Four Chords – Thirty Six Songs

axisofawesomeIt’s no secret that many songs use the same chord structure. “Four Chords” by Australian music comedy trio, The Axis Of Awesome (Jordan Raskopoulos, Lee Naimo and Benny Davis) illustrates that point beautifully, starting with a song that really owns these four chords, Don’t Stop Believin’ by Journey.

Here’s a complete list of all the songs used (I’m guessing it skews a little more heavily towards popular Australian artists who us Americans might not be as familiar with).
