The breakdown riff for Beat It is the exact same riff used in Midway Creatures! Coincidence or homage, I wonder?

Congratulations on a great rendition of Beat It by the way. I've always thought of this riff as among the best ever written. I even thought Steve's solo was more appropriate than Van Halen's original, which I find a little mechanical in retrospect.
