Hello Hello!!

Baby, Baby, Baby, light my wayyyy. @ 03:48 am

sapphires13:
I'm currently feelin: silly silly
I'm currently hearin: Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, etc.

I:

A. Am obsessed
B. Am easily amused
C. Have too much time on my hands
D. All of the above.

So I decided to use the craptastic programs on my computer to have a little U2 fun. It started with Ultra Violet (Light My Way) and then sort of bloomed from there.

Babeh, babeh, babeh

Indeed.

I decided to start cutting the "baby"s from that song, and putting them together, and then I started thinking of getting "baby"s from other songs.
I ended up with a 44 second long file, half of it is from Ultra Violet (Light My Way), the latter half is from Zoo Station, Love is Blindness, So Cruel, Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses, Miami, Original of the Species, Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me, Big Girls Are Best, and Mercy.

End result:

I'm not happy with it, particularly the ending. It ends a bit abruptly. I was going to add more "baby"s, from other songs, but I got frustrated with trying to seperate them, so I gave up and just left it as is. It's still pretty fun though ;P

The Larry/drumset in particular was disturbing. I had no clue I had that kind of thinking in me.
Honestly, cymbals crashing to the floor?

I did it the most generic way possible. I just converted the files to wavs (using a standard file convertor) and then used Windows Sound Recorder to seperate the clips and put them together. Then I used the file convertor to make it an mp3.

Hahahaha... I really want someone to take this idea and run with it, I bet it could be even more brilliant if it was polished up a bit more!  I wonder if there are any other words that Bono uses *all* the time...

I'm already making plans to make a better one using the word "love". I could probably make it about 15 minutes long ;P

ok so I had posted before that I had done the same thing. I host a radio show, and it's pretty U2-centric, and I always have a segment of my own like "Fun with Real Audio"...so just wanted to share mine with you! You have 2 or 3 "baby"s in there that I couldn't put my finger on- it's driving me nuts.
