Hello all you talented Ladies and Gentlemen, MP3J has suggested to me that I may be the one to pick SOTM for November, in e-mailing him a list and he replying saying that none has been done here before, although it was a list that was hard to select from, I just couldn't resist selecting The Beatles most novelty cut! So “Welcome to Slaggers” and have a spin on the surreal dance floor with all the flavors that may be mashed with this wild and crazy loop de loop. The tempos that run through this song should make for a clever "twist and shout" :wink:

My, my, what ringtone makers won't think up next :lol: Just think of a jazzy film noir soundtrack from the fifties with a rented stripper and a shoe phone with a little apple money thrown up on the stage .... my apologies to all who may have wanted a more meatier song to sink there ears into :wink:

P.S. For further musical background inspirations check out the apple album from Modern Jazz Quartet entitled "Space"

Perhaps your ringtone is a fitting tribute and remix to this whimsical track, it mirrors the humor and repetition of the original and at only 00:38 seconds! It certainly put a smile on my face such as the original has always done. :D

Good fused! The trodden "You Know My Name" beat worked very well with the soulful "Run" Lennon vocals! The twanging guitar breaks could perhaps use the "stogy breathy old soldier British" vocals which are at the end of "You Know My name" track or the slapping hand claps as a accompaniment, just a thought, although what a perfect mash to this whimsical cut :D

I did try that actually, but didn't think the results that great. I had a ten minute version with all the parts too, and threw it out, just keeping this part. sounded better without the YKMN lyrics.

Yeah i quite like that Terminus, one or two clashes here and there, but it's pleasing.
Using the xmas 68 clip was a nice idea...maybe timing the footsteps to the YKMN intro would tidy it up a bit....on first listen i thought there might be another beat coming in!

My own first effort is causing many headaches!
I hope to have it done sooner rather than later.

Well then taking a ten minute version and doing this type of edit job was indeed superb! I just though that the twang needed a little "beatleesque" harmony manufactured by those vocal mumbles. :)

Hey that's a idea, perhaps have the footsteps timed to answer a ringing telephone to the opening YKMN beat at the other end of the line :)

P.S. MP3J ... Looking forward to hearing your selection. :D

This started off very simply, but key issues and the fact that i made it on my mum's pc not my own, means that it took far longer to get here than anticipated. It's still not 100% but i can't work on it any more, so it is what it is!

I heard the song today .. oh boy! There's magic in them their golden fingers no matter what instrument you have construction the track on! A menagerie of golden oldies and current hits played at Slaggers ... too true to the original intent, throughly enjoyable 8)

P.S. Fab cover art, it remains me of all those carefree Euro club hopping nights of my yesterdays :D

Glad you liked it...you wouldn't believe the amount of times i listened to that before getting it sounding close. Same goes for another track i'm on too, i'll bet i've heard both tracks 500 times! Time to move on now, both are sounding ok.

The creative process takes time to harness what gels into a intriguing trip down memory lane, this cut seems to be a ultimate challenge to sync into parody and you've did just that. Just think how many times George Martin had to listen to it, before it was release to the public at large :wink:

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.

Nice entry BDJ, i'm not a fan of jazz so i can't get enthusiastic about it too much. I thought the Hard Days Night section was promiising, maybe worth using that alone.
I used a YKMN pella with a Clash backing not too long ago, that tuned out quite nice.

This is so a Martini with a twist! The ambiance of playing YKMN (LUTN) in a "live" jazz club setting in my opinion is a very earnest effort, I love the lurid sounding echoed vocals of the "gentlemen" in the first row wanting to see a little flesh and the start could very well have a video attached to it with the strip club scene from MMT :D The "Live" mike with Sean Connery reciting "In My Life" was what made this a fun filled cut, I'm with MP3J in also saying that the use of AHDN was positioned well indeed, one suggestion would be a few sluggish hand claps to be briefly sprinkle at the beginning, ya know, to get those ostrich feathers flying and a slight thrust of microphone feedback ending the cut with Lennon clearing his throat. All in all you had me snapping my fingers to this "jazzy" version 8) 8) 8) 8) Thank you for sharing :D

I much prefer a track done quickly and easily like this one as opposed to my other one this month.
Ingredients...
You Know My Name ... 1 loop sample, two copies of which have effects, and a little of the voices.
Usher ... "Yeah" acapella.
S Express ... samples
and 3 drum samples.

Allright, agree that the AHDN section turned out OK. The whole track is 'a bit of a laugh', as George would have put it. Perhaps I can turn you on to jazz one day......

I like certain types of jazz, and some "jazzy" influences, but the genre as a whole doesn't do much for me.
It's probably too musicianly, or studied for me.
I'd much rather hear a 2 minute loud guitar song, than a 10minute jazz tune with 14 trumpet solos, a bass line that's impossible to follow, and a guitarist who seems to be playing another song altogether! LOL
...It's ok if you like jazz..each to their own, and all that. I'll side with Lennon in disliking it....mostly, like i said before, there are some jazz things that i love, eg a cover of Norwegian Wood by the London Jazz Four which i adore!

Thanks for the great review, you certainly did some close listening ! :D

Funny you mention Lennon clearing his throat; to me, it is not quite clear who sings what on this track. the first verse (chant) sounds like John and Paul in unison. But then the 'good evening....' section? Ringo is ,mentioned, but is it really him, or Paul ? The high pitch (here in the AHDN section) sounds like John, sure, but who clears his throat ? Sounds more like Paul to me. Mysteries, can't find useful info in Lewisohn, except that he states somewhere that the vocals were done by John and Paul 2 years after the rythm track (which sort of excludes Ringo's vocals)....

Ummmm. .... the stuffy salty British mumbles does sound like John, just listen to his vocals in the background of "Yellow Submarine" and other whimsical Beatle cuts he sure had a way with mocking voices :D
