    oddly, it was through TB that I first found this! I quite liked it, and I love the tune too.

    That would have been funnier if he hadn't been playing guitar the whole time. I had to quit halfway because that's all I could focus on. "Why does he keep playing that?" I kept thinking. Maybe later it says something, but I hate repetative tunes. :meh:

    Funny :)
  7. That was the whole point. The fact that not only are those chords repeated ad nauseum in the work but those chords are part of so many other songs that you can't escape them.

    I'm jumping on the "that was really funny" bandwagon because I must admit that it really was. :)
    My wife and I talked about it after I watched it ( guffawing loudly as I watched) and she confirmed that those same chords/notes were used in many songs in many areas of music. I thought that was pretty strange. Maybe that's why those songs got popular? Who knows?
    Anyway, that guy was great and was a pretty good geetar player/singer.

    he transposed some though, to fit that key. i believe basket case starts on Eb, not D... but still, same progression (almost).

    anyway, he was wrong about the VH1 reference to the Baroque in the 1790s. the Baroque period started in about 1600 and lasted until about 1750. 1790 was during the Classical period .
  14. Good stuff. :)

    Surprised he didn't mention JerryC, one of the first YouTube phenoms:

    I loved the "He's the original one hit wonder" part :)
  17. That was friggin' hilarious. Never realized how many songs used that progression. That guy's delivery was spot on too, I'd like to hear more from him.

    I'm sure the joke would have been much funnier if he had said the proper year rather than one that parodied the actual "I love the 90s" VH1 show :eyebrow:

    I'm not weird but I found myself playing bass along with him. I realized that "Do you know...where you're going to" yada yada - by the Supremes chick, uses the progression too.
  20. He was witty and original, but he kept saying, "Pak-a-bell."

    Isn't the composer's name pronounced, "Pak-el-bell?"

    10 points off! :D
