What Becomes of the Broken Hearted

A key change can be heard in this famous Jimmy Ruffins tune, modulating from A in the verse to B in the chorus.

Nothing But Flowers

I know someone told me this song had a key change in it but I can't remember who referred it. It just popped up on my iTunes and refreshed my memory. Whole step key change at the end.
I first heard this in my least favorite Kevin Smith film Clerks Two.

Back To The 101

When Albert Hammond Jr. wrote his solo album, it made the world realize that the reason they actually like the Strokes is because of Albert Hammond Jr. Awesome key change here at 2:37. It goes down a half step (always cool when the key change goes down) and the lyrics change from "Back to the 101" to "I count the 101." Killer album, fried and frizzy hair, silly strats, and kickin key change.

Contact High

The last chorus makes a huge jump from F# to A.
