Jeff Buckley - Grace - 1994
The song is about ******* moving from L.A. to New York to be with someone he loved; he's not afraid of what lies ahead because he's in love ("Though it's my time coming, I'm not afraid, afraid to die."); often sung in falsetto.

Jeff Buckley - Grace - 1994
The piece starts quietly, with 2 electric guitars playing (one DISTORTED and one not); EERIE WAILING in the background through a SYNTHESIZER; dynamics are increased by bringing in more instruments (after a few bars the bass and drums come in).

Jeff Buckley - Grace - 1994
By the end of the piece there's a full rock band playing (heavy drums, screaming vocals, wailing guitars); instruments don't get louder but more are added to make it more INTENSE; it's in 12/8, with four dotted crotchet beats in a bar.
4 of 6
Jeff Buckley - Grace - 1994
It feels faster than 12/8 because semiquaver runs are played at the beginning; it has a typical verse-chorus structure, with a guitar solo towards the end, and the intro is repeated after the choruses and the piece ends with an outro; 4 main riffs.

In the final section of the piece, the vocals build up to a screaming climax; the riffs add texture to the piece; EQ and delay are used and flangers are added in the studio; unusual chord progressions; MAIN PART OF THE PIECE IS IN Em.
