Patrick Little asked:
p.s. Was "Funny Ways" the Giant equivalent of "Stairway to Heaven"? I would hope they would refuse to play it if they reformed.
And Barney spake:
There's a giant who's sure all progressions are odd And he's playing a counterpoint pattern... When he gets it, he'll know, 'cause he'll scare all around Those who program all Top-40 radios... Ooooohh... oh, I do miss that counterpoint pattern... There's a time signature, but he wants to be sure Cause sometimes, hooks can change on you midway Does it land on the one, or then maybe on three What the hell, no one will get it anyway... Ooooohh... why do people enjoy Mariah Carey? And it makes me wonder... If there's a flat note in your root chord, don't be alarmed now Listen to it five times and you'll get in Yes there are two ways you can choose from, fan or a hater, But there's still time to change the side you're on...
With apologies to Led Zeppelin....
