I’ve discovered some on Youtube lately.  These two are my favorites.  The latter is very fitting for the lyrics.  Sounds like Joy Division and early 80s Cure.

I enjoyed those. Goes to show that a good song is still a good song even when it's changed up a bit.

The Police track changed the feel a lot though, so to my ears this is a testament to how small changes can have such great effect on how the song is perceived/expressed.  The original Every Breath is MUCH better than this minor key version [from a musical standpoint, both of these songs are done well to demonstrate the differences].  Nothing can save this REM song.  lol  [I like REM, but this track isn't one of the songs I like]

Rick Beato does a lot of videos demonstrating major and minor scales.  They're good to reference because you can hear the differences as he's explaining them (real content starts at around 1:00).  Music theory doesn't interest me much, it's mostly a framework and I don't necessarily use it unless I'm stuck writing something.  This is only posted because it demonstrates some of what's happening in these videos.
