Now For Something Completely Different

Imagine-a-jump-john-lennon-vs.-van-halen by jackstanleywp

David Lee Roth's vocals from "Jump" overlayed on John Lennon's "Imagine".  At first I thought it was a little bit of a stretch to say they matched up, then the chorus kicked in at the 44 second mark.

I have the same program on my computer to lay down tracks and I tried it with Imagine and Blue Eyes Smiling in the Rain and it matched up perfectly too.

That is extremely cool. And I think it is a 110% improvement over Lennon's original. Especially considering that I am one of the 43 people alive today that this Imagine is terrrriibbblllly overated (said in my best Robert Walonsky voice).

It's not that amazing. Songs have tempo. If they match up, this same effect would happen for a myriad of combinations.

12:28 You're must be among the 43 biggest idiots alive today if you truly think that.

Make that 44 people. My vote is with Mr. Mike Honcho. I don't accept musical philosophy from anyone who thought Yoko Ono a hot happening babe.

3:19 pm... Sure, I don't mind the heat on this one. I think Imagine is a complete beat down. Its got a neat little piano hook. Good and sappy poetry for lyrics. But, O-VER-RATE-ED! Clap, Clap, Clap-Clap-Clap!!! O-VER-RATE-ED! Clap, Clap, Clap-Clap-Clap!!!

That is all.

PS - Amen on that Darryl. She was neither hot nor musically talented.

Imagine is actually a very pleasant song to listen to. If you really hear the lyrics however, you begin to understand how dumb Lenin (Lennon) was and what a pipe dream liberalism is

Gilligan's Island to the tune of Stairway to Heaven is even more awesome.
