Formal structure of "Tell Me Why:
Intro (chorus) 0:00-0:06*
Verse 1 0:25-0:37
Verse 2 0:55-1:08
Middle 8 1:27-1:42
Coda (chorus/ind.) 1:58-2:08*
Comments: The intro (four measures long and characterized primarily by two elements: the syncopated guitar chords Em7 and A7, and the energetic drum patterns) is spun out from the brief fill in the chorus (0:14-15, 0:45-46, 1:15-16) by repeating that fill and those chords four times in a row. That drum fill returns in the coda, but with independent chords.
