Ledeb said I could do whatever I wanted to this song. Brave! I made stacks of vocal chunks. Very simple. Here is the original

Chop chop!
Yes, that's definitely a remix. Lisa might not recognize it herself. Pretty cool how you've shuffled those vocals.

Shuffle
Thanks Vic,

The presupposition here is that when I listen to songs, I rarely pay attention to the lyrics (no offense to anyone--that's how my brain works). In "stacking" the words, I am somewhat forcing the listener to do the same: ignore the words, hear only the sounds.

As far as shuffling, that's about right: I didn't put too much work into being crafty with the exact start of each text chunk, just a nudge hear and there until it sounded happy.

Thanks again for the comment! --Jim

Mixxy
Very interesting, the way you shuffled the vocals like that. It builds into a trancey dance. It's amazing the variety of mixes coming out of this Orbiting tune. Nice work, pooey.

Thanks!
I kept thinking that I've gotta funk up the bass line, maybe play live, maybe mix it up. But I stayed simple and, yeah, I like it too. Thanks again!

I'm flattered. I'm not a real electro-techno-remixin guy, but somehow this happened. Hey, if I can do it, you can surely do it!

AAAAAAAAH!
Where's my comment? I dropped by here after having a conversation with another macjammer about how cool your mix was, especially, to see how your mix was doing and I don't see the comment I left here last week which is very upsetting, especially considering how much I love this one and how much I've been playing it since you first posted it.

Sigh.

Well, the gist of what I thought I had posted was that it goes without saying that this is an incredibly imaginative way to use the vocals and I guess I'm kind of like you that I only sometimes pay attention to the actual lyrics and only really find out that I haven't been paying attention when I try to sing along to a song I SHOULD know really well but then find out I don't know at all.

Also, I just love the way this swings. You and paddler both gave me a groove that I don't naturally have and I love the entire vibe and flavor here. I've been listening to it a lot. Thank you so much, Jim!

AAAAAH!
Don't fret! You actually left a nice comment in the thread. I was gonna copy and paste it into a comment, but you beat me to it.

I am entirely impressed that you (and others) like it so much. It was a lovely piece of music, and a great challenge, to really get my creative juices going. Also gave me a chance to feel out Logic 8. And yeah, it was a hoot making this neat remix. I felt intimately connected with you after spending an hour listening to nothing but your vox. It's like you were there with me (well, okay, maybe not).

Would love to do it with you again! --Jim

Hits the spot
Cool experimental mix. Love the drum and bass sounds. Playful vocals are nice if not a bit loud and upfront at times. Great laid-back groove.

Thanks, _ndie
Me too, don't get on here much anymore. Hope to get back into the swing of things and record some stuff. I also think back fondly of our experimental stuff. Thanks for the swell comments!

Late to the game...
...I guess, but this is a pretty mellow mix. Sounds like my clock radio gently insisting I stop hitting the snooze button. There is something oddly calming about this song... I, too, listen first to the music of any song before considering the lyrics. If it "makes it" on that level, I'm likely to see if the words tell me anything.
