Have you ever had that nagging feeling that you’ve heard a song before but you can’t place exactly where? Yeah, that happens to me all the damn time! Well, the comedy troupe Axis Of Awesome decided to put together a song that showed just how big of a phenomenon this is. By playing the same four chords over and over (changing the tempo at one point), they sing the lyrics to several of the most popular songs of the last 30-ish years. Now, they clearly changed the key for some of these songs, but the fundamental principal remains. Although I was laughing very hard, I was also somewhat depressed by this. Is this really all it takes to write music these days?
