I know this has probably been done, but the searchbar wasn't helping. But does anyone know some songs that have the same chord progression? One of my friends was playing a mash of 3 songs that had the same chord progression ("And We Danced" - The Hooters, "What I Like About You" - The Romantics, and "R.O.C.K. in the USA" - John Mellencamp) I know there's a bunch with the Pachelbel's Canon progression...and Wonderwall vs. Boulevard of Broken Dreams...but does anyone else know any other ones?

I've heard the G major chord is pretty popular in a lot of classic rock.

Lots of artists use simple progressions like:

I- vi - IV - V

Or something like that. There are only so many progressions that can be used and they're bound to be repeated, just maybe in a different key for some sort of change...

Most conventional music has the same harmonic progression and movements. There is no doubt that whatever song you're thinking of shares the same progression with countless other songs. This is because there is a fairly limited number of possible movements or paths within diatonic harmony.

Quote by Just Andrew

I- vi - IV - V

That's because the genre (do-wop) requires this specific progression. It's either I vi IV V or I vi ii V. Same goes for blues--always some variant of I IV V.

...modes and scales are still useless.

There's always that riff that is quite similar between Sunshine of Your Love, Cocaine, and You Really Got Me.

Music theory n00b.

The roman numerals represent the chord changes relative to the key.

Example: Blues: typically, I, IV, I, V, IV, I, V repeat

You could probably find a buuuunch of songs using the C-Am-F-G progression. I would post them as roman numeral intervals to make people think I'm super duper smart with theory, but I can't.
Fender Hot Rod Deluxe
Gibson Faded V
Warmoth Strat copy
Epiphone Hummingbird (FS!!)
Ibanez SR400QM
Fender BXR100

Another really common one is your classic G>Em, or any Major to Minor.

Most songs use this as a verse, before going to a minor bridge (Am) and then into the happy poppy chorus (G-D-C-D)

There's this one band in my town that always uses the (C-G-Am-F) progression, seriously, it's in like every song. They just put capos on different points

may not be the actual chord progression but we mash up mary janes last dance/wanna be a balla/regulators a lot its fun, different, and three songs that everyone knows. simple as hell just amin-g-d-amin

Actually, if i'm not mistaken, John Coltrane was actually inspired to write ornithology by how high the moon which is why the chords are similar. I can't quite recall where I read this but i did read or hear it somehwere.
