both 4/4 and start in D major. First one stays there but the second uses some eastern-sounding scales and idk what key you use for that sort of thing.

Sned hlep
need key sig and time sig for this

 and the same for this

I agree that "Water Town" is in D major. You can use 4/4 for the meter, but I feel a somewhat strong pull toward 2/2 meter.
"Water Town" borrows a significant number of chords from D minor (e.g. C major, B flat major--the borrowing is prominent from 0:13-0:17), but the important cadences are still in D major, and long stretches of the theme are in D major.

"Day Travel 2", though...it's in 4/4 time, but this theme is in a hinterland between D major and D minor to me, and you can make strong cases for either. It doesn't help that there are prominent G#'s at 0:05-0:08 (implying D Lydian or "D over-sharp major"), then a flip to the D Phrygian Dominant scale from 0:12-0:16 (I normally use a D minor or even G minor key signature in this case, as the Phrygian Dominant is to harmonic minor as Mixolydian is to major/Ionian).
Sections like 0:25-0:33 and 0:51-0:59 change between so many keys in so short a time that I wouldn't change key signatures at those points.

I think the first one works well in 4/4 or 2/4 or 2/2. And probably is in D-major.

And the second one I quite sure it should be in D-major. Makes most sense with all the sharp tones.

Sounds like E flat major, 4/4, 8th-note swing, and 12-bar blues to me at first. It has a 4-bar intro (it has drum beats at first).

It follows the 12-bar blues less precisely later in the piece. It eventually stops using the 12-bar blues for some time.

The piece doesn't seem to switch keys, although it does use secondary dominants and end with a polluted tonic (something like Ebadd9, so an E flat chord with F on top).

EDIT: Had to correct my tempo/rhythm analysis.

Lol. The part that concerns me is what the piece is going to sound like without the drums, unless I can find a way to incorporate them, thank you,btw!

Wow, this place is dead. Anyways, I'm about halfway done with this replacement sheet and still have no idea what key this is in. It's like it switches every other measure or something.

Eb minor. Which I suppose should be written as D# minor.
