Hey, kids! Do you like playing a song with a cool, distinctive piano riff? Of course you do!

Do you like playing that one same riff for three minutes straight WITH NO VARIATION WHATSOEVER??? Because if you do then Warren Zevon's "Werewolves of London" may be the song for you!

To add insult to injury, the song ends five seconds after you play a cute little scale on the right side of the keys. You might enjoy playing that if you haven't zoned out from boredom induced by playing the same thing for four minutes straight.

In conclusion, this song blows on keyboard. In fact, I'd say it's even worse than Before I Forget, The Beautiful People, etcetera. At least with those songs you could walk away from the keyboard and take a shit in the middle of the song and not fail out.

This is a unique song, and not just in the fact that it's about Werewolves of London. No, what's unique about this song is that there is only a single four-bar rhythm repeated throughout.


It does more with this rhythm than most songs do with multiple ones. There's routine small HO/PO chains thrown in every few bars. There's the addition of hammer-on alternating notes, or a change in a note at the end of a rhythm, or a change in the strum pattern.

Really, despite being one rhythm, this song varies enough for the time it's there that it pushes towards four-star enjoyment for me, but I can understand that a lot of people could get hung up on the fact that underneath all its dressing (though there is a lot) it's a single rhythm throughout.
