Maybe I'm Amazed

The intro is a falling bass line over D major which is interrupted by the verse which is in Bb.  The song then goes back to D major for the chorus section and modulates back and forth throughout the song.

Village Green Preservation Society

I'm so excited to use this clip of The Kinks, I think it's so much better than the album release but I'm always a sucker for a horn section.
Anyway, whole step jump from the Davies brothers. 

If you like this performance check out The Kinks' whole BBC concert HERE. The rendition of Victoria is one of my favorite things in the whole world. If you happen to have a high quality version of this show, please share with your humble editor.

Tears Began To Fall

Since yesterday was Mothers' Day I figured I'd post a song by The Mothers.
The outro descends in half steps for the key change(s).

I tried to find a more accurate video but someone's college project is the best that Youtube could provide.
