So many riffs are based on a series of descending fifths. Fly me to the Moon, Hotel California, almost anything by Handel....
The idea of ANY music being new is patently absurd. Some things never work (anything with a B sharp in it for instance....ta dum dum) (Yes I know....) And then of course there is the Descending Fifths.
Case in point.
Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain plays "Fly me of the Handel"
You can thank me later....grin! After you check out my favorite song.."Orange Blossom Special" played on Ukes!!!!
