Music Journey: Overused chords

Here are 6 wonderful friends who bunched together to sing parts of 6 different songs which have the same 4 chords to them. I showed this video on Plurk and my camp-mates. Some went wow over it. The 6 peeps are:

I hope I got most of the links correct… The songs are namely:

  • Where is the Love – Black Eyed Peas
  • No One – Alicia Keys
  • Realize – Colbie Caillat & Jason Reeves
  • Superman – Five For Fighting
  • I’m Yours – Jason Mraz
  • She Will Be Loved – Maroon 5

Not convinced? Try the next video. 36 songs using the same 4 chords:
