Hear how different REM’s “Losing My Religion” sounds played in a major key

MajorScaled TV found a way to sing a happy tune—even if it was a sad song to begin with.

The group has also turned three other frowning songs upside down: Django Reinhardt's “Minor Swing,” The Doors’ “Riders On The Storm,” and Metallica’s “Nothing Else Matters.”
