I believe these all are deep base minor life is pain, sweetheart, songs. that quote is from Princess Bride, btw.
earlier I heard One Republic sing something from their Native album, either Counting Stars or I Lived, which had the same sound, and in it I could picture a native drum and fire dancers influence. That doesn’t account for all of the above songs which also have a chain gang, pickin cotton, southern vibe.
