"Some Chords" is a song by Canadian electronic music producer deadmau5 released on 3 May 2010 as the first single from his fifth studio album 4×4=12. The track was featured in an episode of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation entitled "Pool Shark".[2]

A remix by Dillon Francis was released for the 5 Years of mau5 compilation/remix album. A remix contest was also hosted by Beatport Play, in which participants were given the parts to rework Francis' version of the song.[3] The winner of the contest was Andrei Stephen, whose remix is expected to see an official release through mau5trap, and the runner up was Approaching Nirvana, as determined by the community's votes.[3]

Music video[edit]

Deadmau5 had held a competition using Wooshii which asked fans to create a video to go along with the song. The competition lasted 2 weeks and had over 82 pitches. The winning video was directed by Chris Lee, and produced by Pommez Films. It features a person named Tom who has a snare drum for a head. [4]
