It's a known fact if you edit every song ever recorded, you can synch them up to "What You Know". This isn't at all cool.

rap always will and always will be stolen or inadvertantly stolen material.

They steal cars, tv's and money, so I'm not surprised that they steal music too, It's not their fault though, it's all they know. Lord knows if they enjoyed working they'd still be picking cotton.

pretty much all americanmade music, as well as pictures, ideas, names, books, sounds and images are stolen nowadays. Before legislation that almost completely occurred in the last century (most noticably to me around the 1950s as best as my memory serves me), a lot more patents and copyrights were entirely nonrenewable, and after that, songwriters, for example, would lose the individual ownership of the rights to their song and would have to write more to stay recognized, but since all songwriters "suffere

I don't think thehyecircusn quite gets it, in that there is a bassline to "What you Know" that follows the others. Yet this still sounds cool. makes me want to make a mix track :D

apparently what you know about chord progression is nearly nil. "What you know" contained NO chord progression, merely a backbeat. please don't ever compare that crap to the beatles or jimi.

Hello boomaga, it is I... DOtheDateRape... I come to you in great need of your neverending wisdom. I have a good audio for a YTMND, but I want to sync the mouth movements with the audio. I have the several basic pictures with the mouth opening and closing, I just need to know how to match the timings with the audio and the visual. Any suggestions?? Thankyou for your time. Your humble servant: DoTheDateRape.

What's funny is all the people who are commenting about things like "You can speed it up to make it match, but that doesn't mean anything, because it changes the sound" without understanding that it's the relationships between the pitches (as in, the progression of the chords) that's the entire point of the YTMND.
May 21st, 2006

"It's a known fact if you edit every song ever recorded, you can synch them up to "What You Know". This isn't at all cool." OH MY GOD YOU MEAN HE STOLE EVERYTHING??? Every song ever made? Or is it just that you have no idea what you're talking about?
May 21st, 2006

yeah, that's what I've always said about modern/pop music. All the melodies have been done since the early operas or classical compositions, modern music is all just a new spin on the rhythms.

Oleander, you could take a computer, and program it to sequentially play every combination of notes of length x. Of course the difference is going to be the rhythm. Look at Smoke on the Water. Classic song, but pretty distinctive. If a classical composer came up with that combination of notes, they didn't use it in the same way. Deep Purple actually came up with something.

hmmm... although this may not be so obvious to most people, its still pretty reasonable to assume that a lot of popular songs follow similar chord progessions. Frank Zappa wrote that these "pop" tunes were all the same. Now we can see why.

"If anyone didn't notice the "old" tracks were sped up or slowed down to make the pitches match up with the rap song, not impressed" If anyone didn't notice this site is about chord progression and not pitch, they fail at life. This ytmnd owns.

Ok, you critics don't realize this important thing: the point of this wasn't to match up the tempos; it was to demonstrate the high similarity between the chord progressions (not the actual notes, but the relative position of the successive notes to each other on a musical scale e.g. the progression A B D A B is the same as C D F C D). You can transfer a melody up and down the scale all you want, but the relative progressions will be the same no matter what.

tempo don't really matter, idiots. And as for synching the songs to sound the same, that doesnt matter cuz it's still the same CHORD PROGRESSIONS
