I am analysing the chords from songs I like, in order to understand why I like them and to reuse the ideas in contexts that suit my voice and playing styles better.
I am going through Lush - Single Girl now, a song in the key of A major. Verse goes like:
A D Single girl I don't wanna be a single girl A D Single girl I don't wanna be a single girl
Then the next section is:
F G C F Don't wanna be on my own again tonight F G D Don't wanna put out the light
C are not diatonic in A major, but I see them as borrowed from
relative parallel minor. Which is the best way to notate them? Am I right with:
bVI bVII bIII bVI Don't wanna be on my own again tonight bVI bVII IV Don't wanna put out the light
Or should I write it as modulating to A minor (but then again
D would be non-diatonic)?
