lovely dissection of the original 1984 transformers theme

cool video (do check out his other videos if you're interested in music theory). however, at 10:24 he says that E7, in the key of C major, is what's called a secondary dominant or a subdominant. and while it certainly is the former, i don't see how it can be called a subdominant. am i missing something here? if this isn't just a mistake on his part, could someone please explain me this?

i found other comments that pointed this out but anyway, i just noticed he calls it the subdominant 3rd at 9:39. i didn't catch that the 1st time, i wasn't paying much attention. so it's not a mistake on his part, he's clearly saying the III7 chord has the subdominant function in major keys. no idea why. here's a video about this particular chord:

i wonder if it's a tape edit.

"it's too long need to cut the end"  

- "but if i cut the end it'll sound weird.. i'll cut some out of the middle."  and maybe those weird shifts are where the edits happened? idk. 

anyway.. i love the riff/beat in the carwash.

that's right, i hid their names because this is sensible information lol. i couldn't find the comment in question though. 

btw, the progression he breaks down is called the circle progression, or the circle of 5ths progression. i've never heard anyone call it the key circle. and the tune never departs from the key of A minor (aside from the brief excursion into A phrygian at the beginning), so mentioning that E7 is a secondary dominant in the key of C major was unnecessary. i get that he chose to mention that the progression starts with a ii-V-I in C major so that a beginner would better understand how these chord changes work. but doing so only makes things more confusing imo. each chord needs to be analyzed in relation to the home key, so these 3 chords are actually iv-bVII-bIII in A minor. 

in short, he uses weird - and maybe even wrong - terminology at times, and he could have done a better job at explaining how the progression works imo - even to an audience of beginners.

actually, he's not using the term key circle to refer to the circle progression, my mistake. i should have paid more attention. he says "so we go for a ride around the key circle there", then he says "so we go right around the key circle... almost perfectly, because the true key circle would go there instead" while demonstrating what the "true" key circle is, i.e. the chromatic circle of 5ths - while the circle progression uses the circle diatonically, hence why it's also called the diatonic circle of 5ths. still, i've never heard the term key circle before.
