I don`t understand near enough about music, but our elementary school music teacher did this kind of thing on the piano: the major version of a tune would sound like a a happy summer song and the minor one like a dirge. It was one lesson I remembered.

The dripping water at the beginning made me have to pause the video and go pee. That was a pretty interesting video though.

That`s why the majority of blues & rock based music is played using minor scales. The note progression in a major scale sounds happier, if you flatten the 3rd, 5th, & 7th notes of a major scale you get what is called the "blue note"

Key vice scale. Very cool concept, but, in this case, for me, anyway, the song loses all of its depth and angst (which, of course, is part of the flavor playing in a minor key can give you).

Now that was a fantastic post. The song is still excellent even in major. Now how about doing Shiny Happy People in minor?
