Minor

A type of key, chord or scale. Minor keys or scales are generally thought of as sadder than major keys, although the mood of a song also depends on many other elements, such as lyrics, rhythm and singing style. Examples of songs in a minor key include 'Billie Jean' by Michael Jackson and 'Money, Money, Money' by Abba.
