My friends and I have discussed this for years, but it’s awesome to see them compiled like that. We’ve noticed the same thing with R.O.C.K. In the U.S.A., What I Like About You and a few others which use the same chords. A friend of mine who plays guitar used to string them together for fun.
One of my favorite music instructors used to say “The best composer is the best thief”
i like it:)
Mike: The quote is, “Good artists borrow, great artists steal”, which I’ve seen credited to several people, but I like to think came from Pablo Picasso.
I once did a sequence of “Oh, Stick you, your mamma too and your Daddy” by Daphne and Celeste mashed with “Enter Sandman”, by Metallica. Like a glove.
One of my favorites is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7O3Z00jn47M
There are only a limited number of ways you can do a chord progression and make it still sound like pop or rock. The standard rock progression is the I-IV-V progression like C-F-G sometimes they add the VI A-minor. You can do it in different keys but if you move around the progressions then it does not sound like a rock song. If you do a I-IV-V7 in which you make the last chord G7th then you get the blues. A jazz progression would be II-V-I or D-minor-G-C, more complex jazz uses 7th and 9th chords. The term rock came from the rocking back and forth between two chords like C and G. Which is a standard 50s progression. So if you play different chord progressions then you end up with different styles of music.
