SONGWRITING MONTH DAY 12: The Four-Chorder

Get ready, people! We’re writing a song today.

PROMPT: Write a song with the same four chords repeated over and over. 

People who write songs tell me that they either start with words or melody.I decided on this prompt because I want to see if I can start a song with the melody before the words.  I usually write the words first.

SONG OF THE DAY: High and Dry

A fine four-chorder for your listening enjoyment.  The BENDS is my most favorite of  the Radiohead albums–probably because it’s the most singer-songwritery. I’m pretty sure that without this song, there would be no Coldplay.

(Still deciding if that is a good or bad thing.)
