I love taking standard things and jazzing them up. For example, I took the following sequence:

I - IV - ii - V - iii - iv - IV - V - I

and added secondary dominants:

I - IV - V/ii - ii - V - V/iii - iii - iv -V/IV - IV - V(7) - I

In the key of C, that would be:

C F A7 Dm G B7 Em Am C7 F G(7) C

What's really cool about this is that it allows for a chromatically ascending bass line. In the key of C, that's:

Bass: C - C - C# - D - D - D# - E - E - E - F - G - C
