(Note: The full URL is http://www.icce.rug.nl/~soundscapes/DATABASES/AWP/awp-notes_on.shtml) Whilst I cannot claim to begin to fathom the depths of this musicologist's analysis of every Beatles' song, I bet those of you who can tell a crotchet from a clavichord will draw joy from this obviously-reverential study of the Fab Four's discography. For example, in a discussion of the refrain of "Good Day Sunshine", we learn... "The meter isn't the only thing that almost eludes our grasp in this refrain; the key is also equivocal at this point, and is not settled until the verse begins. Until proven otherwise, we would assume from the opening, that the key of the song is going to be B rather than A as it later turns out. The chord progression from V-of-V back to its own V rather than forward to the V of the home key is musical kind of "approach avoidance." Damn, I wish my mother had made me learn an instrument so I could even appreciate half of what this site was talking about. -- The Lovely Samantha Passionate but illiterate music loverSee positive reviews
