Christine's Chords: Imagine Me (Jerrica's Song) by Jem and the Holograms
For some strange reason (which in itself isn't really strange), I thought of this song today and wanted to try playing it by ear . . .
Later, after more time than I'd like to admit, I came up with a rough arrangement of chords that managed to sound okay. Note that they're not in the same key as the original "single"!
Imagine Me (Jerrica's Song)
[D]Imagine me [Bm]free from care,
[G]Light as a feather, [Bm]floating on air.
[G]Can't you see how [A]lovely it would be?
[D]Imagine me [Bm]breezing through,
[G]Never a worry, [Bm]nothing to do.
[G]What a lovely [A]fantasy.
Everything's [Bm]going my way [Em].
[A]Everything's [Bm]rolling along [Em].
[A]No [G]pain, no [A]strain;
I [Em]can't com[Bm]plain.
[G]Life is a happy [A]song.
[D]Imagine me [Bm]coasting by,
[G]Solving my problems, [Bm]easy as pie.
[Em]Life is simple as [G]ABC.
[A]Baby, just imagine me.
[D]Imagine me [G]
[D]Imagine me . . .
It has always been a small frustration of mine that these songs that I grew up with--atrocious examples of 80s Pop though they may be--don't have their chords floating around in the creative commons.
So I guess I'm doing my part to fix that.
There is also much to say about Imagine Me and its ironic status as "Jerrica's Song", but I think I'll spare you my analysis today. =)
