IMO, that is a very good idea: http://www.beatlesbible.com/fo…..ass-onion/

Why don't we do it… for the whole album, or at least the more interesting songs?

 

e.g. Get Back

Starts with the opening chord from A Hard Day's Night, followed by the drum-solo from The End. It's repeated two times, the second time, you can hear the guitars from Get Back, some snippets out of The End and the Strings from A Day In The Life. Then Get Back starts. During a little break at 1:30, the strings can be heard again leading to the next song, Glass Onion.

 

Any suggestions? :D

Don't worry about it! Duplicate threads get started every now and then here, and I don't expect everyone to search through them all before posting.

Great minds think alike, remember… a-hard-days-night-ringo-8

Umm…. Let's see….

"Because." A cappella and slowed down. If I'm not mistaken, bird and insect noises are inserted. At about 2:30, I can hear a low "hum" of sound, which crescendos and presents itself as the orchestra from "A Day In The Life." When the buildup reaches its top, it immediately segues into 

"Get Back." Begins with "A Hard Day's Night" opening chord, followed by Ringo's drum solo played twice. You can hear the "A Day In The Life" strings, along with the last two guitar solos from "The End" (George's and John's last two segments.) and the intro to "Get Back." Once the strings (once again) reach the top, Paul begins to sing. During John's guitar solo, you can hear more orchestra. The "Sweet Loretta Martin" verse is skipped, and the orchestra is keeping time with the song, so by the last chorus, the orchestra reaches the top yet again, and 

"Glass Onion" starts, not from the beginning, but from the "Oh, yeah" parts. Even more orchestra at the bottom of the sound. After three "Oh, yeah"s, you hear "Hello, hello" from "Hello Goodbye" and horns from… I'm not sure. "Nothing is real."  More "Oh, yeah." Then it goes into "Fixing A Hole in the ocean," and you can hear the trumpet from "Penny Lane." Then it goes into the "wah wah waaah" (that's what I call it) from the end and transitions into

"Eleanor Rigby." Strings from the verse where Eleanor Rigby dies are used to introduce it, along with "aahs." After that, it goes into one "Ah, look at all the lonely people." Then, the song starts from the first verse and remains unchanged until the end. More "aahs" and the fingerstyle from "Julia." Noises from "Revolution 9" lead into 

"I Am The Walrus," which remains unchanged until the end, when you can hear staticky noise. Once the song has faded out, you can tell the staticky noise is crowd noise. "Here they are: the Beatles!" Immediately, it transitions into 

"I Want To Hold Your Hand." It's shortened. It plays the first verse, then the chorus, then the last verse. Crowd noise is played throughout. Once it's over, 

"Drive My Car/What You're Doing/The Word" starts. First verse, chorus, "beep beep m'beep beep yeah!" George's guitar solo is replaced by Paul's from "Taxman." At 0:43, you can hear "aah" from I don't know what. Once the solo is over, "What You're Doing" begins from the first verse. After two verses ("Look what you're doing to me" and "You've got me running"), you hear two measures of the drums from the beginning, followed by "It's so fine, it's sunshine, it's the word– love." The fade-out plays. Once it's faded out,

"Gnik Nus" begins. (Doesn't make sense? Read it backwards.) Sitar drone throughout. I think they took each phrase and played it backwards separately, because the "su-u-u-un king" (or gnik nu-u-u-s) comes AFTER the "sun king" (or gnik nus) part, not BEFORE, like it would go if you really took the vocal track and played it backwards. At the end, strings, which segue into

"Something." It begins with George's vocal. After that, it remains unchanged until the end. Organ from "Blue Jay Way" begins at 2:54, and slowed-down vocals from "Nowhere Man" begin at 3:01. They end at the first verse, and you can hear carnival-ish noises until the end, which begin

"Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite!/I Want You (She's So Heavy)/Helter Skelter," which begins with the drum roll. It remains relatively unchanged (except for a horse sound effect at "And of course Henry the Horse dances the waltz.") until the end, when at 1:47, the end of "I Want You (She's So Heavy) begins. The end of "Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite!" is mashed up with the outro of "IWY(SsH)." During the outro, you can hear some lines from "Helter Skelter" floating in and out of the mix. At 3:16, it abruptly ends. Whooshing noise effects until

"Help!" begins. It's completely unchanged.

"Blackbird/Yesterday." It begins with the end of "Blackbird," which, through some magic recording studio process, has been changed to the same key as "Yesterday." At 0:27, "Yesterday" begins, which is unchanged after that. 

