Men Without Hats ‘Safety Dance’

Posted: September 5th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Funny, Music | Tags: , , | No Comments »

Because it’s Sunday and this is ace. A Canadian band, chart with a number 3 hit, and shoot a medieval style video in Bath. Props.

This is why teaching music and making it part of growing up is so important.

Amazingly uplifting and some of the kids are really going for it!!

Stick in your URL. Codeorgan analyses the <body> content. Does some clever stuff. Then plays back a musical interpretation of your content.

Give it a go: http://www.codeorgan.com/

My song sounded a bit weird. Bad content I reckon.

Songsmith enter the YouTube Piss-Take Arena

Posted: February 2nd, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: Funny, Web | Tags: , , , , | 3 Comments »

Ok, if you’ve not read this post have a look through it. But what’s happening has to be seen to be believed.

A few intrepid YouTubers are stripping the vocal tracks out of well known songs and feeding them into Songsmith.

The resulting music is bad, but in a purposeful, ironic way. Adding another jarring layer, they then sync these musical amalgamations with the original song’s music video.

The Police “Roxane”


Radiohead “Creep”


Survivor “Eye of the Tiger”


Billy Idol “White Wedding”


I can’t embed this video because of copyright content claim by Universal Music Group but check out Nirvana – In Bloom (Microsoft Songsmith Remix). It’s really something else altogether.

The hits just keep coming!

I still love YouTube Shreds though…

What do you think? Any more good ones?

This dude can’t sing to save his life, but it’s a massively impressive piece of work. Quincy Jones would buy him a pint i reckon.


More cowbell!
