II7 - V of V chord - Chord

Other Chord progressions

From Ger Tillekens Words and chords [links added by me]:

The next cluster of chords consists of the relative* Major chords the supertonic II, the submediant VI and the mediant III. These chords supply their own surplus of meaning to the lyrics. We already observed the supertonic in "I Want To Hold Your Hand" the first time the Beatles applied this particular chord in their compositions. In "Eight Days A Week" the Beatles use this same chord more boldly, taking a direct step from the tonic to the supertonic at the start of a song. For once they were not the first ones to introduce an harmonic novelty. By a few months they were overtaken by the Rolling Stones' composition "As Tears Go By." For the Beatles the supertonic completed the cluster of relative Major chords. The Lennon' composition "There's A Place" shows how these relative Majors were applied semantically in the Beatles' songs, underlining an individual utterance, that's being felt so strong that it escapes from the confines of the private into the openess of the public, for everybody out there to hear (example 4).

*) The terms "relative" and "parallell" are confusing. It seems that the terminology varies from country to country/language to language. I would use "parallell" here, but I cannot tell what is correct - if there is a correct answer here. See more in the Relative minor lesson.
