4 Chords video

(This userpic isn't exactly true here...)

I just saw this video, and it was the first time I'd ever heard the song. I thought a few of you might also be new to it... A hilarious compilation of pop songs which use the same 4-chord harmonic progression. :)

4 Chords by Axis of Awesome:

That may be one of the most amusing/awesomest vids/songs I've ever seen.

I know, right? I burst out in laughter several times. It reminds me a lot of the famous Pachelbel's Canon song.

I found this as I was going through shardsofblu's friends list, and it was so funny I just had to leave a comment. They could just make a completely new song with these ones!

U2's "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" seems like a better fit than "With or Without You", but I know nothing about chords and harmonic progression, so maybe I'm not really the right person to be nitpicking. ;)

Have you seen the Pachelbel rant? Similar stuff, only with a little bit of stand-up comedy thrown in. :)

:D I would have to get onto my piano to see if "Still Haven't Found" has the same progression... will get back to you!

Anyway, this does remind me a lot of the Pachelbel rant... and I just mentioned that to another commenter, too. Great minds, eh? :D

Thanks for dropping by! I think we share several friends in common. :)

Best vid I've seen since the Pachelbel rant!

Jan. 24th, 2009 09:22 pm (UTC)
And more songs, too, I think! :D
Jan. 24th, 2009 09:36 pm (UTC)
OMG that was hilarious! I don't know much about music so I never would've noticed that on my own.

And the picture of Aha made me LOL. Gratuitous butt shot anyone?

The Aha part was my favorite!

Well, who knew!!? Great video, I know all those songs, too!!:D:D
Jan. 24th, 2009 10:59 pm (UTC)
I knew a lot more than I would have expected, that's for sure! :)
Jan. 24th, 2009 11:49 pm (UTC)
That is freaking HILARIOUS! I'm posting it on my flist to reach the few people there that don't visit you blog.
Jan. 25th, 2009 12:00 am (UTC)
Isn't it, though? I love finds like this. :)
Jan. 25th, 2009 12:20 am (UTC)
That is a riot! Who knew all those songs used the same 4 chord progression. Thanks for sharing!
Jan. 25th, 2009 12:26 am (UTC)
You're welcome! I'm glad you found it as amusing as I did. :)
Jan. 25th, 2009 01:52 am (UTC)
How hilarious! rat and I laughed hard!

And they harmonized sometimes - yay!

Gonna have to put this in one of my YouTube playlists!
Jan. 25th, 2009 02:29 am (UTC)
Completely hilarious, right? I'm tempted to look for the audio for my iPod. :D
Jan. 25th, 2009 02:34 am (UTC)
LOL! I actually also thought at the beginning it was "Don't stop believing" and I didn't even know half of these songs, but some of them were truly priceless...
Richard Marx, The Calling, Lighthouse Family, Maroon 5, U2, the Beatles... ?!?

Awesome find :D

ETA: And now I had to look up Pachelbel's rant and it's sooo awesome, too. Seems like U2 grabbed that, too ;)

Both of those songs are so much fun! I actually went searching for Axis of Awesome's music and found out they have a MySpace and an online store. I think I'm going to share their music later. :)

LOL! I about died laughing when I saw this! Pure awesome!!

(but what is this Pachelbel rant everyone is talking about?! I know the canon, of course, but the RANT?! O_o)

Oh, you must become educated!
