Oregon Girl
Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin Lyrics


Oregon girl I've been around the world, but I've never seen another Oregon girl.
Oregon girl (your lips!) (your curls!) I wanna taste of that Oregon girl

I watch you and I make plans.

Try to stop me
Try to stop me
Try to stop me
Try to stop me

Effective use of major 7th in bass on Oregon Girl.

They tease at it in the first lines of the first and second verse when he says ‘oregon girl’ / ‘marry you’ by briefly visiting the 7 at the end of an A pedal groove.

Interesting diminished sound by using the F chord briefly

Then the bass plays a major seventh ostinato over the ‘there’s mountains’ and ‘watch you’ parts in the first and second verses, a part which i’d sort of describe as a ‘leading bridge’ or ‘mini bridge’, I guess it could also be a prechorus

The musical CLIMAX of the song is when they move from the F to the Fsharp (the “you just ------ try to stop me” sequence). This leads into what i’d call the “true chorus” of the song: “try to stop me now from moving on with an oregon girl.” And part of what makes it such a dramatic chorus is that F to Fsharp. This is critical.

haha thatshoney

it's very reminiscent of the technique used by a greek musician from the 1980's, named Boffadese. Are you familiar with him?

So a friend tells me to listen to Critical Drain and I immediately dig it. Now I've bought everything they have put out, and I can't stop listening. Their hometown in only two hours from me, why haven't I seen them? Sucks to be me!
