3 Chord Club:
One Hit Wonders w/Unique Names

Posted on: February 3rd, 2012 by dville
This week at the 3 Chord Club we delve into the musical archives and unearth three one-hit-wonders from three folks with unique names, Norman Greenbaum, Billy Ray Cyrus and Rolf Harris.

Each Friday we choose three songs from a specific artist, label or genre of music that we’ll learn by ear. All the songs will contain three chords or less (with the exception of Bonus Chord songs)! You’ll find links to the lyrics but not the chords. That’s where your ears come in. Since you know the song has only one to three chords, try to figure out the changes, or chord progression by ear while watching the YouTube video. Here’s a hint, most of the time the chords will be the I-IV & V or V7 chords. In the Key of C, that’s C-F-G or G7.
Remember, the sound examples may be in various keys. As an added bonus, try to figure out the key of the recording.  If you can’t figure out the original key of a song or songs refer to the Extra Credit Hints at the bottom of the post.

Spirit In The Sky (lyrics)
(Hint: Verse I-IV-I-V-I)

Achy Breaky Heart (lyrics in video)
(Hint: Chorus I-V-I)
Tie Me Kangaroo Down (lyrics in video) 
(Hint: I-IV-V-I)
Extra Credit Hints:
Spirit In The Sky Key A (Chords A-D-E)
Achy Breaky Heart: Key A (Chords A-E)
Tie Me Kangaroo Down: Key E (Chords E-A-B)
