SONGWRITING: the 2-chord song
Two perfect songs, 3 decades apart.
First, Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams” (1977) Fmaj7 and G major, every other bar (these two chords for 90% of the song… they added an Am in the interlude part around 2 minutes):
Then, Minipop’s “Ask Me A Question” (2007) B major and E major, every other bar… the ENTIRE song. And it’s fucking BRILLIANT.
Sometimes, it’s all you need. The layers, the lyrics, the vocal melodies all make these songs masterpieces.
