I don't know if you needed to pick up a music theory book to know this... any one who's listened to a kid play "Heart and Soul" on the piano (from 1938) has internalized those changes, and can spot them as easily as the good old Rock and Roll (err... Glenn Miller) I-IV-V progression....

Also, just because it's a very common progression, doesn't make it the "only" progression by any stretch.

That's awesome! You've managed to discover something that just about anyone who's picked up a music theory book has known for years. Well done.
