The Flaming Lips
Watching the Planets
Embryonic

Basically, the chord progression is the same throughout the song (Dm Gm A Dm), with the exception
of the bridge. Sometimes, they play an A# between the A and Dm, but only occasionally. 
Also, notice how the song has (nearly) the same chord progression as "I Can Be a Frog", another
song from Embryonic that features Karen O.
