3 Chord Club: One Hit Wonders w/Unique Names

Posted on: February 3rd, 2012 by dville
Today 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.
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 (with the exception of Bonus Chord songs)! 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.
Spirit In The Sky-Norman Greenbaum
(Hint: Verse I-IV-I-V-I)
 Achy Breaky Heart-Billy Ray Cyrus 
(Hint: Chorus I-V-I)
Tie Me Kangaroo Down-Rolf Harris
(Hint: I-IV-V-I)

Songs presented are for educational purposes only and used under the fair use doctrine of United States copyright law.
