    Losing My Religion (shifted to a Major Key)

    A friend emailed me a link to this video (by way of BoingBoing)

    Someone put “Losing My Religion” by REM through some processing, and turned the song from a minor to a major key.  While you can hear the occasional pitch-shiftiness on the vocals, and one or two chord changes don’t seem to settle in quite perfectly, the impact is nonetheless absolutely fascinating.  What had been a linchpin of 90’s alternative melancholia and loner rock becomes this almost defiant pop perk of a track.

    Weird, I’m not sure of how to process this.

    it’s weird bc I’ve always always found major key music more melancholy. Probably because of my synesthesia? Major key...

    I’m conflicted between laughter that someone did this and wanting to buy it because it sounds good.
