From Spiked Humour:

Fantastic example of how pop musicians can be lazy cunts. I was listening to the radio when I heard alicia keys' new song which I thought sounded like the Black eyed peas. I played around with the pitch and tempo of both songs and after settling on a change of less than 1%, I synchronized the songs and to my surprise, not only did both songs have the same chord structure, they also had a very similar beat and the choruses, verses and interludes seemed to play at the same point in each song. These two songs have not been edited.

You will need both speakers to hear it properly.

Isn't that technically editing them?

Anywho...I reckon this is probably pretty common in the music industry, if you listen to Britney's One More Time and Oops, they have the same layout and sounds. You can play them over each other like that and it works.

You also get lots of song remixes online that take music from one song and apply the lyrics from another song, so those two songs must have a pretty close lay-out to fit properly.

My b/f thinks it's a TOTAL rip-off though.

What do you think?

Not really editing, I think... it's like speeding up and slowing down, but if it was written in musical notation, they'd pretty much line up.
