Music Challenge

Inspired by “Happy” and its throwback sound, we were motivated to create a track that could blend a familiar beat of today with a style straight from the past. To start off, we took the bass-line from Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” and then placed the rhythm from Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” on top. By doing this, we were able to take Get Lucky’s recognizable sound and then add to its danceability by placing the strong Billie Jean bass-line. We then took Stevie Wonder’s vocals from “Uptight” and spliced them in the appropriate places in our tune. Most importantly, we altered the keys for the three songs so they were all harmonic and fit with one another. With this mix, Stevie Wonder’s voice and the beats of Get Lucky and Billie Jean create a happy, danceable, and familiar tune of retro meets modern.
