Well I couldn't do all that and then miss out the chorus.

See y'all soon.

EDIT: It's just come to my attention from a non-British friend that it is not a worldwide thing to yell 'KEY CHANGE!' before the key change in a song? That was just a given to me. Or maybe it's just a Northern England thing for all I know. Ah well, we've all learned something.

EDIT EDIT: Or maybe I'm just more a music person than I thought.

EDIT EDIT EDIT: For those wondering. Y'know in a song, nearing the end, generally after it's done the verse chorus verse chorus bridge, then it'll go back into the chorus except it's a bit higher than before? So, in a different key? And it feels all amped up and awesome? That's a key change.

Despite the "cultural barrier" I totally got it.

But then again my parents are musicians.

the fucks a key change

Where I am, when the music changes, we don't really do anything. Unless the particular change coming up is particularly rockin', in which case we stop, pause, and begin the head bobbing.

Is Atticus going to be getting his own version of Nuptup?

...Yelling "Key change!" every time a song changes key seems like something you'd do to help out people who are a bit less musically inclined.

I mean, it works here because this is a silent medium and otherwise we wouldn't have known it had happened. Plus George just seems so amped for it, which is always great.

I guess you have to be a music person to get it. When you're opponent gets out the montage music, you know your ass is done.

"Key change" made sense to me. Didn't realize it wasn't general knowledge... I guess I have been doing music for a long time.
April 15th, 2016, 10:48 pm
So. Uhhh... Are we supposed to mentally replace "Viridian City" with "Vermillion City" while humming "[url=]On the Road to Viridian City[/url]" internally? (Because you bolded "Vermillion", so it seems as if that was an intentional choice.)

Rip weak raticate. Awaiting venus to evolve in middle of fight with raichu.

I, too, don't recall ever hearing anyone yell "key change!" right before the key changes in a song. Of course, now that I've first heard of the phenomenon I'm guaranteed to hear someone yell "key change!" in the next few weeks.

First time I heard "key change" was in a Brentalfloss video. I believe it was in Final Fantasy with Lyrics, and I believe the exact line was "key change mofo."

@KiraTsukasa: It's actually from Super Mario Land With Lyrics which he did with DemonTomatoDave, who, conveniently, is also British. So it seems to be a British thing (with the "mofo" tossed in to sound more American in the song)

coming from East Anglia I have never heard someone yell Key Change, but I did understand what was going on
April 16th, 2016, 7:47 am
For a moment I thought it was George's way of yelling "hit it!" to start music without sounding like she was demanding animal abuse from Atty.

I love Venus. Venus smiles in the face of EVERYTHING. :D

If it makes you feel better, I figured out pretty quickly why George was yelling Key Change. XD The concept is pretty common and you set up the premise well with George singing battle music this whole time. (Plus I remember this tune very well from childhood. :D)

Oddish never struck me as an particularly feminine Pokemon as it is literally a plant bulb with a derp face.

Don't worry Holy, this Americaner knows the deal. But mostly because I've spent 8 years playing the trombone in band and another 6 singing in choruses.

I got it after a moment, H0ly, but I'm going to have to suggest that it's a northern English thing, because I'm from Hampshire and have never heard anybody say "key change" in my life...
April 16th, 2016, 5:54 pm
that is one bad ass oddish!!
April 16th, 2016, 7:45 pm
Key Change, Mo'Fo?

What he doesn't realize is that Venus is in the top percentage of Oddishes.

H0ly, I hope you subvert expectations and make this Oddish into a beautiful Bellossom just because you had friggin' Feraligatr as one of Gabe's Pokemon and it'd be a shame to not utilize that creative liberty to give Atty a Johtonese Pokemon as well. XD

I also don't hear people yell "key change" during a song, but in this case it really works for George. I think this page is really funny.

Key Change, Mofo I used to watch Brental Floss's "With Lyrics" series (before I realized that it completely destroyed my ability to play the games he was taking songs from without hearing the lyrics), so the moment I saw George say that, I mentally added "mofo" to the end.
