To paraphrase Cole Porter: there's no love song finer, but how strange the change from minor to major... in the video above, 'Recovering My Religion'.

Yes, REM's 1991 hit 'Losing My Religion' has been given a reworking - with all the minor chords being changed to major. And suddenly, not unsurprisingly, it has been transformed into a rather chirpy little ditty.

This isn't the first time that the clever people at Major Scaled have taken a song in a minor key and changed it to major. Take a look (or rather, listen) at their version of The Doors' 'Riders On The Storm' - 'Riders On The Rainbow':

We can't wait to see what they do next! Hopefully 'Everybody Hurts'.
