Discuss.

Irony: My favourite song constructed from four chords is this one. I don't usually like normal-people music, but the comedic timing and incongruity basically makes this one so much more than than the sum of its' parts.

Hey. It's a good chord progression that flows back in on itself smoothly. It makes sense that a lot of artists would be attracted to using it.
