Any key can be sad if you know how to use it properly. Minor would be the easiest to do that with, in my opinion.

Where's that from? I hear it all the time and always shake my head at its inaccuracy.

I still don't buy this.

If you have perfect pitch and you listen to a lot of sad music in D minor then I suppose it would work on you.

But it's from a parody movie. So it's really irrelevant anyways. The only time a different key would really matter is if you had perfect pitch, or if we didn't use equal temperament.

It's from a comedy movie. It's not serious. Notice the quotation marks.

"Sad" isn't a sound. It's an emotion.

But anyway...

Evoking emotions is more about phrasing and note choice than key. When you think "sad" you normally don't think about shredding - for example - you think of something slow that dwells on each note a little longer.

Playing a rock solo in Am won't have the same affect as playing a slow blues solo in Am...

Probably it's taken from Christian Schubart's Ideen zu einer Aesthetik der Tonkunst (1806). But hey, the guy was a nut.
