Soul to Squeeze

This is an unorthodox song structure: the first 8 measure are in A major, but it moves down two whole steps to F major and stays there for the rest of the song. It's a cool surprise every time (key changes are generally towards the end of most pop songs) and adds subtle complexity to an otherwise simple but beautiful rock/pop ballad.

Oh, and the bassline is one of the best ever written. Period.
