F major? I do not think so – sounds D minor, as Nigel said, is the saddest key of all.
Why? Because the note which makes a D major a D minor is the dropped semi-tone F# to F. The key of F slows down to 82 beats per minute, where the groupings of the most miserable songs are found. F# slows down to 88 beats per minute, where groupings of recovery songs are found.
That’s weird, deep – and true. So chew in that a bit or just leave the table. It is that precise – the timing thing.
