    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.

    This is epic. It changes the song into a happy sing-along pop song, although the mandolin bring switched into the major...
