So we know this song is a contender for stinkiest lyric of all time, but greatest chord change?
A didn’t anybody Dm tell her
A to Dm?
Big whoop! What’s so steller about that?
Listen to it. Listen to it!
We’ve been motoring along in A mixolydian.
We’re about to go into the chorus.
We hit a root chord (A major).
The band drops out for a bar and pow!
We’ve changed key!
There was no warning.
Then we’re back on A major again.
Was that a passing chord or a key change?
If it was a key change what key are we in now?
Blam! – D minor again!!!
What kind of nutter does a key change on the first (or second) chord of the chorus?
Paul McCartney that’s who.
It’s so awesome it has attained a level of awesomeness all of it’s own.
