Here's an interesting one: "Lost In Emotion" by Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam resembles a combination of Mary Wells chestnuts: "The One Who Really Loves You" & "You Beat Me To The Punch." I believe Full Force was intentionally going for that.
Also, many ballads by Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes could pass as songs by the Dells, as Teddy Pendergrass had a very similar husky voice like Marvin Junior.
When Expose hit in 1993 after a change in the lineup and music style, the biggest hit they had, "Never Get Over You Getting Over Me" always sounded to me like Wilson Phillips.
The song of theirs that really sounded like Wilson Phillips was their AC hit from early 1994, "In Walked Love". That one reminded me a lot of "Impulsive". Yeah, the new Expose definitely harmonized more than the original line-up.
