The Mournful, Anguished Sound of the Iconic John Denver Song ‘Country Roads’ Remixed in a Minor Key

Mashup maker KamTacos took the very light and bouncy major key of the iconic John Denver song “(Take Me Home) Country Roads” and replaced it with a minor key. This half-step scale adjustment had a truly profound effect upon the song, making it mournful, anguished and even a bit discordant.

Here’s the original happy version of the song performed live in 1995.
