Happy Sad Songs and Sad Happy Songs

This is such a cool video! The Gregory Brothers from youtube took songs in minor keys and made them major and vice versa. It’s really neat how much a third and a seventh (I think that’s the difference??) makes a change to a song.

I love what they did with the arrangements and how each song gets a new settings and the different instruments used throughout the video.

Basically I’ve been playing this on repeat and probably have the order and all the words memorized….. My favourite is hands down Eleanor Rigby but Let It Go and New York are actually really good too! Not a fan of Radioactive though, way too jarring.

What do you guys think? Is this not the best thing ever?
