I think I found a song for the Major 7th.  It's Diary by Bread.  I'm quite sure the first two notes of the song are G - F#.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=24IfD-0VUu4

OK, the jokes for knowing this song may begin ......

I don't hear that on the lyric - I hear prime, prime, descending major 3rd on the words "I found your".

I didn't get my guitar out to try it, but the intro that plays base note/chord could well be G to Gmaj7 (which would contain an F#) - anyone?

In any event - I find the major 7th interval so distinctive (both ascending & descending) that it is one of the easiest intervals to identify, so I've given up looking for a song to match.

how about the chorus of "take on me" by A-ha for the major 7th: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=djV11Xbc914#t=53s

Think I will stick with superman.
If I were a teenage girl then yeah the chorus of Aha works.
Faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful when combined with the minor blues scale.
If you add the major 6th is it a bird or a plane .
No it the super duper how do you love voodoo blues.

Playing this may give you super power to do many cool lick, not sure about what licks you can get from A-ha.
None that will rock for sure ;D

Sounds corny (unless you're a drama geek like me), but my wife is a vocal music major, and for learning the major 7th, she suggested the song Maria from West Side Story.  Not the opening, but when he actually sings her name "Mareeee-uh".

Do you mean the first notes: "There's a" (place for us) as a minor 7th? Maybe there's a major 7th in there somewhere, too? Of course, as I've mentioned before in another thread, I think it's a really bad idea to use these mnemonics anyway. I've found it endlessly frustrating unlearning them.

For minor 3rd interval, does anyone think that the "so long, farewell" song in the sound of music can be used as song reference as well? :)

In the example of desc. min. 7th.  I DID NOT see any minor 7th jump in the 3rd bar of Take the A train. In my opinion this song's example should be removed from the chart. This chart has helped me a lot in other examples so I have a great expectations from it... this incorrect example should not confuse future learners and waste any more time of others! thanks

HEy everyone,

I am currently working on Justin's ear training and was wondering, whether or not the list might need some further songs of reference. Especially for those film-maniacs I would recommend some additions to it :)
Justin mentioned there are not many songs for a 6th major. One very famous song is "Leia's Theme" from Star Wars (adding another Star Wars song might be a great addition for those who stdy them anyway).

Cheers,

Lukas

For the octave and the minor7th major 7th you have the first notes of elegy by the Jesus Lizard.
