The first track on the album ‘Watch This Space’ was based on just four chords. I was listening to the charts at the time and was amazed at how many songs only used four chords. And what was more amazing was these songs used the same four chords for their intros, their verses, their chorus’s and even their middle eights. And so I attempted to do the same and surprisingly enough it turned out to be the poppiest song on the album.
My producer Pat Donne came up with some nice spacey sounds and a really solid drum pattern in the choruses which contrasted with the thin, plinky keyboard motif running through the song.
