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.
I want a breathy, twee indie band to cover this and make the Zooey Deschanel movie makeover complete.
