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.

House of the rising sun has like one of the most common chord progressions ever?

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.

Death Don't Have No Mercy by Rev. Gary Davis

really cool progression IMO
"The man that hath no music in himself, nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds, is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils. The motions of his spirit are dull as night, and his affections dark as Erebus. Let no such man be trusted."

Crow and cackle by the dear hunter

The chorus is I vi bVI ii V

I really like how it sounds

"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.
