Heroes and Thieves - "Just when I've figured out"

(1/4) > >>

HarmySandwhich:
I adore this song a lot but I can't help but think this that it's slightly off key. I'm no expert in signing but is it just me?

KULPDOGG:
maybe because thats not what she's saying.


she says "and just when I figured it out"

Ah - that would be it.

 :oops:

Thanks Kulp. You've always been there for me  :cry:

tylor2000:
I'm not following your conversation, but I figured it is in C#(or D flat) major who's minor is A#(or B flat,) which is probably considered the saddest or one of the most somber minor keys.  To make it even more pathetic she sings some of it off key.  That is my take on it.  Kind of a lame duck effect....or at least trying to make it sound that way on purpose.

tylor2000:
Not only sad but also very weak.  Lame duck might not have been the right words.  It is a very somber song and the off key parts are always raising in nature.  so it is like it is so sad and weak that the melody can't quite reach the right note.

EDIT: maybe I'm hearing things that are not there.  But if there are any off key parts that might explain it.
