Version City #7
Well this is interesting. It's neither an alternative take or cover version, yet still it differs from the original....which actually it is! Confused? Me too. You won't be surprised to hear that technology is not my strong point, but there appears to be a bit of software out there that allows the individual notes within a tune to be digitally manipulated - a sort of DIY remix tool. To demonstrate, an anonymous online presence has taken the all too familiar 'Losing My Religion' by REM and amended many of the minor chords to major and the result is a revelation. Love the band though I do, it's been a very long time since I've felt the need to listen to the song, but I've been playing this 'new' interpretation on and off all day. See what you think.
For the many or for the few? You decide. Part Chimp - You Decide
