Let Me Entertain You chords and progressions (lesson preview)

Let Me Entertain You Analysis + TAB

Built around a four-bar chord progression that seemingly loops forever, Let Me Entertain You has a few important variations going on.

The verse is moving I – bIIIx – IV – I, maintaining that I chord’s root. Every other time we use a sus4 on the IV chord, like this:

| F | Ab/F | Bb/F | F |
| F | Ab/F | Bb/F (Bbsus4/F) | F |

We are breaking plenty of harmonic rules here. The IV chord shouldn’t have sus4 as IV is Lydian.

The bIIIx chord is outside the key. In a way, we are in F Ionian (F, chord I), F Aeolian (for the Ab chord), and F Mixolydian (for the Bbsus4 chord) during this progression. The result of this modal interchange is tension.

For the bridge and chorus, we use the same progression but simply don’t keep that F in the bass.

As a guitarist, your part will be different depending on how big the band you’re playing in is. As a general rule, the bigger the band, the less you’ll end up playing.

Let Me Entertain You – The second big single from Life thru a Lens!

Robbie Williams‘ epic Let Me Entertain You sounds like it was written to open a show, very much like Diana Ross‘ legendary I’m Coming Out.

This was the 5th single from Robbie’s debut album, Life thru a Lens (1997) where the first three had flopped, the 4th being his signature song, Angels.

Having just left Take That, Robbie had to succeed or he’d been a laughing stock for leaving one of the biggest boybands in the world.

He must have gotten nervous when the first three singles flopped and then equally as relieved when his two biggest tunes came next.

His next album, I’ve Been Expecting You (1998) was arguably better with singles Strong, No Regrets, and She’s The One.

I guess there’s a certain power that comes with a debut album.
