Digitalia: Microsoft Songsmith Corrects Artists' Glaring Oversights
Billy Idol, "White Wedding"... sort of
Rocks Off has no idea what's going on in Songsmith's binary mind, but its results range from bizarre (Oasis' "Wonderwall" as darkwave techno) to hilarious (The Police's "Roxanne" as bouncy Latin salsa) to possible genius ("Creep" by Radiohead as an up-tempo near-reggae tune that sounds like a Vampire Weekend cover).
And then there's the darkness of The Village People's "YMCA," which gets transformed into a gloomy dirge so overblown it wouldn't sound at all out of place running over the closing credits of The Omen. Of course, it's impossible to fully explain the process to you. You'll have to see for yourself.
