What are some (non-classical) examples of key changes? A good example is 'wrong way' by Sublime. I really don't know what else to add.

  • Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen should have quite a few of them. But really, key changes in pop music are more common than you think. I cannot even begin to give an exhaustive list. You could make the question a bit more specific by saying a word about what music you like or want to consider for this question's purposes. – Remy Jan 14 '18 at 7:05
  • Guns N' Roses "Walk this Way" and "Love in an Elevator" have the chorus/main riff and verse in different keys, IIRC. Paul Simon's "Some folks' lives roll easy" Is a nice one with a few key changes. – topo morto Jan 14 '18 at 9:34
  • Pretty much every arrangement done for Pop Idol et al goes up a tone at the end :/ – Tetsujin Jan 14 '18 at 9:50
  • @Tetsujin I assumed we meant examples other than the Truck Drivers', but I could be wrong! – topo morto Jan 14 '18 at 10:26
  • a key change is called a modulation – Neil Meyer Jan 14 '18 at 13:07
