Microsoft Songsmith Does the Classics

Microsoft Songsmith is a software program that writes music for you. Of course, folks won't be bound by silly ideas like what a software program is supposed to do. So they take classic songs, cut away everything but the vocal track and then "sing" the vocals to Songsmith. The software then supplies a new musical take on our favorites, everything from "White Wedding" to "Eye of the Tiger" (below) to "Wonderwall" and "Creep."

Here are a few to whet your whistle, then go check out the full playlist:
