Hey, everyone....

I've proven to myself yet again that my ability to search the UU forums sucks. I'm looking for a thread I recall reading months ago about all the old songs from the 50s and 60s that can be played using one chord progression.... C, Am, F, G7.

As I recall there were tons of cool songs that fit that one progression. Now if I could only find the list of them before my uke group meeting tonight! We're doing "Runaround Sue" by Dion, amongst other songs tonight, and I thought I'd be able to show folks lots of other songs that fit the same chord progression.

Leave it to me to wait until the last minute. Any chance anyone could help me find this thread?

Okay, I figured out that the song "Monster Mash" fits perfectly. I know there are many more. Anybody?

Thanks, JT, but that's the wrong thread. C, Am, F, G7 is what I'm after, and fits with what we commonly refer to as the "oldies".

C, G, Am, F is a very similar progression, but the songs that fit are all from the 70s, 80s and beyond. I appreciate the try, though.

Gotta leave for uke group in a little over an hour. Maybe someone will be able to help me find it by then. Then I can look like I know what I'm talking about at uke group tonight! =)

I may have stumbled on a couple more. "Oh, Donna" and "Teenager in Love" both seem to work. I'm still looking for more!

Thanks for the try, Melissa....but that's not quite it. I did come up with another song that fits perfectly, but I can't remeber the lyrics or the whole title. The title has the word "Catalina" in it, and it's a very catchy, bouncy beach-type song.....which is now stuck in my head! At least I can whistle it....

Cool! Thanks! It may be a stretch, but I'm thinking maybe "Duke of Earl", too....

Nope, I don't think it is. JT thought it might be too. He posted it earlier:
