« Streets... » played with minor chords

I’m taking a creativity class and we’re supposed to try and write songs, given instructions, a little bit like Brian Eno did in the 90’s.

My assignment was :
-Write about a road trip
-Use a well known song, but alter it by switching chords from major to minor or minor to major

I almost went for Desire but in the end I picked Streets.
I find the result super interesting. It completely changes the mood of the song.

I just did 2 verses + 1 chorus.

Thanks. I used the strat at first but it sounded too much like Edge. I went for a Gretsch guitar. Dirtier.

Maybe you just need to create a SoundCloud account ? Not sure.

Yeah - dirtier is a great way of describing it.

Is it free? Do they ask a lot of questions?  I try to NOT put myself or my info out there very much.

You don’t need an account to listen.  Not sure why some people were unable to play it.

Well, I know why. I am using an ancient device for which the browser is an afterthought. A lot doesn't work. A shame.

Wow, reminds me a lot of their cover of Night and Day!
The Edge: “[Eno] would love to see us making albums a bit more like [Zooropa]. Where we go, ‘You know what? We’re not going to second-guess any of this. Let’s just go for it.’”

U2 Fans: We'd all love to see that, Edge.
