The IV I V vi
4 1 5 6 in major keys The "Life is Life" progression
This one seems fairly unusual for a cliche. Not that many songs using it, that I've noticed. But it's interesting in that it takes the 1 6 4 5 cliche and turns it into a plagal cadence (IV I) followed by a deceptive cadence (V VI), and there's no (V I) anywhere to be found. It sounds bright and cheery but with little sense of home key.
