    Re: Rooftop

    Does anybody know the time signature for the chorus? it's probably super easy like 4/4 but I just can't wrap my head around.

    The bridge is AWESOME. But I'm not a huge fan of the rest of the song

    Looks like the band read my post from October and built my idea into the bridge.

    Re: Rooftop

    The bridge starting with "I gave you the best of me," is such a classic DMB piece of music. Really catchy and feel good. Not a big fan of the chorus of this song, although I like the verse. I've been listening to the Blossom tape and I could listen to the bridge 50 times in a row.

    I like this song a lot but if the chorus was as good as the verses and bridge this song would be unreal

    Fully agreed... this song is so bad, I can barely listen to it.

    I like this song less and less as time goes on...

    Lyrics are just too bad to overlook.

    Re: Rooftop

    The bridge is fantastic. I wish the bridge was a song.

    I see that seems to be the general theme of the thread.

    If Only is actually good, IMO. The Hollywood Bowl 2012 pro-shot video on Youtube is a great version.

    Agreed on "MRSA" though. Lol...boring musically and the lyrics are cringeworthy. Rooftop's lyrics are embarrassing as well. The chorus is so bad...
