GREATEST KEY CHANGE OF ALL TIME

NOW THIS: Area Man Attempts Harmonies On Greatest Key Change Of All Time, Earth Wind & Fire “After The Love Has Gone” (1979)

I love key changes in pop music, especially when it’s an over-the-top “Truck Driver Gear Change” (TDGC) that digs in deep. A couple years ago, I was so obsessed at the time that I created a spreadsheet compiling songs and when the change occurs (view those 315 songs here). The songs are also on my corresponding Spotify playlist here. Reply with your favorites so we can share the goosebump feels.

My Top 10 Favorite Key Changes:
Earth Wind & Fire – “After The Love Has Gone”
Genesis – “Invisible Touch”
Dave Clark Five – “Glad All Over”
Herb Alpert – “A Taste Of Honey”
Lesley Gore – “You Don’t Own Me”
Cheryl Lynn – “Got To Be Real”
James Ingram (ft. Michael McDonald) – “Yah Mo B There”
Beyoncé – “Love On Top”
Pointer Sisters – “Jump”
Boyz II Men – “On Bended Knee”
