Just found that Pollack agrees with you, so we'll stick with John then.

Some great re-mixes posted already, very entertaining. Made it even more difficult to come up with something worthwhile. In the end, decided to do something original (or so I hoped), that is, NOT use the YKMN (LUTN) instrumental at all......

Found some suitable replacements, and tried to create a pub/nightclub ambiance.

Try it, at:

Wow, very very different, I like it! A few timing problems, but the feel of this is so out there, I couldn't help but smile throughout! Jazz is also not necessarily my bag, but this certainly was a lot of fun, and just a little bit out there (which is good to me!)

Yes it was edgy, odd but I think followed the original with the same tempo and humor. I slightly regret not picking a more song oriented selection, like McCartney's composition "Junk" the challenge there would be to combine his solo attempt with the run through "Beatle" attempt or even mashing it with the mythology version of "Hot As Sun" that I have heard is out their but never heard the "Beatle" version before. Perhaps just perhaps this was a "Beatle" attempt at free form jazz, as they certainly approached a wide variety of musical landscapes while recording the "White Album" and this was compose just around that time, but canned and buffed much later.

Appears to me that Jazz is not the most favourite style among the Beatles Remixers....You don't know what you're missing !

So, to please all, made a Soul Version. I now realise that I didn't check if anyone here liked soul, but here it is anyway:

Run From My Name-
Had me impressed straightaway.Amazingly successful.I got'ta re-think this challenge.I didn't think it could be done.

Slaggers-
Liked this too.Smooth & appealing,tho somewhat stark.
Nice touch of klf.The peggy sue I liked too.Overall,it gives the feel of a stage presentation.

Yeah you know my name-
All but the pitching worked for me.
I wouldn't have thought this could work,but it does.

You don't know my name-I thought this worked well.Very good for the tempo changes.Not an easy track to work with.My preconceptions stood in the way,but you managed to vault them.

Look up my name-
Does a good job.Really hard for you at this point to please me,as I'm tired of the track.
Got'ta praise you for the art,too.

I had a struggle with this track.I percieve it as a novelty track & was hindered by that.
So I never tried to make it more appealing.I went in the other direction.
I loaded it into virtual dj,made some pre-set loops of devo's 'mechanical man',
& looped my way thru.
Then I dropped the resulting track into mac ableton & levelled,eq-ed & compressed it into this madness.-

This is using the version from 'past masters'.

The Macca's vocals worked best here with the soul sax backdrop, but the other vocals clipped off the feeling, perhaps slow those down and space them out to linger a bit longer.

Yes, you did make a novely rcord from it. Even reminds of the records that George Martin made, before he became famous. Also very rythmic, electronic sounds (very novel in those days.....), over a rather average melody (GM is no Lennon-McCartney)......

For my choice the best this year has been MP3J's "Closer #9" in the Rev9 challenge, just keep playing that cut over and over and hoping for a 12" inch mix :wink:

There can't be an extended Closer#9 because i rarely save project files. Sorry.
With the number of tracks i do, my pc('s) would soon be swamped with them!
I use Audition, and the way it saves projects means you have to save every little snippet you use...as well as any alterations to your main song(s), so most of the time it's not practical.

Make your own edit of it! I'm sure there's scope for that.

Ahhhhh ..... s%#t! Perhaps if you every want to think of creating an "sound" archive, does Audition let you burn the project as a whole within it's own folder for future use? to then transfer and load from a outside disc media? I've done so many Photoshop projects that way, saving all the snippets of images from start to finish then archive it onto disc and trash the files sitting on my hard drive. Then the mighty back-up is born :D

I think if you save to a folder within your pc....and then copy to recordable media....it won't work, because it tries to find the sources from it's original saved location. I suppose saving to an external hard-drive would work....but i have trouble managing the 4 i already have! lol
Sony Acid is great for saving projects....you can even zip a project and pass it on to another user elswhere....i remember doing that with Tilly from GYBO a couple of years ago. But it's rare that i use that these days, i'm too set in my ways....even Audition 3 is not preferable.

Erm....is this worth finishing...or rather, re-doing?...i had to close the prog without saving!.....and this was just a preliminary trial mixdown.

Ummmm... I think your right about the "save location" theory although if you were to create a folder and then add all the samples that you have worked with for said project and then save the Audition project file in that same folder and place in the same location such as desktop or a Audition program manager then it should recognized the contents, unless that transfer from a external source is "date stamped" when re-loaded to your computer and then Audition program will only work from the "date stamped" folder when it originally was constructed. I've done this with Illustrator projects before, due to projects needing to pulled the correct fonts when a past project has been re-introduced on to my desktop, sometimes I have already dump the fonts used for said project and then the artwork comes up missing a lot, could this been a similar theory/problem? The "Eleanor Closer" cut is a wonderful idea, depending if you have this, could you used just the strings from the instrumental version found on "Anthology" as the "traditional classical" samples were used in the original Rev 9. The Macca vocals could also be slowed a bit to create a deeper tone. The line you used "lives in a dream" makes a great choice to repeat ! The preliminary trial mixdown was uniquely intruiging 8)

Ok, thanks, maybe i'll try doing it again, although not sure about a deeper tone......i wasn't sure about the pitching when i first did it...i tried a lower tone and it didn't sound right, it sounded better natural.

The other problem with saving Audition projects is that i very very rarely have one tune going ......there's sometimes 6 or 7 or more all in the same session, and it's just a pain to click "save, save save" on all the little bits and pieces!!......maybe 100 parts for some tunes!

Ahhhh... Multiple projects can be very difficult to keep track of with trying to utilize a sense of organization such as this. In regards to "Eleanor Closer"I meant to say that Macca's voice seem a little too bright for the mix. :)

I know what you mean,MP3J about saving files.
I make a point of saving all the bits until I'm certain it won't need tweaking.
I have 100's of bits saved currently
& I still can't find the fleetwood mac track I was working on.

Egad. Missed this action back in the day and the links are all dead.
My favourite Beatles track bar none (and both John and Paul have also said so at various points) and my first ever Beatles 'remix' circa 2003 when I was sick of there not being enough of that delicious intro on the track proper. I just tripled it, I think and then brought the track back to it later as well...
Can't find it and it may not be good enough to post when I do but interested in any and all experiments with 'You Know My Name' so if anybody's elsewhere these days, please post links!
