Here’s something fun for a Sunday afternoon.

I stumbled across this song yesterday, and now I can’t stop listening to it. I’ve heard REM’s “Losing My Religion” about a million times before, and personally, I don’t have any particularly strong feelings for it. I don’t love it; I don’t hate it.

Enter Major Scaled TV, an artist who digitally alters music to convert minor-scale songs into major-scale songs.

For the non-musically inclined, here’s a translation: he makes sad songs sound happier. Dark songs become lighter. Somber notes turn cheery.

It’s like dipping your iPod into a vat of liquid Prozac.

See for yourself:

According to the artist’s Facebook page, it looks like the major video-hosting websites are yanking down his creations due to copyright reasons, so watch now while you still have a chance.

Do you think that major chords change the mood of this song?
