Sheet music (if for some godforsaken reason you need the sheet music for this): https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bxr3sxXr4Cocb2JQempJRkVKZUU/view?usp=sharing All Star by Smash Mouth but it's partwritten for four voices following the compositional rules established by Bach, which include (but are not limited to) sounding every note of a given chord, avoiding parallel motion octaves and fifths, doubling the root of non-inverted chords, resolving leading tones appropriately, and of course, following the established chart of chord progressions to prevent retrogression. And it's fully notated with Roman numeral and figured bass analysis, as well as non-chord tones. It's not perfect okay, crucify me; I know there's some stuff Bach wouldn't have done but I had to keep it interesting. I was going to mark cadences as well but there really aren't any good cadential phrases except for some awkward place in the middle of the song so I didn't bother. Whatever. And there's an organ. Climaxes with some Whitacre junk and The Lick. Happy freaking Channukkah Jacob
