I'm practicing the piano for You've got a friend in me from Toy Story and there is a common chord progression within it:
A flat, E flat, G, C minor
If this was in the key of C major it would be F major, C major, E major, A minor which would be a IV -> I -> III -> iv chord progression.
It sounds very harmonious to me, but the major three chord is messing with me.
Why does this sound harmonious even though it's not super standard?
Do any other songs use this chord progression?
