Hi – I am fascinated by the database that matches songs to popular chord progressions, but all the songs that claim to go with that progression just don’t seem to. Am I missing something?
For example, under the Pachelbel progression (I, V, vi, iii), it lists Katy Perry’s Fireworks, but no where in Fireworks do I find anything like that progression.
(Aside, the Pachelbel progression really needs 8 chords (I, V, vi, iii, IV, I, IV (or ii), V), not just the four.)
Another example, under the “Most Popular Progression” (I, V, vi, IV) we get Green Day’s Boulevard of Broken Dreams as an example of this “Most Popular Progression”, yet no where in that song do I find anything close to this progression (doesn’t even have I V).
Am I missing something?
I really think this capability is totally cool, but if the list isn’t accurate, it’s hard to get on board.
