Best. Chord progression. Ever.

If you’re one of the 7 million that have seen this video you know that certain chord-progressions repeat themselves.  A lot.  (Even if that Pachelbel comedian guy really overstates his case: buncha those songs don’t even have those chords).

Here’s my favorite: D-G-D-G-Em-A-D-G .

Examples?:

Radiohead – No Surprises
Wilco – Ashes of American Flags
R.E.M. – Everybody Hurts
The Decemberists – Red Right Ankle
