That's interesting. I wonder if this is something unique to current pop music or can it be traced back into rock, American Songbook or classical types too?

This may be one that does not trace back to Bach.

That was different... Most of those were pop hits from the past 5 years or so. I've heard most of them. I just didn't realize they were hitting that note of the scale so much. Record Producers-->Your song must have Supertonic! smile

What he was calling supertonic playing I would call him playing in the key of C using the Dorian mode. What do you think?

Per that old post we worked on in the past, that could very well be.....

The modes ranked by brightness

I kind of took that video as he converted all the songs to C Major to show that the second note in the key, D, was being hit a lot. But I guess that shift to Dorian would put the D as the tonic 1st note of the key.
