Something’s Coming does not follow a standard song structure such as verse and chorus. Instead it is held together by three ideas or themes which are heard throughout the song and presented in different ways.
In the first theme the tritone is between the bass note C and the F sharp in the vocal line. The F sharp resolves onto a G. Theme A conveys a tentative mood.
The second theme contrasts with theme B. There are declamatory repeated notes and the use of accents. In theme B the mood is much more confident, it has a loud dynamic and accented notes.
In the third theme there is a use of long sustained notes, legato phrases and rising intervals. Theme C uses a lyrical melody which conveys an optimistic mood.
