Hey, a question for some of you music theorists out there (and others who know).

I'm compiling a list of songs that are built around a certain chord progression.
"A list of songs all featuring the same chord progression?? You must be crazy!"

Well, okay. It's not the exact same chord progression, because it's in different keys. But the pattern is the same.
The chord progression in the key of C is C-G-Am-F. Some songs built around it...

Blink 182 - Dammit, and some others
The Beatles - Let It Be (verses)
Bush - Glycerine
Bush - Machinehead (the chorus...this one's in E flat)
Journey - Don't Stop Believing (key of E)
Dead Moon - It's Okay
The Police - So Lonely
Jars of Clay - The Valley Song (certain parts of it)
Fort Minor - Where'd You Go (key of A)

As you can see, artists of varying genres have all ripped off the same chord progression. It's catchy.
So does anyone know of any other songs built on this progression? Thanks.
