Earworm: Hey Soul Sister

It's the chord progression that is in everything! While it is true that many songs share the basic chord progression with Pachelbel's "Canon in D," generally they use it in a way that each spin sounds relatively fresh. Having played the violin for several years, I have always been drawn to songs that share that foundation. "Hey Soul Sister" by Train is the latest in a long line, and runs through my head on a fairly regular basis until it mixes with another song that has the same foundation. It is earworm incarnate.

This guy hates the song. It makes for good comedy.

What does his untrimmed chest have to do with anything?

I don't know about his untrimmed chest, but I do love that song!
