Listening booth — “When Friends Fall Out”

Oooh, a special Saturday edition of the booth! Here’s my latest song obsession, “When Friends Fall Out” by the Guess Who. This is the version that appears on the group’s classic 1970 effort, American Woman. The verse portions are pretty good, if not a little standard. What really elevates this Randy Bachman/Burton Cummings tune, however, are the jazzy pre-chorus and the gorgeous chord structure and vocals in the chorus.

Enjoy “When Friends Fall Out” (Bachman/Cummings)
