Spooky key change from the Rocky Horror Picture Show. Half step up at the end. Take it away Janet.

The chorus of this song rocks it in D major, jumps to F major at the end of the song, goes back to D and then visits B major on the last time around. Oh Mercles, you rule my world. Queen is the best at what they do. Best part of the video is Brian May singing.

It's not surprising that Rufus & Chaka Khan's "Sweet Thing" is one of the most soulful songs ever written, as it features the Queen of Soul Herself on vocals. The sunny, uptempo-but-relaxed groove is in A until about two minutes in, at which point it modulates up a half-step to Bb. Complete flames.
Here's a fun one from the George Baker Selection. The key goes from G up half a step to G# just before the last chorus. And here's a weird video of George Baker and said selection drinking wine in what looks like a pizza kitchen.
