3 Chord Club: One Hit Wonders 1958

Posted on: June 10th, 2011 by dville

Today at the 3 Chord Club we’ll travel back in time for three One Hit Wonders from 1958.

At the 3 Chord Club 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! 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.

Rockin’ Robin-Bobby Day
(Hint: Bridge IV-I-IV-V7)

Purple People Eater-Sheb Wooley
(Hint: Modulates through 4 keys D-Eb-E-F)
Get A Job-The Silhouettes
(Hint: Verse I-IV-V-I)
