I'm searching on youtube for easy popsongs (with easy chord progressions) played in different keys. Not just major to minor or vice versa

eg smells like teen spirit in F major and smells like teen spirit in D major
or Tom Dooley in G major and Tom Dooley in E major

But i can't find any.

If someone can help me...

I don't know of any, but once you know the chord progression of a song you could fairly easily transpose it to another key. Just take the progression. If you're not aware of this, here's an example. If you have a blues pattern in C, that goes: C | F | C | C | F | F | C | C| G7 | F| C | G7, you can then see and assign the chord numbers, ( I | IV | I | I | IV | IV | I | I | V7 | IV | I | V7 ) then just apply that to any key. So for Eb you'd have, Eb | Ab | Eb | Eb | Ab | Ab | Eb | Eb | Bb7 | Ab | Eb | Bb7. Make sense? If this is what you were aiming for.

Ah, sorry. I didn't grasp why you were looking for that. I don't know of other videos that do that. However, I believe Audacity has a feature that will allow you to change the pitch of an mp3 file.

Yup, I found this if it helps: http://www.jakebinstein.com/blog/changing-a-songs-pitch-in-audacity/
