30 Songs in 30 Days – Day Twenty-Two – Sincerely My Belief

October 12, 2014

Short but sweet, Sincerely My Belief. It’s nice to sneak the odd 12-bar in here. No One In This House (But Me) was an 8-bar. My favourite blues singer is Jimmy Reed. He took the 12-bar format and made pop songs out of it, such Baby What Do You Want Me To Do and Big Boss Man. Great hook lines, great melodies. Sincerely My Belief is as much a pop song as it is a 12-bar, (it’s in a major scale, for a start).
