The new Theory Forum seems the right place to air out a little theory question that's nagging me. In the Cole Porter standard Love for Sale, all the fake books and hand-written chord sheets I've seen show the tonic chord(3rd bar) as a minor. Why? The melody opens with octave, 6 5... no hint of a minor tonality. In fact the natural 6 strongly suggests major chord to me. Also, the key signature is always the major. (i.e. the song is usually in Bflat the key sig is 2 flat not 5 flats) But the Bbflat chords are all minor! My ear tells me that Bb has a major third. What does Talkbass Nation say?
