Tip on songs of a certain chord progression?

Hello

I would like to learn songs that have a similar chord progression to “all of me” and “who’s sorry now”. Does anybody here know what songs I should listen to? It’s too much work to just transcribe songs and find out that the chord progression isn’t the one I’m looking for. :(

Best regards

Murillo

    Murillo, it seems to me that you may be asking about songs that feature a I to III7 (eg, C to E7) progression?

    Right off the top of my head, I can think of "Sunny Side of the Street" and "Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter" and "Five Foot Two" ...or old pop hits like "Abilene" and "Hello Mary Lou, Goodbye Heart"...

    I think "Nobody Knows You When You're Down & Out" has that same I-III motif

    Yesterday (well, sorta...)

    And you can check out the chord changes for yourself for hundreds more 20th century jazz standards at this website:

    (I take it that for some reason you find this chord change particularly appealing?)

    Thanks again.

    I do like it but the main reason is that I have a little bit of problem improvising over this particularly chord progression and would like to listen how other people play over it.

    Best regards
