Girls Just Want to Have Fun in a minor key

Another fantastic Major to Minor by Chase Holfelder. Song becomes sort of funny and ironic!

    The way it changes the entire feel of the piece reminds me of this other cover I've always liked. It's just kinda amazing how the male vocals create such a weird shift in tone and context.

The line "some guys take a beautiful girl and hide her away" goes from a bubbly complaint about misogyny to an almost domestic abuse level complaint about misogyny. Fascinating how just two changes- major to minor and female to male- makes such a huge difference.
