Thanks MP3J.

Not sure if it all makes more sense played backwards or forwards.....

Perhaps I wanted to show how easy it is to take words out of context, or interpret them for what they are not.

Quite a topic now, with the "I wanted *** with my mother and Paul" hype around Norman's new book. I think I saw or heard the reference to the fantasy around John and his mother years ago, and it still seems a very 'don't we all have that as a part of growing up' kind of thing. I should have wriitten a book about and made a lot of money !


[quote="MP3J"]That's good BDJ,
it would be lots better if the interview clips were used more abstractly though. Use them "out of context"!:lol:
...although i appreciate the depression aspect of their use.

Agreeing with BDJ here.
I thought the U2 track reminded me of Coldplay...could imagine Chris Martin singing that.
About the mash....well it's well made (nice "deadman" link), but i wasn't keen on the song, so that put me off.....my mood is too UP at the moment to handle the dreary nature of the U2 song.

Keep 'em coming, i like this challenge!
I'll post some more later.

Well, i'd done a couple of Rev#9 tunes....this one and another, but i think the other can be done a little better, so for now i'm just posting this one.
It features elements from Revolution, Revolution 1, Revolution #9, Lennon's "Everybody Had A Hard Year" demo, and a couple of drum loops.

Yes very well put, perhaps make a Lennon comment about being depressed about the size of his budgie :wink: or the comfortable zone between two balloons 8) The blues background track was well choosen, although perhaps needs to be slower and darker it sort of outweighs the vocal collage.

Well made track, found it a litle intimidating, probably because the tempo is quite low. Could not detect a storyline, so that's a real no 9!

Seems that one of the tracks used is of low quality, does not register frequencies above 4 kHz, makes the whole mix sound somewhat dull. was that done on purpose ?

The repetition between the samples and what follows is a good beat set in motion here. The classical chorus looping as background singers to Lennon's demo continues to explore just exactly what Rev #9 is all about, a sound collage :D Perhaps a Yoko serenade loop from the duet snippet available on the DVD extras from Lennon Legend may, and I say may, have been a nice added vocal backup as instead :wink:

Allright OV, you do know how to read between the lines, I like that ! Or, as my father says,"a Dirty Mind is a Joy Forever"......

On a more serious note, I don't think Lennon needed to worry about the size of his Budgie. There is a snippet of home movie on the web where he spins around wearing nothing but a bathrobe, which reveals his budgie while he spins. I would say about average (but I'm certainly no expert....).

The 2 balloons qoute evokes various associations with male and female body parts. For me, mostly with the '2 Virgins' vision that J&O projected of themeselves.

Now a challenge: where would you find the Wumberlog ?

Well yes, the sexuality of sizes to sufface "hear" are effident, although in more playfull terms. I'm sure Yoko enjoyed lumbering over the "wumberlog" on a cold winter's day :wink: after all they, as you mentioned did "become naked" for the world to see :D

Nice track, although I find that U2 often sounds like someting I've heard before (such as the Beatles.....).

I think this is inspired by, or aiming at, Depression 9. Am I worng ?



unrelated, as I haven't listened to the other Rev 9 tracks yet. No, I made the association before of Turn Me On Dead Man and Wake Up Dead Man because they both have "Dead Man". Trying to be a little more "subtle" with the rev 9 effects than on the other track.

..fun for a while, but its a bit long. Nicely assembled again though!


I was of the same opinion. [and who am I to talk? :lol: ] Nice bits, seemed a bit too long to me. Trust me, when I have personally made a 50 minute version of Revolution 9 mashup and even an 80 minutes version too, um, once you get past 10 minutes, it is too long.

actually, I thought that was a lot of fun to listen to, I like how you altered up the sound effects and, um, gave the sound effects sound effects! :wink:

A spin on Macca's ballad makes Blackbird even darker! I enjoyed the piano intro weaving in and out of the phrase "all your life" a complement to the faceless BBC engineer voice repeating "number nine, number nine ..... cleaver parody! 8) "India" could have been a little slower and perhaps elements of the song played in reverse :wink:


Actually, I think One Virgin put that very well! Made a dark song even darker! well done!

Oh well, here it is anyway. For some reasons,i hadn't checked this forum for a while, expecting e-mail notificaction if anyone posted a contribution to the SOTM. Doesn't seem to work anymore......

So, I made a re-mash, which was rather OK for me. But, listening to the fabulaous SOTM September remixes posted earlier, it may not age well.......

Still post it, since it has a few nice features: for one, it contains the Full Revolution 9 in under 3 minites, plus a summary of Lennon's main philosophical issues. Plus a great backing track.

As usual, in BDJ's Cellar of Remixes:

well, the title sure threw me. I thought this was going to be a depressing track, kind of like my Wake Up dead Man one, but it wasn't at all! Some of the interview clip things I had trouble hearing on it, but other than that, great!

Everyone had a hard year worked very well on the beat, the Number 9 to the beat was cool, I have a vague recollection of you doing something like that before. The Revolution song lyrics didn't seem to quite fit (not naturally placed or spaced, for lack of a better way of putting it), but that part was short anyways.

Yeah I have had a lot of fun playing this on repeat mode :D
It seems the samples from #9 works best over another instramental 8)

Well, another attempt at Tomorrow Never Knows vs REvolution, trying to space the lyrics out. And adding some Two Virgins to it as well. Maybe a bit too noisy now, but here you go!

Wel, Well, Well .... Oh Well! This was a better approach at being naked, simpler and more in keeping with the sound collage intent. Would have been nice to add the "All Right" in synch with the phrase ""of the begining" at the end .... nice choice of adding Yoko's giggles throughout 8) The spacing of the TNK vocals were also very well done, the beat was kept in tow which was the foundation that worked the best :D
