The Pachelbel Canon is the world's magic chord progression. I usually listen to it on repeat when I decide it's a good day for it. Here's my goto recording:

Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan used to end his spiritual seminars with a sing-along to the tune of the Pachelbel Canon with "Hallelujah" as the only lyrics. He'd start with four Hallelujahs per bar, and then lead us in singing along with two Hallelujahs per bar, finally adding a descant part. Here's my quick Garage Band recording of that (37 seconds):

You can download the MP3 file as pachelbel-hallelujah.mp3.
