Ahh I think maybe I found the link you were talking about ?!http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=4642323828862705956
And yes that would be me lol .. A few years ago …
And I’d like your guys opinion on my track… Because I think it was unfairly rejected … The only similarities I hear in these two songs are the fact that they both use a piano… Actually listening to it now I don’t even hear a similarity in the chord progression.. Do you??

Hi Joe, I must agree with you. It’s the same chord progression and there is a piano. But I would never say it’s the same tune. All that I could say is that the song is a sound-alike. And Audiojungle has a plenty of sound-alikes….
I can suggest you to improve the song with some new arrangements. You know whistle, clapping, ukelele,...sorry just joking But maybe using different chord inversions, adding new instruments,...And a couple of funny videos about similar chord progressions:
Thanks David! I will check out those videos you mentioned. You’re right though the world desperately needs some more clapping, whistling, ukelele songs right now!!
Haha, uh oh. I have a song in the queue with the exact same progression (I mean, C, G/B, Em, F, that’s what you got in your Motivational Piano Tune). And I was already worried it might sound too similar to something but I’m not sure what. But as Rosier pointed out there are many was to make a song unique besides chord progression and my song is very different from yours. In fact it is a ukulele, whistling, clapping song! No joke. Except the whistling is a Toy Piano and the clapping is snapping… I figured I gotta give it a shot if that’s what the people want, I don’t care. I can do all sorts of crazy genres but I’d like to make some money. Sorry, getting side tracked…
