Cake - Frank Sinatra
Another thing I’m learning with this project is the beauty of a simple song with many layers. Here you have four chords for four minutes. Normally that would bore the shit out of people and they’d be reaching for the dial or heading for the door. However, few bands layer harmonies into a mix as well as Cake, and it’s the harmonies (built from dead-simple musical lines spread across various instruments) that drive this song.
