Clasic: ea pleacă, dând naștere unei melodii celebre

Billie Joe Armstrong:

"At the time I wrote Good Riddance, I was breaking up with a girl that was moving to Ecuador, and I was trying to be as understanding about it as I could. I wrote the song as kind of a bon voyage. I was trying not to be bitter, but I think it came out a little bit bitter anyway. I thought that calling the song "Time of Your Life" was just a little too level-headed for me, so I had to come up with something different".

On the album version, at the beginning, Billie Joe Armstrong makes a mistake (the 3rd string of the open G chord is played instead of the 4th), tries again, repeats the mistake, and in anger swears in a barely audible voice. (foarte tare că au lăsat asta pe album!) In between tries, the faint click of a digital metronome can be discerned as well.

The song is set in common time and composed in the key of G major. The first verse features arpeggiated chords, but Billie Joe begins strumming a typical folk rhythm after the first chorus. The song follows three chord progressions. The verse progression is a I-IV-V (G-C-D), the pre chorus progression is a vi-V-IV-I (Em-D-C-G), and the chorus is a vi-I-vi-I-vi-V (Em-G-Em-G-Em-D). The interlude with strings also uses these chords.

Textul de mai sus este luat de pe Wiki. Eu m-am gândit să cânt asta din pat, că prea le trăgeam pe toate de la birou, apoi mi-am dat seama că, în clip, Billie Joe cântă pe o canapea într-un dormitor. Oarecum similar deci, dar n-am vrut să-l imit.
