Last week we celebrated Mother Earth, but since we all live on her, why not keep serenading her? In this blog post we’ll provide you with a few songs that are written using a I-V-vi-IV chord progression. Yeah, that’s poppy indeed!

Mother Earth is Fuckin’ Perfect

She has it all: oxygen, water, sand, blue skies, beautiful sunsets. What can you say except Mother Earth is perfect. Just like the I-V-vi-IV chord progression, which we discussed in depth in our chord progression of the month article. Luckily for us, Pink wrote a song that fits both.

No One – Alicia Keys

There’s no one like her. That’s why you can say Earth is the mother of all mothers. When you sit down behind your keys, just take a moment to imagine how you would feel if you were her. Too much? Ah, no worries. Just jam along with Alicia Keys’ “No One”, and you’ll know what’s up.

Cruise – Florida Georgia Line

The fun part about having Earth as your parent is that you practically never leave home. Mom’s always looking out for you. She has her occasional periods of joy and sadness of course, but in the end she’s always there. Even when you decide to cruise around with your windows down.

Rockstars – Malik Harris

Like any parent we think our planet is pretty proud of her kids, especially when she feels the vibes pumping through her core. Call it what you want, but rock stars make people happy, and happy people are good to each other. The main takeaway here is that the 2022 Eurovision Songfestival entree of Germany covers the load.

More = More

If you’re looking for some more I-V-vi-IV chord progression inspiration we suggest you check out songs like “Beast of Burden” by the Rolling Stones and “Glycerine” by Bush. Both tracks are written in the key of E major. Want a bit more contemporary pop? No worries, “Demons” by Imagine Dragons and “Scar” by Missy Higgins might be just the songs you’re searching for.
