Throwback Wednesday: Eve/Gwen Listen to Song, Lyrics, Chords/Tab

Every now and then we get a song that becomes an anthem for a generation – one where everyone at every club takes a drink or moves to the dancefloor. Gwen Stefani is a repeat offender in this category – constantly reinventing herself. In the 90s with “No Doubt” she brought a new flavor of Ska/Punk to the forefront – singing a number of powerful driving songs that you could rock out to – or dance to (Spiderwebs, Sunday Morning). As Gwen Moved on in her career her music became much more pop though still much different from the pack. She was fed off her Japanese dancers and created a sound that is modern and relevant even today. Her vocal shifted slightly from melodic to a more “rap” style that made her even more awesome even as she got older. She ended up launching “Lamb” and was one of the first celebrities to really make a splash on the fashion scene. The turning point for her and for me as a listener was when she teamed up with eve and did “Let me blow your mind”. I was still seeing her as the punk/ska singer from No Doubt – and this track took that expectation and literally blew my mind with her fresh sound. The video was also dramatic – it was epic in the sense that Eve and Gwen were even working together – but look at the costumed and how chiseled Gwens’ body was – she must have been doing a thousand sit ups a day. Give the track a listen if you havent heard it in a while – and if want to play along on an instrument of sing along to the lyrics – please look below.

Below are the tabs.. the riff is hard to play because its so high up on the neck – I am assuming it was played lower but manipulated with an octave pedal. There are only 2 chords in this song G#m and C#m – listen for the changes – the bass is fat so it is easy to play along.

“Let Me Blow Ya Mind”
(feat. Gwen Stefani)

[Eve]
Uh, uh, uh, huh
Yo, yo
Drop your glasses, shake your asses
Face screwed up like you having hot flashes
Which one, pick one, this one, classic
Red from blonde, yeah bitch I’m drastic
Why this, why that, lips stop askin
Listen to me baby, relax and start passin
Expressway, hair back, weavin through the traffic
This one strong should be labeled as a hazard
Some of y’all niggas hot, sike I’m gassin
Clowns I spot em and I can’t stop laughin
Easy come, easy go, E-V gon’ be lastin
Jealousy, let it go, results could be tragic
Some of y’all aint writin well, too concerned with fashion
None of you aint Gizelle, cat walk and imagine
Alotta y’all Hollywood, drama, passed it
Cut bitch, camera off, real shit, blast it

[CHORUS: Gwen Stefani]
And if I had to give you more
It’s only been a year
Now I got my foot through the door
And I aint goin nowhere
It took awhile to get me in
And I’m gonna take my time
Don’t fight that good shit in your ear
Now let me blow ya mind

[Eve]
They wanna bank up, crank up, makes me dizzy
Shank up, haters wanna come after me
You aint a ganster, prankster, too much to eat
Snakes in my path wanna smile up at me

Now while you grittin your teeth
Frustration baby you gotta breathe
Take alot more than you to get rid of me
You see I do what they can’t do, I just do me
Aint no stress when it comes to stage, get what you see
Meet me in the lab, pen and pad, don’t believe
Huh, sixteens mine, create my own lines
Love for my wordplay that’s hard to find
Sophomore, I aint scared, one of a kind
All I do is contemplate ways to make your fans mine
Eyes bloodshot, stressin, chills up your spine
Huh, sick to your stomach wishing I wrote your rhymes

[CHORUS]

[Eve]
Let your bones crack
Your back pop, I can’t stop
Excitement, glock shots from your stash box
Fuck it, thugged out, I respect the cash route
Locked down, blastin, sets while I mash out
Yeah nigga, mash out, D-R-E
Back track, think back, E-V-E
Do you like that (ooooh), you got to I know you
Had you in a trance first glance from the floor too
Don’t believe I’ll show you, take you with me
Turn you on, pension gone, give you relief
Put your trust in a bomb when you listen to me
‘Dancin much, get it all? now I’m complete, uh huh
Still stallion, brick house, pile it on
Ryde or Die, bitch, double R, can’t crawl
Beware, cuz I crush anything I land on
Me here, aint no mistake nigga it was planned on

[CHORUS]
