How do I recognize if a song is in major or in minor?

    You don't say how you're trying to recognize it--by ear or otherwise--so I'll just give a very general answer. You have to find the tonal center--the chord that the song keeps coming back to and "rests" on. Frequently songs start out on that chord too, and usually they end on it, if there is an ending (as opposed to a fadeout). Then it's a question of whether that chord is major or minor.
