Songs with interesting chord progressions?

I'm kind of tired of every song having the same music, but being faster in happy songs and slow in sad songs. I'm looking for fairly modern songs that have rarely used music. Those influenced by classical like "Because" by The Beatles or folk-based songs like "The House of the Rising Sun" by The Animals are good examples. Thanks.

Ok then not the 2, 3, or 4 chords per progression that every pop song has. And I only know of one other song with its progression.

When the Sun Goes Down by the Arctic Monkeys has some pretty cool chords.

first thing that comes to mind is the outro to Sir Psycho Sexy by Red Hot Chili Peppers

"Interstate Love Song" by Stone Temple Pilots

Dean DeLeo uses some cool jazz like chords during the verse progression. The timing is a bit hard to get down just right with the dead stroke rhythm. Give it a try.
