4-2. I Got Rhythm
Composer: George Gershwin
Year: 1930
The song came from the musical” Girl Crazy”, was originally penned in the key of D flat major.
The song melody uses four notes of the five-note pentatonic scale, first rising, then falling. A
rhythmic interest in the song is that the tune keeps behind the main pulse, with the three "I
got..." phrases syncopated, appearing one beat behind in the first bar, while the fourth phase
"Who could..." rushes in to the song. Its chord progression, known as the "rhythm changes", is
the foundation for many other popular jazz tunes. The song has become symbolic of the
Gershwin, of swing, and of the 1920s.
