The end of the chorus goes like this:
C/E > F > D/F# > G > E/G# > Am
in functional format:
III > VI > V-of-VII > VII > V > i

This chord progression can be found in Antonio Vivaldi's "Mandolin Concerto",

but also in The Four Season / Spring / fist movement / 1:55.

Can anyone tell me more examples of this? (both classical and pop/rock)

Sting's "seven Dys has something similar:
F > F#halfdim > G > G#dim > Am7

I found the mentioned progression III > VI > V-of-VII > VII > V > i in Bach´s Air... In approximately 4:15 (according to what recording you have) it goes in exactly this form. In this case it begins in major scale, so it is respectively "I - IV - V to V - V - V to vi - vi" with basso continuo following the chromatic line.

hank you angel! Meanwhile I also found the progression in a Who number off the Tommy album. Cannot tell the title, but it's close to the beginning.
