I love you more than I hate my period

Postby DhamaBum » Sat Jan 23, 2010 9:05 pm

I didnt see another topic for this, so sorry if there is one.

To be honest, I frikkin LOVED this song, so I tabbed out a bit of it. As close as I can tell, adapted for Guitar from piano:

EDIT: Formatting is screwy, copy+paste it

EDIT 2: Goddamnit, I tried to like compress it and it still looks dumb. Just C+P it.

Code: Select all

Verse
"Let me tell you 'bout the love I have..."                                                                                    "and his--"
E|--
B|--
G|---------------------------------------------------------------0--2---------0--2---------0--2--0---------------
D|--------5-------------5------------5------------5---------4------------4-------------4------------4------------
A|-----3-----3------3------3-----2-----2-----2------2--5------------5-------------5----------------------3-----
E|--5------------5-------------0-----------0-------------------------------------------------------------0*--------  x4

*Not exactly sure of the note(s) here, but upon further listen, I dont think there's the open E in there, so you can play without it.
Chorus
"Song, is stuck, in my head..."
E|-
B|--------------------------------------------------8------------------------------------------------------8-------
G|--------7-------------7------------7----------------7---------7-------------7-----------7-----------------7---
D|-----5-----5------5------5-----5-----5-----5-------------5------5------5-----5-----5-----5------5-----------
A|--7------------7-------------5-----------5-------------5-------------7------------5------------5---------------
E|--
x 2 or 3, not sure on the ordering made it weird for tab purposes, just listen and get the ordering down yourself, not too hard.
Then I think at the end there's a bit like the end of the verse like

|--
|--
|--------0--2--------0--2----------0--2--0-------------
|-----4-----------4-------------4-------------4---------
|--5-----------5------------5---------------------5--3--
|--
With probably a bit added in



This is all I have for now, so someone add or maybe I'll just have time to finish it. Very rough, and not perfect by any means, but it will get you by. If you're confused just listen to it

The name of this song really turned me off to be honest. It made me think they were doing it during her period, and that's just gross.
Self-inflicted or not, I find myself on the farthest star, foreign to everything like I woke up with a German tongue.

Hey man, every guy's gotta earn their red wings at some point :P


I think the title is hilarious, certainly gives suggestion to the adolesence of the main character. She's clearly supposed to be like a 15 year old girl swooning over some band guy

You know, I don't know the lyrics enough to comment. Only heard it once. I think the best story of a 15 year old girl swooning over a band guy is what just happened to Alex from All Time Low recently. Here's a link to the story.

Hah, thats pretty classic. Lyrics are really good, I think it;s the chorus that really got me though. So fuckin catchy:


let me tell you about the love i have
cause it's growing by the moment
and i'd murder you to hold his hand

see i don't even know this boy
but i want him so bad, oh so bad

he's the singer of my favorite band
if i cornered him and locked him in a closet
he would understand

take me away from my boring life
to his promised land

and his song is stuck in my head
his song is stuck in my head
as long as he's not poor or dead
then i always shall remember him

he's not like the other guys i meet
i'm sure he's always keen to listen
and the words he sings so sweet

are like the bible not a fable
he'd be willing to beat my ex-boyfriend up
if they should ever meet

and as i press repeat
in the snow and sleet
i do a lap around his block
and as i swoon i'll keep

my knife concealed
'til the dream is real
and we share a suburban street

and his song is stuck in my head
his song is stuck in my head
and i'll chain him tight to my bed
so i always shall remember him

lately i've been wondering 'bout reverse psychology
and all the negative crap that it implies
like that i want what i want when i want it
and not when it's glimmering before my eyes.
lately i've been wondering 'bout complex biology
like when a stork shows up on your roof
to bring you a lovely love child
bouncing boy to spell out the truth.

his song is stuck in my head
his song is stuck in my head
i will fill his heart and soul with lead
so i always shall remember him

his song is stuck in my head
his song is stuck in my head
he will take my fire and burn instead
so i always shall remember him

I just listened to it, and its witty but I think I just don't relate to it very much. Yes it happens and it's true, but I almost felt more depressed listening cause its so true. hahaha
