This Charming Bowie
Welcome to this knockabout world
Usually, for me, it's that accidental (sharp or flat) chord that makes it into a typical 90s “Morrissey” chord progression - no slant on the song, as you can throughout the rest of my post.I want to understand what a classic Moz chord sequence/arrangement is.
Because like Amy, maybe others here, this is the Moz I relate to . . . Classic.
(And I don't relate so much to Southpaw, YOR etc. - even though they're the same writers.)
But I'm never quite sure why this "classic Moz" stands out so or seems so defining.
Is it the vocal melody (something I don't understand)? Is it Whyte using a certain set of chords favoured by Morrissey.
In any event, I echo most of you here. One of his true greats. I just wonder why . . . ?
I think you're right in saying that Whyte used certain chords (or chord numbers in different keys) often, and that clearly Moz liked them - similarly, I’m sure to Jesse or Boz or Gustavo now.
