Song starts in A. Each set of lyrics moves up half a key, so by the end of the song, you're in D.

Sweet Inspiration

This one has an amazing key change at around the 2:30 mark - stunning in the bridge yet quite subtle in the final rendering of the chorus.

The Jamestown Ferry

Not sure if I love or hate this song. Either way, it's super stuck in my head.
Half step key change half way in.

(There's) Always Something There To Remind Me

In this wonderful 1960s video, Sandy goes for a clothes change as well as a key change at c1:30 as she bridges to the new key.

Note from the editor:
Be sure to check out this amazing rendition as well!

She'd Rather Be With Me

In my journey through songs I might want to play on my baritone uke, I came across this classic/old favourite of mine - She'd Rather Be With Me by the Turtles.  A lovely little key change through the bridge to the final verse and chorus.

Quicksand is the second song on this blog from Honkey Dory with a key change. Dark lyrics about the occult Golden Dawn and it's most famous members.

Side note, it's too bad Changes doesn't have a key change :-/

Blue Skies

Written by Irving Berlin, this is my favorite rendition.
Half step up in the last verse.
