Groovy Prog Funk Robot Disco Kate Bush anyone? I am going to get a reputation for all these prog boots, I am actually a punk at heart but I love Alan Parson Project’s I Wouldn’t Want To Be Like You – a sort of angry rock disco jam that’s so funky. Check those ride cymbals!
It happens to be in the same key as Running Up That Hill, and I tried it for a laugh, perfect match (well as perfect as anything is, with Kate’s jazzy approach to timing and dissonance)….I wasn’t planning another Running mashup after the last two but it just happened. I was supposed to be sorting out a podcast…
Oh and did no-one ever mention that one of the famous pop songs of all time, Kate Bush comes in half a bar early (or late) on the last chorus? Check it, she’s out of time (OOT) or out of phrase (OOP). I had that issue with my Ghost vs Kate Bush as well!
Running OOP that Hill more like!
This is the shorter version, there’s a 6 minute jazz prog odyssey version that I’ll save you from – I’m sure the last 5 seconds obsessed mashup world will go ‘meh’ at this mashup of dusty old 70’s prog funk and old 80’s pop…not going to sell many records is it? 😛
Or titivate the algorithmic robots. Maybe they’ll spot one of their own in the artificial intelligence Asimov inspired Alan Parsons Project track (the album is called I Robot, he would have HATED that I used a 2001 reference in the artwork, him and Arthur C Clarke were not exactly friends), or maybe people know this song from GTAV…
P.S. Thanks to Ian Fondue and ToTom for their advice/feedback on this track.
