You’ve Got The Love Chords: Learn the progressions!


The chords for You’ve Got The Love which you find above are from Florence + the Machine‘s version. Originally, this was written by The Source and sung by Candi Staton in 1986.

When Florence released her version, the song saw a revival and came back into the covers band repertoire where it has since stayed, often used at the end of the setlist as a finale or even encore.

Essentially a II – I – V progression in the key of F#, the V chord is varied with sus4 most of the time, like this:

||: G#m | F# | C# | C#sus4 C# :||

Sometimes, we scrap the sus4. For the end, the piano adds 6 and sus2 extensions during the outro. You could experiment with playing fills using the C# Major Pentatonic as that would embrace those notes.

As the vocal melody is using the F# Major Pentatonic, experiment with this scale as well, perhaps blending licks in C# with F#, rather than finding one scale that fits all as doing this will create more musical licks.

The best way to approach You’ve Got The Love’s chords is to vary the chord shapes. This will keep the interest up, without getting in the way. Try long delays when you just hold the chords for a bar each.

If you want to apply some rhythms, save that for the C#sus4C# movement only as this is what happens on the recording.
