I'm putting together an a cappella sing-along medley of songs that use the same chords as Heart and Soul. The plan: We'll teach accompaniment parts to the audience, chorus members will spread out amongst them to help keep that on track, and one or more designated soloists will karaoke the melody over that.

I know there are many songs to fit the bill but I can only think of Sh-boom. Please, what others??

Actually I'm looking for names of additional songs that follow the same chord pattern...as I mentioned, got one already, "Sh-Boom", but I am SURE there are more, just cannot for the life of me think of them now that I need them.

You're referencing a 1-6m-4-5 pattern. Sometimes the 4 is 2m7.

Here are some:
"Runaround Sue"
"Stand by Me"
"Goodnight Sweetheart"
"Sleepwalk" (though it's 4m)
"Hey Baby"
"Blue Moon"
"26 Miles"

Blue moon, Smoke gets in your eyes, this boy, Easy Street, three little fishes, I will, you might need to shift the occasional chord, and the middle eight's are different

100 Pounds of Clay (Gene McDaniels).

Isn't there one that goes I vi ii V (e.g., C Am Dm G) instead? What's *it* called? Or have I been mishearing it all these years?

For many songs the 2 chord patterns are interchangeable. When I was a kid fooling at piano 4 hands (with bro or mom), whomever was doing the accompaniment routinely swapped in and out various majors, minors and 7ths while the other improvised melodies. Basically a very fun jam for us kids. I think mom got more than a little bored with the repetition ad infinitum.
