    Makes it sound like a completely different song. I doubt a lot of you will find this interesting but I found it fascinating and worth a share. Some parts are weird due to the use of autotune to get it work, but still sounds like a different song.

    In minor, to me it sounds a lot like the feel and key of Pastime Paradise by Stevie Wonder.

    Comments winner at YT.

    Someone said, "I want to kill myself to this song." Someone replied with, "Let it be."

    Wow, it does sound like a completely diff song. Thanks for posting, Gromit.

    My fave from that album is "The Long & Winding Road." So beautiful, so sad.

    My ear keeps trying to correct the key, which is really annoying.

    Haha I like it for some reason. It really fucks with your head hearing a song you've heard thousands of times in a different way but with the same voices.

    You are right about the Past Time Paradise similarity. Interesting post, thanks.
    Those accapella youtubes really show the talent of the singers.
    This one with Freddie Mercury is almost flawless :dancin:

    This would be a very cruel trick to play when someone was tripping.

    I like it better. It has more soul and feeling.
    It would be a great companion to While My Guitar Gently Weeps.
