The same old chords

Ker-changgg! A chord yesterday. (Check bottom for credit)

Ever wondered why so much pop music sounds the bloody same?


Four chords.

That's all you need to have a chart hit.

Plus the backing of a huge corporation.

That usually helps too.

And if you don't believe me, here's Australia's Axis of Awesome proving my point.

The first one, anyway.

Hat tip to a Mr AN Other of Berlin for drawing our attention to the following vid, embedded on the Rake & Herald from the YouTube channel of somebody called random804.

Probably a robot with a name like that.

Or a dog that can talk.

Or walk.

F--k knows.

Anyway, I'm off for a shit.
