Here's one very strange version!
It features Wild Honey Pie, Honey Pie, and Revolution #9 by The Beatles,
and This Never Happened Before by Paul McCartney, as well as 19 by Paul Hardcastle, and other samples. (see attachment!)

Well, here we go on the new forum. And a difficult start it is with WHP.

After struggling a bit, I went for a 'pop' version, with backing tracks from roughly the same period. All Beatles, except for the second bit.
There is some connection between WHP and Pattie Boyd, hence the holiday pic.

Image

You may recognise most of the building blocks; the guitar solo is from a 'White Album Jam', one of the few that Yoko Ono did not chatter through....
The outtro is from ""Art of Dying"; so, the track now spans the whole spectrum, from a happy-go-lucky start, to the deep doom of the end. More than WHP deserved, IMHO.

Listen at the usual place:

Hehehe,
i knew Crea's choice would bring up some strange offerings.
I like the way you used the "pella" of Wild Honey Pie, and placed it with Ob-La-Di. It's quite funny.
I hadn't even thought of using a WHP pella...i've been engrosssed in using the riff....i'll post a second entry tomorrow :D :twisted:

Crea! You trickster! I mixed honey pie with why don't we do it in the road last month! Lol!
Well,I'll give it a try.

MP3j-yours i liked.Amazing final feeling to it.Really inventive.

BDJ-Yours is even wilder,but it was engaging nonetheless.Would'a thought there was this much to do with wild honey pie?

Thanks Crea, Dj Useo and MP3F for your kind comments. Indeed, surpising what different things can bde done wih almost nothing......

I look forward to your further contributions, I'm afraid that I've exhausted my creativity with the track I submitted. But who knows, i might beinspired by yurr tracks later on......

hehehe :lol:

MP3J, i very much enjoy your strream-of-consciousness mix, the vox fit well, and the drum loops, '19' and operatic samples are some nice touches. Is that Yma Sumac at the end?

BDJ, loved the 'popification' via Obladi, the give-a-hoot time-stretching, and especially the chord changes at the end.

My only lil gripe about both tracks is that i think they drag on a bit too long (both longer than the original :lol:) and could have done what they do in much less time. WHP is annoying enough to start with, and looping it for more than 3 minutes can be a bit, shall we say, testing. :wink:

Regardless: great, imaginative work with a track generally considered to be the F4's worst. Cheers!

I really don't know, i took some samples from a track/piece that djBC posted at GYBO. It was called "Most Unwanted Music", and featured lots of weird stuff..20mins long.

After already working with this track last month,I found no patience for it again this month.
Nonetheless,I came up with this cut,which I compare to
the most abrasive punk out there
in its unpleasantness.

This version contains bits from
Ringo's "Oh My My"
John's "Cold Turkey"
George's "Dream Scene"
Pauls' "Wild Honey Pie"
& Yoko's "Amsterdam".

Hey MP3J,that PE one plays very nicely.Good work & you kept it relatively near the source sound,yet departed also.Big ups for this 1.

The eminem one also worked nicely,altho I favored the former.

So maybe I'll try it again & see if I can make it more normal?

Thanks ~I.

Chord changes are from "I get Around", the Monkees. Yes, I confess, I kinda like the Monkees. In this track, the drums are just a fraction of a second behind the beat, which gives the track a nice groove. Had to slow it down for this remix, so the gap from the beat grew, but fortunately not too much. might use this loop again, some time......

Your gripe: no argument there. As the emperor said when he first heard Mozart's opera: ""Nice, but too many notes !". At least we are in good company......

Very clean production, great sound. the drums fit well in the Public ennemy track. "Bring the Noise", indeed !

"Wild Psychiatrist" starts deceptively quiet, the the text sort of clashes nicely with the music. I have no idea what it is all about, but same goes for Wild Honey Pie.
Inventive tracks both, who would have heard that in WHP ?

Well, exceptional achievemnet to include four solo (ex-) Beatles in one re-mix ! And Yoko dominates the tracks, as she is expected to do.

All in all, I find this a rather musical track, with even a sense of purpose. Listening to this track, I realised that perhaps Cold Turkey is the closest song to WHP: the descending progression, feeling of agony somehow. The guitar riff sounds good here, I had to 'forget' Cold Turkey since it is placed on a diferent beat here, well found !

I have to say that everyone has come up with some very inventive ways to remix this track. Excellent job folks! I think my favorite so far is BDJ's mashup, but they are all so good.
