Eleanor just submitted 5 Seconds of Summer and this Plain White T’s track which followed a note by Mark that pointed out “Thorn Tree in the Garden” by Derek and the Dominos (which featured Eric Clapton and the original “Layla” recording). I think the Dominos track is a bit of a stretch so I edited two phrases in the verse together to emphasize the melody. It seems that if you’re writing a sad acoustic ballad this is a good go-to melody.

If Thorn Tree in the Garden is a stretch, try Birdhouse in Your Soul by They Might Be Giants (1989). Anyway, it can’t have been too much of a stretch, otherwise you wouldn’t have posted it.
