Chord progression

Just listening to episode #82 where Gina points out how much Natalie Imbruglia’s “Torn” sounds like the Black-Eyed Peas’ “Where is the Love”, and that chord progression is something I’ve noticed ever since hearing Pachelbel’s Canon in D. That chord progression is used all over, and it seems Pachelbel started the fire.
By the way, “Torn” was ripped off from a band called Ednaswap without their permission, so that’s about as derivitave as you get.
