Dan's remixes (posted by Patrick May, 8 Sep 2016, 00:28)

Dan, cool stuff! That's an interesting interpretation of my song 'Johnny'. The ending is especially interesting - you seem to have emphasized the sombre emotional tone which was present in the original version of the song.

Your version of Blarg is cool too. It has your distinctive style, but it maintains the character of the original song.

If you want to do more, I encourage it. Combining ideas from two or more songs is a cool idea, it'd be interesting to hear the result.

"Johnny" Remix (posted by Dan Rowe, 25 Aug 2016, 07:04)

Patrick has invited people to feel free to remix his work. It was fun working on an old tune of his. I worked in a few ideas of my own, trying not to alter his original concept too much. Did I go too far, Patrick, or not far enough? If you like the result, I'd love to try it again with a different song; or maybe combine ideas from two or more songs, for fun.
