HEY YA! (japrufrock) wrote,

Inspired by This Bird Has Flown: 40th Anniversary Tribute to Rubber Soul, Mickey, Abe and I decided to draw up our own rules. A remake of Rubber Soul, track by track, each recorded by a different, still-active artist. One of the songs needed to be a joke and one of the songs needed to be a collaboration by artists who have previously worked together. We each came up with individual lists, presented them to each other and then voted on which imaginary track was the best. In the event that we couldn't decide, it would be taken to the LiveJournal community.

Without any further ado, here is our dream Rubber Soul remake tracklist:

1. M.I.A. - "Drive My Car"
2. Jandek - "Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)"
3. eels - "You Won't See Me"
4. Beck - "Nowhere Man"
5. Iggy Pop & The Stooges - "Think For Yourself"
6. Belle & Sebastian - "The Word"
7. The Strokes - "Michelle"
8. Prince - "What Goes On"
9. Andrew W.K. - "Girl"
10. Tegan & Sara - "I'm Looking Through You"
12. The dB's - "Wait"
13. British Sea Power - "If I Needed Someone"

As you can see, the verdict is still out on "In My Life" and "Run For Your Life". This is where we need your votes.

·"In My Life" to be recorded by either Daniel Johnston, The Magnetic Fields, or Jingle Cats.

·"Run For Your Life" to be recorded by either The Star Spangles, Morrissey, or Frank Black with Eric Drew Feldman.

YOUR IMPUT IS NECESSARY! Please vote for who you would most like to record each of these two tracks.