"Strawberry Fields Forever." It's from "Anthology," I think. (I don't have "Anthology," but everyone I ask says it's from "Anthology.") Whatever it is, I think it's the version George Martin slowed down for the "Strawberry Fields" on MMT. It begins with the "No-one, I think, is in my tree" verse. At 1:15, bits from the MMT version, like the percussion track, start being added. It begins to sound more and more like the MMT version, but at 2:41, the real fun begins. It kicks of with the band interlude (is it a sound effect?) from "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band," followed by the piano from "In My Life" at 2:48. At 2:56, the trumpet from "Penny Lane" joins the party. The harpsichord from "Piggies" comes in at 3:07, followed by the "hey-la"s from the end of "Hello Goodbye." Did I mention that everything is in the same key?  At 3:59, everything but the "hey-la"s and the drum track from "Strawberry Fields Forever" drops out. At 4:21, the drum track is the only thing left, and it slows down until it's ground to a halt. A sitar drone and the monkey noises from "TNK" begin

"Within You Without You/Tomorrow Never Knows." First two lines of "TNK" isolated and slowed down. Then, the rhythm track kicks in, superimposed over "WYWY." At 0:59, the "TNK" rhythm track drops out, to come back in at 1:31, drop out at 1:42, and come back in at 1:49. The verse about the people who gain the world but lose their souls is omitted. At 2:11, the song ends, to be followed by the Endless and Slightly Chaotic Outro/Intro to

"Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds." The "E A E G E A F# A E E D C# A" intro is repeated twice before the vocal begins.(That's if you're starting at 0:00 on this track. It's repeated many times with many changes at the end of the previous track.) The choruses are embellished a bit. After two repetitions of the final chorus, it leads out of "Lucy in the Sky" and into

"Octopus's Garden" with the strings from "Good Night." For the first few lines, Ringo's voice is slowed down, but it picks up at "I'd ask my friends to come and see an octopus's garden with me" and stays at the faster tempo throughout. Sound effects and snippets of spoken lines are added throughout the song. At the end, the beginning of "Sun King" starts playing, but is cut off after the "aah" to make way for

"Lady Madonna." It begins with a drum groove. At 0:13, the "ba ba ba ba"s begin. The piano intro begins at 0:39. At 1:57, the Hammond from "IWY(SsH)" comes in, along with the piano riff from "Hey Bulldog." At 2:11, Eric Clapton's solo from "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" begins to play.  All that drops out at 2:29. The verse  about lying on the bed is omitted. The sax solo, which, according to Paul, was "buried" in the mix of the original (I can hear it just fine.) stands out. After the end, you can hear a last sax flourish. 

"Here Comes The Sun" begins with the bongos from "Within You Without You." Then, the "Sun, sun, sun" vocals are played slowed down, along with "aaahwoooo"s. The song is backed with the bongos and sitar. Part of "The Inner Light" is used to transition into 

"Come Together/Dear Prudence." "Come Together" is unchanged until 3:14, when the end of "Dear Prudence" begins to fade in. By 3:42, "Come Together" has faded out completely. At 3:49, Paul's thing at the end of "Cry Baby Cry" starts and is used as a transition until 4:34, when strings and bass drum are played, slowing down until

"Revolution" begins. It's shortened, omitting the verse about carrying pictures of Chairman Mao. At the end(during the last chord), you can hear the drums from

"Back In The USSR." It's mostly unchanged. 

"While My Guitar Gently Weeps." The "Anthology" version. George Martin composed a string arrangement. There's a verse in it that's not in the The Beatles version. 

"A Day In The Life." Unchanged, except you can hear the beginning and the "sugarplum fairy" count-in. Also, the high-frequency tone and the Sgt. Pepper inner groove are removed. 

"Hey Jude." This is shortened. The part about "the movement you need is on your shoulder" is omitted, and the "Na na na"s are shortened to 1'57". You can hear the orchestra leading into

"Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band(Reprise)." Unchanged, except for at the beginning. 

"All You Need Is Love." Unchanged, except for the fade-out. At 2:50, you can hear the chorus of "Baby, You're a Rich Man." At 2:52, you hear the chorus of "Rain." At 3:02, you can hear "We're Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band…" from "Sgt. Pepper." (The opening track of the album, not the reprise.) At 3:14, the strings from "Good Night" take over, and you can hear dialog for the rest of the song. 

Well, that's it. Remember, I did this based on my ears, so you guys will have to fill in any gaps I left.

No, we've just tried this before and it's easy to lose steam.

Psst, sweetie, that first guitar bit is Paul (from the second round of solos, not the third).
