A Lover's Concerto

This song always makes me think of Mr. Holland's Opus. It's based on the the piece "Minuet in G major". The main difference is the song is changed from 3/4 to 4/4 timing,
A Lover's Concerto has two half step key changes. Starting G then up to G# and ending in A.

I Am Glad, Cause I'm Finally Returning Back Home

A total of three key changes are heard in this popular internet gem, with an ultimate return to the song's initial key in the last 30 seconds. Given that this number appears to have been recorded in the 1960's, I always assumed Trololo Guy, Mr. Eduard Khil, was actually singing about returning from West Germany or the front.

Kisses Sweeter Than Wine

This song has some pretty awesome lyrics. I really enjoy the stop in the hook, and I am in love with the key change between each verse. Boo-ya-kasha.

I Have Nothing

This is such an unbelievably dorky project, and I love every bit of it. The key change hit its peak with ’90s divas and this blog sheds light on some of these anthems, however Whitney Houston’s key change in “I Have Nothing” (the greatest key change of all time) is surprisingly missing from the list. Somewhere, underneath a pile of white dust, a legend cries.

Dream Lover

Nothing says hot fun in the summertime like Bobby Darin music (except Hot Fun in the Summertime by Sly and the Family Stone). Key change at 1:50 surrounded by glorious ah's, amazing arpeggios, and crooning do dat do dat da do's.
