DailyDirt: Imagine All The People, Sharing All The World…
from the urls-we-dig-up dept
The Beatles broke up by 1970, but since then, they’ve still managed to release a few new songs, like Free As A Bird and Real Love.. and even the new music video for Words Of Love (released this year). Maybe it’s a bit creepy to hear new songs coming from a band that hasn’t existed in decades, but at least these guys were real people (and not some computer-generated pop stars). Imagine how much more music with the Beatles would be available if mashups of their songs weren’t considered copyright infringement? Beyond the infamous Grey Album, check out some of these creative Beatles mashups.
- Ever wonder what a hundred vinyl record players would sound like if they were playing the Beatles White Album’s side 1 at (almost) the same time? Wonder no more. Check it out before the copyright bot on SoundCloud deletes it…. [url]
- If you don’t have the time to listen to every Beatles song sequentially, how about listening to them all at once (it only takes about 8 minutes)? Note: you can buy this track for the bargain price of $1 per Beatles song ($226) as a John-Cage-esque mashup (8 minutes 22 seconds of silence). [url]
- Paul McCartney can still collaborate with John Lennon with a mashup like Imagine The Band — a combination of Imagine and Band on the Run. Apparently, Lennon can also play with Coldplay and other bands, too. [url]
