The Perfect 4 Notes


One day, when all the churning is done and my ears are ready (they need to be oiled) I'm intending to make a complete album of tracks based around my favourite four note sequence - the slightly lilting der dah de dahh as heard on thousands of songs in my head and quite a few outside it.

Here's one of them, perhaps my favourite song of last year that I never got round to mentioning.

Asobi Seksu - New Years


A Yousendit chordochromatic tension-breaker

It's a small piece of wonder that progression, it taps right into my psyche, it always makes me feel happy and content and as luvved-up as I ever managed on Ecstacy. In fact, every time I take anything remotely psychedelic nowadays (i.e. mushrooms, spaghetti bolognese that's been left three days too long) I hear it, even when it's not playing (or else, it's always playing ).

It's the perfect 4 notes.

I always knew you'd join me and Nye in shoegazing corner eventually.......it is the best song off a rather good album.My three weeks of learning guitar leaves me to suggest that they're using a combination of minor variations and sevenths in the key of d....has that sucked the joy out of the music yet ?
