There's a new cover band in town: The Songsmiths

My friend Dave posted a video of The Police's Roxanne as reinterpreted by Microsoft's Songsmith.  From there, it was a tour through a bevy of other hit songs and their YouTube videos as re-"imagined" by this piece of software.

I really love Songsmith.  Despite (and probably a bit because of) the horribly great ad.  None of these remakes hold a candle to the originals, naturally, but it's fun to listen and watch.

Here's a few of the reinterpretations...
