Check out Australia’s ‘Axis of Awesome’ Four chords video or performance (on YouTube). Loads of ideas. And of course the old classic ‘Heart and Soul’

Answer
Sue L., California

I love the Axis of Awesome’s performance of the 4-chord songs! I started writing down all the lyrics with the intent to be able to perform that myself. I wish they didn’t use bad language in the Youtube video so I could recommend it to my kids. It’s minimal but just enough to make a parent say “whaaaat??”

Answer
Sharlene H., Spain

I have only recommended it to one family but I did with a strong language warning. I figure the material is worth it and they can use it as a discussion with their kids about not using bad language!!? After all, let’s face it, it’s out there (esp in Australia!!! )

There is a “clean version” in YouTube.
Also, Google and Wikipedia are great places to look for answers. You’ll find lots more songs on lots more lists just via these Google searches:

I Love the Mountains has that same chord progression. Also I use the Honey Dew chord progression in the LH with RH playing melody of Heart and Soul.
