Annotationen

Der Song könnte eine frühe Verse-Chorus-Bridge Form sein, denn der Instrumental-Teil in der Mitte des Songs klingt zwar wie der Chorus, ist aber 12 Takte lang (Verse und Chorus haben 8 Takte). Der Song ist sowieso sehr ungewöhnlich aufgebaut – symmetrisch: Intro-Chorus-Verse-Chorus-Interlude-Chorus-Verse-Chorus-Coda (ABACABA).
