BoingBoing was passing around this variation on a theme: R.E.M.’s downbeat classic “Losing My Religion,” retuned, the minor keys replaced with major keys. It was startling, especially for someone like me who wallows in mournful songs until all hours of the night.
The same audio wizard has similarly reworked this classic from my past:
Major Scaled #3: The Doors-“Riders On The Rainbow” from major scaled on Vimeo.
It’s like they’re almost happy to be going.
