    Exclamation Help!!

    I need to do my uni assignment but to do that i need to get two more examples of english songs. I'd put it in the English section but I thought more people would visit the lounge :D

    All i want are songs that are made up of the following chords (can be verse only or chorus only)

    A song that uses the chord A minor as well as some of the following chords in its sequence
    E minor/G major/D major/A major

    And a second song that uses the chord E major as well as some of these chords in its sequence
    E minor/G major/D major/A major/A minor/C major

    also i do not want songs that require chords outside of the ones listed below if thats possible :D.

    i cant think of any song that has an A minor and E major with those chord combinations but there must be a song that exists and i'm asking you guys and gals to tell me if you know of any

    I always thought this song is in C# and goes like C#, G# and F#...

    Talking of Bryan Adams, and given you do like his work, try On A Day Like Today (Am, G, C, Em, D), I'm Ready (G, Em, F, Am, D, C), Back to You (C, Am, G, F, E, Em): don't mind the 'F' - it's inevitable in the C major key, and Bryan has used this key in a lot many songs.

    If I'm not going too far, you may also try Two Steps Behind by Def Leppard (A, D, G, E, F#m) and Tequila Sunrise by the Eagles (G, D, Am D7, Em, C) - these are all some famous acoustic numbers.

    Hope this helps!

    Many times I've lied, many times I've listened
    Many times I've wondered how much there is to know...
    Mellow is the man who knows what he's been missing
    Many many men can't see the open road...
    Many is a word that only leaves you guessing
    Guessing 'bout a thing you really ought to know...

    it does up to a point, i have to make a interactive learning system so iv got the chord lessons where the person learns them one by one so i have the order (and songs)

    Gmajor (Nirvana - About A Girl/Em G)
    Dmajor (REM - Everybody Hurts/D G)
    Amajor (Beatles - Twist And Shout/D G A)
    Aminor (Bryan Adams - On a Day Like Today[thanks prash!])
    Cmajor (Metallica - Nothing Else Matters)
    Emajor (???)

    so you see since the software is aimed at a complete beginner i cant introduce the F major chord since it is one of the most difficult chords to play when you start to play the guitar. It took me two months before i could consistently hit that chord good. I'll switch the A minor and C major slides so that means that the Bryan Adams song can work prash thank you

    now i need just a song for E major, the only one i know is Wicked Game by Chris Isaak but then thats got a B minor in it :(
