I think it’s interesting to look at how the vocal and instrumental composotion changes the emotion of a song. For this assignment find a cover of a song and combine it with the original version of the song to create a new/remixed version of the song. After you’ve finshed remixing your version, listen to it and see what kind of emotion it now makes you feel. To complete the assignment, I chose to take Don’t Forget Me by Harry Nilsson and combined it with Hamilton Leithauser’s (The Walkmen) cover of this song.
