                         POPULAR by Nada Surf
                         --------------------


From: Mathieu Bertrane 

-Main riff:

e------------------------------------------------------
B------0-------0-------0-------0-----------------------
G------------------------------------------------------
D------------------------------------------------------
A--3-3-----3-3---0-2-2---2-----------------------------
E--------------------------0-0-------------------------

(Sometime there are others notes you can hear if you listen really carefully
to the song, but you can live without them :-).....In fact, I didn't want to
write them, but remember, it's the first version)

OK here they are:

e------------------------------------------------------
B------0-------0---------------0-----------------------
G------------------------------------------------------
D------------------------------------------------------
A--3-3-----3-3---0-2-3-2-0-----------------------------
E--------------------------0-0-------------------------


-Something you can call the Bridge:


e------------------------------------
B------------------------------------
G------5-------5-------4-------4-----
D----5---5---5---5---4---4---4---4---
A--3-------3-------2-------2---------
E------------------------------------


-here is another one bridge which is played before the chorus
(thanks to Johan Strm (ted.strom@mbox318.swipnet.se))

e-----------------------------------
B-----------------------------------
G------2-------2--------4-------4---
D----4---4---4---4----4---4---4---4-
A--3-------3--------2-------2-------
E-----------------------------------


-Chorus:

e------------------------------------------------------------------
B------------------------------------------------------------------
G------------------------------------------------------------------
D---77777777-55555555-77777777-55555555-33333333-3/101010--101010--
A---77777777-55555555-77777777-55555555-33333333-3/101010--101010--
E---55555555-33333333-55555555-33333333-11111111-1/8-8-8---8-8-8---


A second guitar plays:           

(when the first guitar              e---7-5-5----5-3-3--------
plays -1111...)                     B-------------------------
                                    G-------------------------
                                    D-------------------------
                                    A------------------------- 
                                    E-------------------------


-The order is: the riff, bridge, riff, bridge, riff, bridge, chorus, riff,
bridge, chorus, riff, then: 


-this other bridge

e---------------------------
B---------------------------
G--------------------4-4-2--
D-----5-5-7---5----4--------
A---3------------2----------
E---------------------------

[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/n/nada_surf/popular_tab_ver_3.html ]
-Then the main riff, but you must play with heavier distortion,
and the B--0-- have to be played more louder than the A--3-3..-2-2--..
OK?
-Then the third bridge (very fast):

e------------------------------
B------------------------------
G--555555555555--444444444444--
D--555555555555--444444444444--
A--333333333333--222222222222--
E------------------------------

-Then the chorus (two times), and at the end: e-----
                                              B-----
                                              G-----
                                              D--7--
                                              A--7--
                                              E--5--



-For those who want the lyrics (me for example), here they are:



Three important rules for breaking up: Don't put off breaking up when you
know you want to. Prolonging the situation only
makes it worse. Tell him honestly, simply, kindly, but firmly. Don't make a
big production. Don't make up an elaborate story.
This will help you avoid a big tear jerking scene. If you wanna date other
people say so. Be prepared for the boy to feel hurt
and rejected. Even if you've gone together for only a short time, and
haven't been too serious, there's still a feeling of rejection
when someone says she preferres the company of others to your exclusive
company, but if you're honest, and direct, and avoid
making a flowery emotional speech when you brake the news, the boy will
respect you for your frankness, and honestly he'll
apeciate the kind of straight foward manner in which you told him your
decision. Unless he's a real jerk or a cry baby you'll
remain friends

CHORUS:

I'm head of the class.
I'm popular.
I'm a quarter back.
I'm popular.
My mom says I'm a catch.
I'm popular.
I'm never last picked, I got a cheerleader chick

Being attractive is the most important thing there is. If you wanna catch
the biggest fish in your pond you have to be as
attractive as possible. Make sure to keep your hair spotless and clean. Wash
it aleast every 2 weeks, once every 2 weeks and
if you see Jonny football hero in the hall tell him he played a great game.
Tell him you like his article in the newspaper

CHORUS:

I'm the party star.
I'm popular.
I've got my own car.
I'm popular
I'll never get caught.
I'm popular.
I make football bets, I'm a teachers pet.

I purpose we support a 1 month limit on going steady. I think It will keep
you both more able to deal with weird situation, and
get to know more people. I think if you're ready to go out with Jonny, Now's
the time to tell him about your one month limit.
He wont mind he'll apreciate your fresh look on dating. And once you've
dated someone else you can date him again. I'm sure
he'll like it. Everyone will appreciate it. You so novel what a good idea
you can keep you time to your self, you don't need date
insurance you can go out with whoever you want to every boy, every boy, in
the whole world could be yours if you'll just listen
to my plan.
                   "THE TEENAGE GUIDE TO POPULARITY"
