OML! I love the Beard song!!! What genius! :) And her voice is beautiful too!

I feel an overwhelming mix of inspiration and inferiority :lol:

Oh really? Damn!

Yes, love Beard song! :heart: She's so talented and has such a beautiful voice.

I don't think I had listened to Take Your Love With Me before. Haha, it does remind me of Bret's love song, particularly the beginning. :lol:

I know the feeling well. I experience it everytime I watch one of your videos. :prayer: What's next for you? I think you promised a pay-per-view nude shower gig? :eyelashes:

Seriously, that was WAY better than Train's version. (sorry Train) I love Andy's voice. :heart: Thanks for the link, I hadn't seen that yet. Was that your gig? I'm mucking along playing the song with the true chords and it's killing me. (ow, ow, ow, ow) But one or two of Sophie's songs require the E to B switch in some form so I figure I'm in training...no pain, no gain right? GH do you play?

Heehee! And with both of the Conchords bearded lately...it's a perfect tune. :love:

Heehee I thought it was cheesy at first then I made the connection. :roll2: That tune really grows on ya too. Everyone needs to give it a go. Trust me. :nod:

Ha! Looks like neither of you read my latest WIUO gig review or saw Venus's links afterwards - both had that (and other fabulous) linkees! LOL!
No Nonch, I don't play, alas... :( As a graphic designer I can make things look pretty - but they sound BAD! I've no musical talent whatsoever! :lol:
(That's why I'm in such awe of anyone who CAN play!) :D

But I don't either, H! Really...I've never played anything! You should get a uke....you would be made so happy by what you can do with 4 or 5 easy chords! And there are more that are easy....:)

No, I didn't....:( But I'm going now!

Ha! If I read threads at work, alas I cannot watch videos. :worry: I did see your fantastic photo. The one photo. Just one. :? And too drunk to meet up with the guys?!?!?!? :tsk: Oh GreatH! I'm so disappointed. :lol:

Bummer you don't play. Have you ever tried?

:doh: Ah well, let's hope she announces more dates near us. Who knows, it may be during another meet-up. ;)

Haha, Beard Song is so relevant now. ;)

Haahahahaha! Yes it is, isn't it? But we don't love them just for their beards as the last line of the song asserts....in fact sometimes we love them 'in spite' of their big bushy beards. :purple:

Isn't Sophie from the UK? Anywhere near you?

Oh yeah we definitely love them for more than their beards. From scruff to 'giant' beards, you can always trust the state of their facial hair to unite/divide us fans. :lol: ;) Yeah Sophie's from Brighton. As far as I know, she hasn't announced any upcoming London dates yet.

i decided to learn how to play "I heart you online" and "Take your love with me" today...SO FUN!! :rock:

it was a bit difficult to remember that "F" and "C7" in TYLWM are different that usual, but after playing the songs a few times through i definitely got the hang of it. :D New songs are so fun to learn, thank you for sharing Venus and nonch! :hug:

Yay, Cheri! :supz: I can't wait to jam out with you!!!

Hey, the next time you're not busy delivering babies and such...will you post the youtube video and chords for FotC's "You don't love me anymore?" Thanks! I can't find the ones you sent me. :hug:

Is anyone playing The Beard Song? I'm wondering the best way to switch from G to GM. Right now I'm attempting to switch both my first and second finger between the chords and failing as much as I succeed. :? It's easier if I play the G with my index finger on the first string and just slide it up a fret, but I don't know if that's wise. :dunno:

Here's what I have, nonch:



Lyrics to You Don't Love Me Any More:

You don't love me any more,
you don't sing me love songs,
you don't whisper sweet nothings into my ear any more...
what is wrong?

Our love's become a chore,
changed all the locks on the door,
when I say "J'adore," you say "man-whore,"
is that cuz you don't love me any more?

You say my belongings don't belong,
and you've stopped playing our favorite song,
you play "Hit the Road jack" all night long...
oh baby what's goin on?

Well you don't love me any more,
you don't love me any more,
you don't love me any more,
there's no more amore any more.

Well there was a time when anything we'd say was interesting-
anything-
{Bret} "Are those trousers or jeans?"
{Jemaine} "They're just blue trousers."
{Bret} "Oh wow."

Oh the dance floor would empty when we'd boogie on,
til the break of dawn,
The look in your eyes it would say you'd always love me-eee-eeee.

Now my days are dark and gloomy,
and it's beginning to undo me,
you won't let me rest my weary head against your bosoms,
no, you won't even show them to me.

We don't go out with one another,
oh if we do you introduce me as your brother,
I see that you've taken on another lover,
well, do you think perhaps we should stop seeing one another?

You don't love me any more,
no, no you don't love me any more,
when you say that you don't love me any more,
you make me think that you don't love me any more.

Well there was a time when anything we'd say was interesting-
everything-
{Bret} "Do you prefer cheese or just...cheese and tomato?"
{Jemaine} "Cheese and tomato."
{Bret} "Unbelievable."

Oh, raindrops were falling into our hair,
but we didn't care,
the daydreams and moonbeams in our hair,
now the daydreams are dead....
Do it to em, Jemaine!

*Jemaine does it....passes it off to Nigel, who also does it.*

Is there something I could say that would keep you here to stay?
what if I wrote a song about how your love for me is gone?
is there nothing I could do that'd bring back the love we knew?
cuz if not, then...you're a slut....and I couldn't love you any more,
no, I couldn't love you any more,
ooo, I couldn't love you any more,
any more than I already do.....
******************************************************
This is from lollerskates:
The chords for melody and chorus are:
Gm, Cm, DM, Gm

The bridge is:
FM and Gm
*****************************************************


I'm completely unable to play this and sing along.......... :? One or another, but not both, grrr.
