It's from the alternate ending to the Doors where Jim gets sober and gets his act together.

How to write whiny music:
Step 1. Find a church hymnal.
Step 2. Transpose to minor key.
Step 3. Increase tempo until you can sob to it comfortably.

Yaxe: GAT_00: The message loses something with major keys.  It's too...hopeful.

Minor keys are supposed to sound "sad" whilst major keys are supposed to sound "bright".


Boys have a "penis" and girls have a "vagina".

vernonFL: I forgot how gay that video was.


Whenever I see it, I hear Weird Al's voice-over in my head, particularly the hand-farts when Michael Stipe is flapping his arms.

Jon iz teh kewl: Lenny_da_Hog: FlashHarry: still a couple of minor chords in there, but, yes, that was interesting.

Major keys contain minor chords. ii and vi are commonly used to lead to the V.

I was singing that as "Yeaaaaah, something else matterrrrrsss ...."

That must be how Bob Ross' ears filter music, by major scaling everything.

Rebecca Watson posted this same link the other day. I watched and diskliked it then.
I watched and disliked it now.

Maybe it's because I know and like the original, but it just sounds all wrong to me.
