Seriously, it seems like every other AOR band has a song with this exact same melody. Did I miss any that sound just like these songs? Anyone know of any other AOR songs with this exact same tune?

Haha, cool thread. Nicely collated. Never heard of AWOL or Soldier but I'm kind of interested in that Soldier stuff. Seems like they're very christian, but is that a good album? Something worth checking out?


That Spys song is dangerously identical...

haha very good find, well in my opinion, maybe it's because the chord progression of C - Am - F - G or C - Am - F - C is very sensible for AOR/pop rock stuffs hence many writers found it basic to implement this thing and try to swing with other chords in the bridge and chorus.


Anyway, nice thread :D
