Does anybody know about songs that are played in one key in the studio, and are transposed live?

Who Wants to Live Forever was originally in E minor but in concerts it was played in D minor.

Another One Bites The Dust was speeded up in the studio mixes, but played live as it was supposed to from the beginning


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.
