sounds of the entire album. The tambourines help with the rhythmic flow, the horns provide a festive companion to the melody, and the backing vocals are served as precursors for the interludes. As for the interludes, the piano melodies are accompanied by abstract string arrangements, which allows for the soft piano melody to be a lot more expressive. The timbre of the song can best be characterized as exotic, like most psychedelic music. The soft and melodic vocals, guitars, piano, and tambourines play an interesting dynamic alongside the loud and vibrant horns. Interludes are a lot richer thanks to the baroque style string arrangements and neoclassical piano bits.

Rhythmically is one of the few places that isn’t overly ambitious. It maintains an average tempo. The song is at a 4/4 time signature and rhythmically progresses primarily with the drums but accompanied with tambourines as well. The form of the song, at its root, is verse-chorus-bridge-chorus. It starts with the chorus, continues with a bridge, so it can be exactly pinpointed as chorus-bridge-verse-chorus-verse- chorus-bridge-chorus.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
