Key Sig Question - Minor or Major?
If the key signature of a song has a single sharp, but Em is the primary chord, do you say it's in the key of G, or in the key of Em?
In this specific case, the chorus progression is Em - C - D - Em, and the verse progression is Am - Em - C - D- Em
It's in E minor, but the writer has left it a little ambiguous tonally to add chromatic interest - E minor is the relative minor to G major and C-D-G would be a fairly typical IV-V-I sequence in that key. That sequence in E minor would routinely be Am-B7-Em.
