What, with all the F#'s and the like?

...Yes? they're chromatic neighboring tones to the G naturals (major thirds).

This, ladies and gentlemen, demonstrates my knowledge of music theory's inner workings. :P Thanks, Olimar (and Dudeman)!

Quick listen I'm getting 5/4 but it should be pretty easy to figure out once you start writing it down.

edit: idk different parts are counting differently but yeah just transcribe it first

Hi, I'm trying to transcribe this and I'm having trouble finding the key and time signature. I think it's in 5/4 and the beginning is C Major, but I'm not sure if the key changes afterwards.

Definitely 5/4; it does start in C Major, and I'd transition to E minor at 0:21.

I'm 99% sure the key is C, and that the time signature is 4/4, but when I try and arrange it, the measures don't make good "phrases" of music, so I'm hoping someone can check my work.

You'd be correct on both counts--I'd notate it as C major in 4/4 time, too. There's a strong swing feel throughout (with the occasional straight 16th notes, especially when the piece quotes the Underground theme). You might be notating the beat as too short, based on your words about phrase lengths--I'd notate the intro as 2 bars long. The phrases seem to have fairly clean lengths to me (often 4 bars long). Phrases sometimes do start with pickup notes, though.
