Ok, so I'm in music theory. I have to bring in any song I want and disect it for the class. Like explain the key, chord progression, rhythm sequence, in technical terms. It doesn't have to be a technical masterpiece or anything that classical orientated at all. So do any of you know some songs with something interesting or unique about the music?

As of right now, it's either
Summer Romance - Incubus (B Dorian mode)
Yellow Ledbetter - Pearl Jam (good use of arpeggios)

It doesn't even have to be rock.

you could go with somethign like bohemian rhapsody or citizen erased. You know something that chages a bit. Or anything Dream Theater could be interesting.

Dire Straits - Sultans of Swing

Otherwise, your own idea of 'summer romance' is a good one.

Why do we feel it's necessary to yak about bullsh*t in order to be comfortable?

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

Good stuff if you want to analyze the harmonic minor.
