Song by the Beatles; editing, painting, and drawing, by me.

This is an edit of the from Anthology 1. The soft acoustic Karaoke version was made from the OOPS (out of phase sound). Go here to learn more about OOPS and Beatles recordings: http://www.beatletracks.com/btoops.html

Some of the lyrics may be a bit off. John's original recording is hard to make out sometimes, and I put in the words most of the internet agreed on.

The idea of looking at the sky as an ocean above you comes from Peter Gabriel's song "Downside Up" and a story he told about it on his Growing Up Live DVD.

BTW, I've been working on this on and off for 3 years...

PROTIP: "Free as a bird" sounds great backwards

Trippy and hot.

I really did sing along with the karaoke, and i feel somewhat relieved after watching that flash. The paintings were displayed in an awesome way, and i wonder, how many paintings did you make (or use) for this flash?

I think it was about 10. I used different parts of them in different ways to keep the file size down.

Awesome!

MORE MORE MORE! Go with Beatles again maybe? Make it a series!


joliet-jane responds:

Thanks! I have a few more karaoke edits, but I can't think of any art to pair with it yet.

Lovely!

Watercolors work very well with a Beatles song, or perhaps most songs from the 60s. It was a great music video on its own, but the karaoke adds more to it. I found myself playing the 'instrumental' version directly after the one with all the vocals, and singing along.
