    Hey guys. I know there are few musicians on here and i like to figure out songs when i can't find a decent chord chart on the web, so i thought a few of you might appreciate a random song section. Also, if anyone needs help figuring a song out, I've got a pretty good ear and I'm just OCD enough to get the chord right.

    I've been a closet fan of the Bee Gees since my teens and got back into them after hearing Tame Impala's fantastic album, Currents, and being recently reminded of their greatness. This one is probably my all time favorite from them:

    The Bee Gees
    "Love You Inside Out"

    Em7
    Baby I can’t figure it out, your kisses taste like honey. Sweet lies don’t give me no rise, Oh, oh, what you’re trying to do.
    Dmaj7--------------Am7--------------------------------B7----------------------------------Em7
    Livin’ on your cheatin’ and the pain, grows inside me, it’s enough to leave me cryin’ in the rain
    Em7---------------------------------------------F#m7------------------Dmaj7--------- Am7----------B7
    Love you forever, but you’re driving me insane, and I’m hanging on. Whoa-ho-ho-ho

    Em7
    I’ll win, I’ll never give it. Our love has got the power. Too many lovers in one lifetime ain’t good for you.
    Dmaj7-----------------Am7--------------------------------B7-------------------------------------------Em7
    You treat me like a vision in the night, Someone there to stand there behind you when your world ain’t workin’ right

    Em7----------------------------Fm#7,Em7,Fm#7,Bm7
    I ain’t no vision, I’m the man who loves you inside and out
    Em7---------------------------------Dmaj7
    Backwards and forwards with my heart hangin’ out.
    Em7, F#m7, Bm7-----Em7-------------------------(A7sus4)
    I Love no other way. What am I gonna do if we lose that fire?

    Em7
    Wrap myself up and take me home again. Too many heartaches in one lifetime ain’t good for me.
    Dmaj7-----------------Am7--------------------------------B7-------------------------------------------Em7
    I figure it’s the love that keeps you warm, let this moment be forever, we won’t ever feel the storm.

    Em7----------------------------Fm#7,Em7,Fm#7,Bm7
    I ain’t no vision, I’m the man who loves you inside and out
    Em7---------------------------------Dmaj7
    Backwards and forwards with my heart hangin’ out.
    Em7, F#m7, Bm7-----Em7-------------------------(A7sus4)
    I Love no other way. What am I gonna do if we lose that fire?

    D7
    Don’t try to tell me it’s all over. I can’t hear a word, I can’t hear a line
    D7
    No man could love you more, and that’s what I’m crying for
    D7
    You can’t change the way I feel inside
    G----------------------------------F---------------------------------Em7-------------------------A
    You are the reason for my laughter and my sorrow. Blow out the candle, I will burn again tomorrow.
    Dmaj7-------------------------------------Am7------------------------B7-------------------------------------------Em7
    No man on Earth could stand between my love and I, and no matter how you hurt me I will love you till I die

    Em7----------------------------Fm#7,Em7,Fm#7,Bm7
    I ain’t no vision, I’m the man who loves you inside and out
    Em7---------------------------------Dmaj7
    Backwards and forwards with my heart hangin’ out.
    Em7, F#m7, Bm7-----Em7-------------------------(A7sus4)
    I Love no other way. What am I gonna do if we lose that fire?

    (repeat chorus X3)

    With Jeff Lynne releasing another album, I've been on a huge ELO kick lately. If you aren't familiar, I highly recommend you check them out, especially being a Spoon fan I think you'd be into them. It's mostly food rock and roll and prog rock that is very very Beatlesque. I love this track that I've transcribed here, I really think it's Jeff Lynne's first perfect song (amongst a very very formidable catalog). I couldn't find a correct version of it, so I made one. There two chords that took me a minute to figure out, they're laid out on the bottom.

    Electric Light Orchestra
    "Bluebird is Dead"

    A-----------F+--------F#m, E, D--------------F--------------------- A, F
    Little darlin’ of my life,--------You keep movin’ across my mind.

    A---------- F+-----------F#m, E, D------- F------------------ A, E
    You gave me a sunny day,-----Now it looks as if I’ll pay.

    A---------------------Amaj7-------------A7--------------------------------------D
    Why do they say, Bluebird is dead, I can still see her, touch her, my bluebird

    D----F#m6-----------------------------A------------- F+------------F#m, Dm
    The love that she gave, I don’t believe, no no, I don’t believe.

    F, G, D, F, G, A

    A---------F+ ---------------F#m, E, D--------- F----------------- A, F
    Bluebird came to me tonight, ---waiting patiently for light.

    A----------F+---------------------- --F#m, E, D--------F------------------ A, E
    She said, I know that you will grieve----but my darlin’ I must leave.

    A---------------------Amaj7-------------A7--------------------------------------D
    Why do they say, Bluebird is dead, I can still see her, touch her, my bluebird

    D----F#m6-----------------------------A------------- F+------------F#m, Dm
    The love that she gave, I don’t believe, no no, I don’t believe.

    F, G, D, F, G, A

    D, A, D, A, G, D, F, G, A

    A-----------F+--------- F#m, E, D---------F----------------------A, F
    Bluebird say it is not so------Please I cannot hear you speak.

    A------------F+--------------F#m, E, D---------F-----------------A, E
    It must be that you’re so tired----In the darkness of the night.

    A---------------------Amaj7-------------A7--------------------------------------D
    Why do they say, Bluebird is dead, I can still see her, touch her, my bluebird

    D----F#m6-----------------------------A------------- F+------------F#m, Dm
    The love that she gave, I don’t believe, no no, I don’t believe.

    F, G, D, F, G, A

    F+: XX3221
    F#m6: XX4242
