It does not. 

The only thing they have in common is the general downward arc of the first phrase - but 
they don't share even the same intervals, right from the start, plus one is in major and one 
is in minor. 

Lensky's first phrase is a literal scale that loops around at the end. Jose sings a downward 
arpeggio pattern that ends jumping back upward with a bit of a scale passage. 

No match there whatsoever.  Except that both tunes head downward. That's not enough.
