Thank you so much Joel! One of my music students wanted examples of songs in major keys that were actually sad and depressing, and minor songs that were actually happy, and this and another one of your videos work perfectly. You're the best!

OK. So I was misled by the sampling of the song "Every Breath You Take" by (I think) Jay Z or Kanye West (I'm not sure) coz in that sample the lyrics are "I'll be missing you" instead of "I'll be watching you"

I am actually shocked about "the summer of 69" because I misheard it's main lyric as "that was my first real sex dream" and though for a long time it was about when he discovered masturbation "I played until my fingers bled" and was so embarrassed that i'd been singing that my whole life. feeling a weird form of vindication right now.

In the verse of Pumped Up Kicks it kinda sounds like a school intercom to me. I really like the production of the song.

Knew the police song. it is universally known as the stalkers anthem. Hansen, Gaga, Blunt, Foster the people singing through a school PA, Green Day, Van Halen, and Springsteen. Always thought Hotel California was about being in a mental hospital. Brian Adams summer of 69? Just Wow.

i know you said thought experiments, but i misheared "thot experiments" which was ironically fitting for what poker face is about.

The police song I always hear that it was about the government being Big brother and wanting to control the general public and even himself said something similar in an interview.

Well that "Total Eclipse" is now a song in the musical "Tanz der Vampire" (Dance of the Vampires), so in the end it actually ended up being a kind of a vampire love song in that one ^^' Definitely no way to mistake it in that one :D

FUN FACT: Coldplay’s song “Viva La Vida” is an interpretation of king louis’s last words before his death. The song is written through King Louis point of view, as he apologizes to his people, accepting his fate. It demands sympathy for the overthrown king. In the English language, "Viva la vida" literally means "Long live life" or "Live the life." It is about life, death, war, and change.
