'''I-V-vi-IV.''' There's just something about these four chords that makes for a catchy tune in western pop music, transcending the boundaries of genre, and work in a song with any mood or tempo. This particular ordering of them, the "pop punk progression" as Wiki/{{Wikipedia}} calls it, was spawned as a variant of the DooWopProgression, and has been particularly popular from the 1990s to the present day. Actually OlderThanTheyThink - this progression is already known in the Baroque music. PachelbelsCanon is a variant of this progression, known as PachelbelsCanonProgression.

In a major key, this progression is I V vi IV. If we play them in a different order, vi IV I V, (A minor, F major, C major, G major)the progression sounds to be in the relative minor key (the key whose home note starts on the sixth note of its relative major key), in which case we notate it as i VI III VII. Occasionally, it's played starting with the subdominant major key: IV I V vi, (or VI III VII i relative to the minor), though this variation is less common than the tonic major and submediant minor versions. This version is sometimes called the "sensitive-female chord progression."
