Like he did on "I'm Walking
," Domino made sure the beginning of this song was quite memorable, since if the hook comes right at the beginning, it's more likely to be heard.
You may not know the lyrics, but you probably know how the song starts:You made... (bomp bomp)
Me cry... (bomp bomp)
When you said... (bomp bomp)
Goodbye... (bomp bomp)
Ain't that a shame
This was a favorite songwriting trick of Domino's, as he looked for a good, simple section to start a song. And even though songs like this one were often attached to melancholy lyrics, it was the sound that Domino felt was important - if he could make it sound happy, it would evoke pleasant memories.
