The chorus to Waves by Dutch artist Mr Probz (released November 22, 2013) has the same relative chord progression (vi-V-iii-IV) as the chorus to Vanilla Fudge's cover of Keep Me Hangin' On (released 1967), Bryan Adams' It's Only Love, and Can't Hold Us by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (released August 16, 2011). The progression is also similar to the chorus from Missing You by Diana Ross (released November, 1984, and written by Lionel Richie).
Waves (:15) VS Can't Hold Us (2:31)
Waves (Mr Probz)
Chorus Chord Progression:
The Black Keys' Weight of Love (released January 27, 2015) from their eighth studio album Turn Blue is reminiscent of Neil Young's Down by the River (released May 14, 1969). Both songs begin in the key of D major, and feature staccato guitar rhythms that repeatedly move from E minor to A major (ii-V). This same intro progression can be found in Pink Floyd's Breathe (released March 1, 1973), which also seemingly appropriates the first half of Down by the River's chorus chord progression (Cmajor7-Bminor). Thanks to Justin Schack for suggesting this comparison!
