Lou Reed - Perfect Day
low- breaker (live)
mogwai fear satan
jeff buckley- last goodbye
But the best is 'I Want You Back' by the Jackson 5
also: Shudder To Think - Red House
My bloody Valentine - the chuggy one off loveless and the LIT soundtrack
and everyone who's ever stolen it.
of the end of Nothing Compares 2U. It's very simple but works well.
Also: Friday I'm In Love by The Cure.
Let it be
but "Ocean of Noise" has a stunning chord progression.
I'm quite partial to the intro of my iron lung
Also 'The Asphalt Word' by Suede* and 'This Is A Low' by Blur.
(*which was ripped off from 'Safesurfer' by Julian Cope - it's basically EXACTLY the same, Suede just improved on it...)
involves the use of a relative minor sounds good to me.
Some kind of wizzard - biffy clyro
Just after the second chorus, I love it
Breakdown by Suede
and D is all you need
play every small faces track.
Ab maj, Bb maj, Cmin sus9 resolving to a straight Cmin.
If you want, you can then set off a chain of suspensions down the relative minors that is quite pant-wettingly beautiful.
For which I am sorry. It is lovely though.
Also, to go hyper-geek, the chord sequence from Allegri's Miserere is really very lovely... so much so it wasn't allowed outside the Vatican for hundreds of years...
When you say Cmin sus9 above, do you actually mean a chord with both Eb and D in it? Surely that's just Cmin9?
Ah - Eb and D yes, but no C until you've resolved the suspension, thus making it a sus9.
Apart from in the bass obviously.
theres no such things as a min sus9.
... if it's used as a suspension.
Not as common as a sus4 though I'll grant you.
It's just more common to put it as a sus9 as strictly speaking the root already exists in the chord.
I am ashamed by my music geekery...
go home and try that. I bet its like Ear Magic.
can't remember the rest of it. I do love E-Am, though.
That's not opinion, that's FACT.
where is my mind
of Petite Machine by Kashmir when the piano and vocals do something awesome.
'The Everlasting' by the Manics (particularly the verses)
Also, 'River Man' by Nick Drake.
River Man. Also, Hurricane by Neil Young
Like a Hurricane of course
Alcoholiday by Teenage Fanclub.
by the Smashing Pumpkins. It's all about the acoustic guitar with the funny open tuning in the background.
I do not know what these chords are.
There's a tab here:
That has James Iha's open-tuned acoustic bit; see about 2/3 of the way down. It's played with a load of chords like (low->high) 908800
1/aug5 - 1/aug6 - 1
in any key!
Just keeps risin' til Saaiiiillors....
the forth the fifth,
the minor fall
and the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah
a great one!! No diggity.
There is a live version where the chord progression is particularly prominent, and it is the best thing ever!
Dunno, but I bet it was in a song I wrote. For real.
Paranoid Android by Radiohead.
do you want me to send you my album? It'll be back from the press in a couple of weeks, with lovely artwork and 'ting.
What are you up to now? Hope things are quite simply marvellous.
I meant that to be a note...
come to mind.
Especially Like Spinnng Plates.
best radiohead piano part
pyramid song is too simple to be "the best"
making an amazing song with 3 or 4 chords
Case in point: Daniel johnston
its like he only knows C F and G
Caribou - Pixies
Only Shallow - MBV
Coffee and TV - Blur
Eleanor Rigby - Beatles
"Babe I'm Gonna Leave You" has gotta be up there somewhere...
absolutely nothing can top billy joel: she's always a women - totally amazing progression...
with 'perfect day', although a little distracted by the likes of chuck berry's 'roll over beethoven' right now.
