Examines the cheesy , manipulative use of key changes in "climactic" parts of songs.

Read the snarky comments as you hear the samples too. The lad is british, which makes it even funnier, for some odd reason.

That is a lot of fun--provided you know a bit about music theory. Love the snarky commentary!

Might be a fun one for the most excellent GLONO Links page.

Yeah, the site is rather funny. Gotta love the Brits, they can find ANYTHING to hate, and right off the bat make several clever comments about it.

But I had never really noticed "gear shifts" before now, and thus it was a non-issue. After checking out this site, I keep hearing them and it's starting to bug me. I'm not sure to thank you or hate you for posting the link.

Oh...OFF TOPIC but I'm disappointed. This is my first post with the new layout on the boards. Why wasn't the orange good enough, Mommy?

I explained modulation to my non-musician wife a while back, and now everytime she hears it, she shouts "Modulate!"
Or sometimes, "Skate Backwards!"

BTW - not all negative criticism, there are, rightly, words of praise for Conway's downward spiral in "Love to Lay You Down"

The orange was causing people to go blind.
