Lovefool (the Cardigans) - Anna

Post by annadalvi »

This is a simple accordion version of the Cardigans' single Lovefool (1996). Ronen played this on one of the livestreams a few weeks ago, and it's such a catchy tune I had to play it too.
I didn't really like the chords from ultimate guitar tabs this time, so I changed them up a little bit. It's a straightforward melody over 4 chords (Am-Dm-G-C) for the verse (punctuated by an E7 in my version, but not in theirs), and then there is a small build up (C-A-dm-B) to the chorus which is played over A-F#m-Bm-E. I used a light, bouncy rhythm for the basses, with alternating bass techniques.

Hi Anna

You keep amazing me in how fast you can learn a new song.
This one is also nice.
And then pick your own chord progression and all. WOW

I need to add that it is also nice to see you move nowadays, and really swing with you accordion

Stay Safe Ivo

Anna,
I remember always enjoying hearing that song on the radio.
It is immensely fun to hear you interpret the tune on your accordion.
Your command of the notes on your accordion is impressive.

Someone asked about this on the livestream today. Here are the chords I play. I changed it up a bit from what's on Ultimate Guitar Tabs because I think this fits better.


Am Dm
Dear I feel we're facing a problem
G C
You love me no longer I know and
Am Dm G
Maybe there is nothing that I can do
C E7
To make you do

Am Dm
Mama tells me I shouldn't bother
G C Am
Said I ought to stick to another man
Dm
A man that surely deserves me
G C
I think you do

A

Dm B7 E7
So I cry I pray and I beg
A F#m Bm E
Love me love me say that you love me
A F#m Bm E
Fool me fool me go on and fool me
A F#m Bm E
Love me love me pretend that you love me
A F#m Bm E
Leave me leave me just say that you need me


A F#m

Bm E A E
So I cry and I beg for you to
A F#m Bm E
Love me love me say that you love me
A F#m Bm E
Leave me leave me say that you need me
Am Dm E7 Am (E7)
I can't care 'bout anything but you


And then it repeats. But basically it's mainly two different but simple patterns in the bass. The verse is Am-Dm-G-C - just four chords moving straight down. And then there is a quick walkup on the "So I cry I pray and I beg" of C-A-Dm-B7
And then the second pattern is mostly A-F#m-Bm-E. Not too hard really.
