Last Monday I started messing around with
Am E7 F      C  Am E7  F         C
Am E7 F      C  Am E7  F        [C   C7]
F  Fm C      C  E7 E7  Am        A7
Dm G [C G/B] Am Bo Bo [E7 ?/F#] [?/G E7/G#]

so today I tried recording it:
http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~jcreed/music/jcreed%20-%20Five%20Hours%20and%20a%20Rain%20Cloud.mp3

This was at the piano in the Wm. Pitt Union; you can hear some people talking and even clapping at the very end. I like how that makes it sound like a real live concert recording or something.

For bonus points, guess the popular mid-nineties single that has the same basic 4-chord progression, which I only noticed after I had written down the whole song.

Hot!  That's fantastic.

Mister jcreed, you need to write more music.  Much, much more music.

The solution, you will find, is really just him recording more.

How else do you think he gets TEH LADIES?

It reminds me of an Eric Clapton song that I can't remember the name of.

Ooh, I could almost see that. It wasn't the one I was thinking of, but these things get recycled so much that you might be right anyway.

Part of it sounds to me like Alanis Morisette, Natalie Imbruglia, or Ben Folds. Were you thinking of any of those?

Nope! I imagine this is far too much in the past for anyone else to care now, but the answer is Weezer's "Say it Ain't So".
