Licks & Riffs : Scissor Sisters - Mary

Report Error

Part of the charm of this opening chord progression from Scissor Sisters (Scisor? Sissor? Scisser?) 'Mary' is the use of a minor chord on the 5th or dominant of the scale.

This is a chord which is usually major (here it would be F# major with an A# instead of an A natural). It's a subtle little surprise, especially as we've just heard the A# as part of the previous Bmaj7 chord.

Many people have noted the likeness to Elton John in the Scissor Sisters' sound, and it is no surprise that there are rumours of a future collaboration in the offing.

Lyrics

I love the tone that's in your laugh
Gasping for an extra breath
Waiting for the time to pass
I believe in day...
