The I--vi--IV--V chord progression (e.g. C--Am--F--G) is often considered a musical cliché, but, re-ordered and slightly tweaked, these four chords continue to generate contemporary hits - see the mini playlist on the Musicarta 'Mariaan' page (link in 'About').
(Note
Here, we're in D, and the basic chord progression is I--V--vi--IV, or D--A--Bm--G.
TECHNICAL INTERLUDE
As soon as you drop chord ii into the mix (here, E minor), circle of fifths constructions become possible - if not inevitable! Chords ii--V--I is circle of fifths construction, as are the vi--ii--V and iii--VI--ii--V--I portions of the 'Mariaan' chord sequence. Hear how they roll you along!

You could be playing this piece, even if you don't read music! Mariaan is now available as a teach-yourself digital download from Musicarta. More details on the site 'Mariaan' page. For good readers, there's a 'Mariaan Lite' version -- just the music.
Btw, I, vi, IV etc are from the Roman numerals system of naming chords, which is great for talking about 'chords in any key' (i.e., harmony) -- but optional in the 'Mariaan' teach-yourself download.
Musicarta -- really useful stuff for popular music keyboard players.
