At first I thought it was in a minor key, but it sounds more major?

    D minor - **all the way**.

    Chords are:

    A - 0:03 - 0:49 = (Cmaj)||: Dmin---Cmaj-| Bbmaj---Amin-| Gmin----| Gmin---Cmaj-:|| (7 times)

    B - 0:50 - 1:23 = ||Fmaj----| Fmaj----| Amaj----| Amaj----| BbM7----| BbM7----| Gm9----| Gm9----| Fmaj----| Fmaj----| Cmaj----| Cmaj----| BbM7----| BbM7----| Gm9----| Gm9----| Fmaj----| Fmaj----| Cmaj----| Cmaj----||

    - 1:23 - 2:42 = A + B

    - 2:43 - 3:36 = ||: Bb----| Bb----| Gm7----| Gm7----| Fmaj----| Fmaj----| Cmaj----| Cmaj----:|| (4 times)

    - 3:37 - end = ||: Dmin---Cmaj-| Bbmaj---Amin-| Gmin----| Gmin---Cmaj-:|| (2 times) ***Dmin*** final chord...

    Choruses do indeed begin with that F major chord but only as III chord in an all D minor (natural minor, that is) context :-)

    Best,

    Raymond
