It Must Have Been Love

Easy Piano Cover

"It Must Have Been Love", is a song written by Per Gessle and performed by the Swedish pop duo Roxette and released in 1987.

The power ballad was a number one hit in the United States and was written for the soundtraack to the 1990 film, Pretty Woman.

My goal, when arranging a song, is always, to create a super easy piano arrangement that sounds good and is fun to play.

I learned "It Must Have Been Love" by Roxette from a lead sheet, which is sheet music that just shows the right-hand melody and chord symbols. Lead sheets in book form are called Fake Books, aka Real Books.

I improvised the left hand part by using blocked, and I played a simple, single-note melody line with my right hand.

Before I knew any chords, it would take me weeks, sometimes months, to learn a new song. After I started learning chords, I could learn a new song in less than an hour. I was able to do this because I no longer had to read the music notes on the bass clef.

Knowing chords allows me to create my own piano arrangements. Now all I read is the right hand melody on the treble clef.
