Yanni when writing this song and never realized this portion was similar.

Your thoughts?
