There's this song I once heard which is basically a mashup of a lot of songs in one scale. I'm not sure which scale it was but I think it was C. It's sung by a bunch of guys, and one of them looks kinda like Jack Black.

It has the songs "Africa" (Toto), "No Woman No Cry" (Bob Marley), "Sex and Candy" (Marcy's Playground), and a bunch more.

It would be awesome if someone could tell me what the song is called. I've been looking for it for the past year and I can't find it.

    Are you talking about a medley? or perhaps the axis of awesome song? – zeukin Dec 24 '16 at 2:09
  • "I smell sex and candy... Mama, this surely is a dream" is the song "Sex and Candy" by Marcy's Playground. – faintsignal Dec 25 '16 at 0:37

Axis of Awesome "Four Chord Song". It's not so much the same "key" ( although it is all the same key), it the same chord progression. The joke is that all of the songs consist of the same four chords.

Here is the song

(As a side note, some of the original songs are in different keys, but all transposed to the same for this song.)

    +1 I'm certain this is the song the OP is looking for, but please add a link and a little information about the song to flesh out the answer. Answers are more useful (and searchable) when they include some detail in the text. – Chris Sunami Dec 24 '16 at 3:17
  • Of course. Will do – Caleb Dec 24 '16 at 3:52
