Does anybody find it disconcerting (no pun intended) when they hear a live version of a song that is not in the same key as the recorded version they know and love?

I'm getting that right now with Phil Collins, of all people.

oh yeah =]

xmas carols are the worst with me because i only like them in a particular key. "cantique de noel"/"o holy night" is an example of this ... and interestingly enough, the key i like is not the original one; originally it's e-flat, good ol' c is my favourite.

This has always been a major annoiance for me. In fact, I first hated the "Sound of Music" soundtrack because in grae school I was tought to sing the "Dough a Dear" song in the key of C but in the movie it was in B Flat! LOL
