My favorite one-chord songs.

The other day I posted about how one chord can make a song, and in the comments section, my friend Chaco D wrote that he thought my post was going to be about one-chord songs. (Gotta work on my titles!). He comment got me to thinking: what are the best one chord songs? I wracked my brain and came up with very few, then went to Google, which revealed nothing, so now I’m back to wracking my brain. Here’s what I’ve got so far:

WORKING CLASS HERO, JOHN LENNON

CHAIN OF FOOLS, DON COVAY (SUNG BY ARETHA FRANKLIN)

LOSER, BECK

(tried Google again, got these from Guitar Pedagogy)

TOMORROW NEVER KNOWS, JOHN LENNON, PAUL MCCARTNEY

WE WILL ROCK YOU, QUEEN

BAD TO THE BONE, GEORGE THOROGHGOOD

RUN THROUGH THE JUNGLE, JOHN FOGERTY

BULLET THE BLUE SKY, U2

COCONUT, HARRY NILSSON

EXODUS, BOB MARLEY

HEY, BO DIDDLEY, BO DIDDLEY
