I can hear the difference, but can a music nerd explain it for a layman like me who doesn't really understand why it's different? I'm looking at the "major and minor" page on Wikipedia but understanding it is beyond my pay grade.
Scales are overrated anyhow.
The minor ("sad") scale uses a subset comprising the notes 1, 3, 4, 6, 8, 9, and 11 from a 12-tone chromatic scale. The major ("happy") scale uses notes 1,3,5,6,8,10, and 12. To go from minor to major one could simply remap note 4 to 5, 9 to 10, and 11 to 12.
To do this in digital audio is a bit more complex. As each instrumental sound is comprised of a basic, lowest frequency, varying harmonic overtones (multiples of the fundamental), and a bit of non-tonal transients noise, one would actually remap a lot of frequencies for each note substitution.
As you might imagine, sometimes overtones of two instrumental sounds can overlap, and voice overtones are how we can instantly identify voices, so I imagine there's a bit of discretion and fine tuning by hand at work here to keep things from sounding too synthetic.

funny, I found the major version of this a lot more "sad" than the original.
Major keys usually make me feel vaguely uncomfortable.

I guess it says something about me that it's a bit surreal to see that jacket on someone who's not Weird Al.

Thriller was a way better album than Bad too.
Off The Wall was the best. Thriller has some great stuff on it but it also has The Girl Is Mine.

Poor Michael Jackson.
That boy had some problems but he sure could sing.
