What do the Beatles' "It's Only Love" and "Benefit of Mr. Kite" have in common? Just noticed this.
That's what I was going to say. Better look at the harmony, though, as that is usually what people are hearing that invokes comparison.
Yeah, each descends three half steps then a whole step.
Are they the same key too? I don't have audio at work to check...
I don't know, descending bass line starting on C in the verse sections? The chords aren't really the same, especially their function and also that Mr. Kite is in a minor key.
Kite chords are ... Cmin - G/B - Bb - Dm/A - G
Only Love is ... Cmaj - Em/B - Bb - F/A - G - G+
Good observation! I'd never noticed.
OBSERVATION -- The Beatles (Lennon & McCartney) tended to use a lot of descending lines in their songs, but certainly not EVERY song however. MICHELLE is an early example.
