This may sound like an odd question, but there some elections will be held at my high school, and I am a vicepresident candidate and I am in charge of making my own propaganda and some of the candidates' soundtracks... for money. COOL! So I wanted to know which key I should use, could you help me out?

well, if you're going for a sad theme, Dm would be the way to go, because Dm is the saddest key. (Cookie for whoever gets the reference.)

Any major key should work. Try the most basic key you can think of Cmajor. You don't want to make it to complicated. Make it catchy. Sorry i know that wasnt much help.

Well, in fact, it was cuz I never planned to use C, and the advice about making it simple is interesting.

I believe you're referring to the tragic "Lick my Love Pump"

It really doesn't matter what key you play in, as long as it's major.

Use A minor and just slag off all the other candidates
Some people wait a lifetime, some simply accept...

...Some restore the blood flow, some just let it go and bleed...

...Some of us obsess, some move on to something new

It is just that I have noticed that several soundtracks have the same key but i don't know what it is cuz i never pay much attention to propaganda

So your saying that you're gonna be class vice-president...and you can't even make a decision...on a key? You lost my vote.


Keep it in a major tonality. Key doesn't matter at all unless you know what instruments/vocalists you might be including...even then, you can always transpose. I would say what you want to be considering is do you want it traditional, serious, cool, or lighthearted/humorous.?

oh yeah!
To TS: Google "subliminal music" and similar phrases and see if anything comes up that helps influence people. IDK if it'll work.

First of all, you are right, I can't make this decision.

And

I want a lighthearted, humorous song.
