The sad part about this is that the TV industry treats this like a magic trick. Take some crappy WB show, put a normally upbeat song in minor key, and place it over some sappy scene to make it sound meaningful and deep.

It's not. It's fucking Tubthumping. He's still getting knocked down and getting back up again. The song isn't better, it's just slow and weepy now.

By the way I've never heard Tubthumping in minor key, but if I had it would be, like, the best example of this trend ever.

Nice one. I enjoy much of Bill Bailey's stuff, and this is one of my favourites (but I'm biased because I've a son who plays the bassoon)

Thanks!  But now the cat is out of the bag.  Trump will surely want the national anthem to be played in a minor key at all events due to it sounding somewhat Russian.
