Overcome

[oh-ver-kuhm]
"Overcome" is a song by alternative rock group Live, which was released as the second single from their 2001 album, V.

The song became associated with the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, and proceeds from the sale of the single were donated to charities to benefit the victims of the attack.

The song was not released as a commercially purchasable single in the United States. It failed to chart on Billboard's Hot 100 Airplay chart, but peaked at #30 on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart.

Musical structure

The song is in the key of B minor, based around a natural minor piano melody, with a harmony of Bm D A E, which acts as the introduction and chorus of the song and is in 4/4 time. The verses follow a harmony of an F# minor chord falling to E major. There is a bridge between the second and third chorus, consisting of an adaption of the chorus chords, with the B minor being replaced by an F# minor, F#m D A E, but without the songs characteristic piano melody. The song opens and closes on an arpegiated B minor chord.
