Welcome back to my little corner of The Object’s blog!
This Monday is going to be a little sillier than usual. I’m introducing “Matt Notes”!
Some of you may or may not remember Cliffs Notes. I don’t know if they’re still used very often in school, but the general idea behind them was that they’d give you a condensed version of a book. They’d give you a run-down of the characters, plot, general outline, theme, etc. You could write that book report without ever having read the book. What a time saver!!
I thought it would be fun to use the same idea for a piece of well-known music. Take a popular song, cut it up, rearrange it a little, and cook it down. Matt Notes capture the essence of a popular song, and serve it up to the listener in approximately a minute or less, saving you the trouble of having to hear the entire thing. What a time saver!!
Here’s the Matt Notes version of Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Freebird:
And there you have it! I have a lot of fun making these for some reason. Please keep in mind, if you happen to see one of your favorite songs or musicians, that this is all in good fun. I like some of the songs I’ve done this to. No piece of music is safe.
Is there a song you’d like to hear the condensed, Matt Notes version of? If so, leave a comment or send a message my way. Chances are good I’ll make it. For academic reasons.
