The Buggles 
Video Killed the Radio Star (1979)
(Geoff Downes, Trevor Horn, Bruce Woolley)

From: "The Age of Plastic"

The chord sheet contains the basic chords which may be enough to strum 
along on a guitar. It is a little difficult because often the chords are 
not played on the beat but are syncopated (whenever the VERSE chords are 
used and in the SOLO, too). It is important to retain this feel, as it is 
responsible for the drive of these parts.

The split chords in the VERSE part may be played as regular chords, too 
(but the 3rd in the bass gives it that special extra, I think). The split 
chords in the INTERLUDE are essential and should stay.

In the tabs, I added the arpeggios, voicings and melody lines for anyone 
who would like to get into the track a little deeper. I tried to make it 
playable for guitar players, still the piano pattern in the verse might 
take a little until it flows along effortlessly. (At least it was like that 
for me ...)

Comments and suggestions are highly welcome!

                        Another well tabbed song, and including all the bass note changes which a lot of tabbers don't bother with. I was going to submit a version, but it would be too close to your excellent work.The only difference I could hear is on the Dm/F chords, which I would play as F6. In the LINK 2, I would also play F6 instead of the Dm's. In the INTERLUDE for the Am I would play an Am9, again just a personal preference.A great little pop song, I also like co-writer 'Bruce Woolley (& The Camera Club)'s much cleaner, and less produced version too. His 'English garden' album never really got the recognition it deserved.
