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.

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.

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.
