a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 I love it when "certain people" are Beatles fans! That way, you don't have to choose between the person and the Beatles. a-hard-days-night-george-10

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

Has anyone broken this song down? It's so brilliant how Paul manipulates the mood, it's almost shockingly perfect. Must be the best song ever written. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

You mist be kidding. It's well written but God trumps it by a long shot.

God? Are you talking lyrically? I meant that it's the most brilliant chord progression I've ever seen.

I was, yes. Well, on the clarified basis, I agree.

Can you elaborate more Gniknus? I'd love to know a-hard-days-night-ringo-10

What I mean is that there are "rules" of music and Paul breaks those rules just beautifully. The song is in the key of G, at least the verse's and it's a fairly straightforward progression until he gets to the "wave of her hand" part, which is where he starts to bend the rules. He plays a B major rather than B minor, which just shouldn't be done, but it's that tension chord that completely changes the mood of the song...why it works so well is beyond me. Then of couse he flawlessly transitions into another key in the bridge or chorus or whatever it is, which just adds another layer. Then there's the intro where he gives a sneak peak of the tension that he will add to the song later, I don't know it's just really beautifully done.
There are many, many other Beatles songs which feature these same elements, but I don't think any other song has it's mood as cleverly manipulated as this one.

Thanks so much Gniknus. I just read a guitar version and I think I got a little what you mean.

 

My main problem is that I don't know what a G is. I learned music with the solfege music notation, you know with Do, Re, Mi, Fa, Sol, La, Si, Do, so to me, a G is a sol. It's just a mess a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

I see, well in this context I'm talking about the key of G, so let's say you had a guitar and wanted to know what chords sound good together, this is where the key comes in.
I think most people get hung up on trying to read music, but absolutely none of the Beatles could read and they turned out alright.

Yeah but the Beatles were natural musicians. I just have the ability to read a simple song and play it decently in a keyboard with two fingers. a-hard-days-night-john-2

 

Mhhh actually I can play with all my fingers a keyboard. Mhhh now I know what instrument I should get a-hard-days-night-ringo-7
