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. :)

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. :)

"Still Haven't Found" lacks one of the four chords - it only uses three. :)

In this video, they are using:

E -- B -- C#m -- A

And if I use the same chords to sing SHFWILF (lol, that looks weird), then it's just E, B and A. Not sure what the original key was, though.

Hee, okay. I'll take your word for it. :D
