Tyler’s Notes on Intro/Chorus 

        The Intro/Bridge is comprised of two minor chords in the key of Eb (Fm7 and Gm7) 
on top of a pedal note of Bb.  This Bb pedal note effectively transfers the Intro into the 
Verse, which starts on a chord with the same root note…Bbm. 


Principal Key: Bb Minor 

Bbm                                    Ebm7                                       Fm7 
Tongue tied or short of breath, don't even try 
Try a little harder 
Bbm                                   Ebm7                               Fm7 
Something's wrong, I'm not naive, you must be strong 
Ooh, baby, try 

The Key of Bb Minor 

Modal            I           II           III      IVm      Vm          VI            VII 
          Bbm            Co              Db     Ebm      Fm           Gb           Ab 
Classical                                                   IV^       V 
                                                  Eb         F7 

Tyler’s Notes on the Verse 
        The Verse consists entirely of minor chords.  Beggs’ use of Ebm7 and, more 
specifically, Fm7, indicate his preference of the Modal Minor over the 
Classical Minor.  The fact this section is comprised entirely of minor chords 
helps distinguish it from other sections of the song. 


Principal Key: Ebm

Hey girl, move a little closer 

The Key of Ebm 

Modal            I           II           III      IV      Vm          VI            VII 
          Ebm            Fo              Gb     Abm   Bbm         B             C#7   
Classical                                                  IV^       V 
                                                 Ab        Bb 

Tyler’s Notes on the Pre-Chorus
        Like the transition from the Intro/Chorus into the Verse in “Hang on Now," 
this section changes key and moves up a perfect fourth (from Bbm to Ebm ). 
The beginning of this section is harmonically ambiguous and is identified with the “(NC)" symbol, 
which stands for “No Chord."  This is often seen in jazz and is a very effective key-changing technique. 
It becomes clear that we are in Ebm when we finally hear the implied C#7 chor 
as Limahl utters, “You’re…" before the Chorus begins. 


Ebm        C#            B/F# 
Too shy, shy 
          B/F#               (NC) 
Hush, hush…eye to eye 

Last Chorus Variation: 

Ebm        C# 
Too shy, shy 
Hush, hush………..

Modal            I           II           III      IV      Vm          VI            VII 
          Ebm            Fo              Gb     Abm   Bbm         B             C#7   
Classical                                                  IV^       V 
                                                 Ab        Bb 

Tyler’s Notes on the Chorus 
        The Chorus is comprised of a fairly basic descending progression. 
It is not particularly interesting, as it does not go out of key, but it moves 
so quickly and has such a catchy hook that all is made well—and in fact—all goes 
PERFECTLY well.  Again, “(NC)" stands for “No Chord," but there are two chords 
that are implied: Bbm and Bbm/F
