• Song:

    Election Day

  • Artist:

    Arcadia

This is a first song from the Arcadia -  side project of Duran Duran members - 
Simon le Bonn, Nick Rhodes and Roger Taylor. It's pretty simple and classical for 
new-wawe style :)

Before playing it in bass, you should put tune down on 1 step: DGDF 


Intro tab (actually it plays on keyboards, but I adapted it for guitar):
E|------------------|------------------|------5-----------|
B|------------10-10-|-13--p-12-------6-|-8--p-------------|
G|------------10-10-|-14--p-12-----7---|------------------|
D|------------------|------------------|------------------|
A|------------------|------------------|------------------|
E|------------------|------------------|------------------|             
(In intro and in couplets bass plays always D)


Coplet 1:
D                         C
Wild kind of look to the day
A               G
Opening eyes impale neon flickers
D                       C
She moon she turning away
    A                         G
The city's her slave but he's cheating his mistress

D  C
      A
She's moody and gray
      G
She's mean and she's so restless (so restless)


Couplet 2:
D                     C
All over you as they say
A                      G
Rumours or rivals yell at the strike force
D                 C
Hi guys, by the way
A                     G
Are you aware you're being illegal

D  C
     A                      G
It's making your saviour behaviour look evil


Chorus:
Bm         G
   Maximum big surprise
      Bm                    E
Your smile is something new


End of the chorus:
D                         C
I pull my shirt off and pray
A                
We're sacred and bound 
   G
To suffer the heatwave
D                       C
Pull off my shirt and pray
      A            G
We're coming up on re-election day


Couplet 3:
 D                           C 
Stretching my luck down the way
   A                 G        
To your invitation stretching my body
D                     C
Use your intuitive play
A                          G
'cause maybe we have more play time than money


Chorus:
Bm         G
   Maximum big surprise
    Bm                  E
She knows something new


End of the chorus:
D                         C
I pull my shirt off and pray
    A         
I'm saving myself
   G
To suffer the heatwave
D                       C
Pull off my shirt and pray
      A            G
We're coming up on re-election day


Insrumental "talking" part:
Bm                       G
   By roads and backways
   A                      G
A lover's chance downwind
Cut open murmurs and sounds
Becalm hands on the skin
Carry further oh...
Entangled strands all sing
Saving some time to slip away
We could die oh...


End of "talking" part:
D               C  
  Shouldn't be asking
A      G   D               C
  Wild.......and scheming
           A             G
Could be my election day 


Chorus:
Bm         G
   Maximum big surprise
     Bm                     E
Your smile is something new


Couplet 4:
D                         C 
I pull my shirt off and pray
      A                 
We're sacred and bound 
   G
To suffer the heatwave
D                       C
Pull off my shirt and pray
      A            G
We're coming up on re-election day
