AND BY “REMIX,” BEN WEINMAN MEANS “MAKE A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT SONG”
You’re Ben Weinman, you’re a genius, and for whatever reason, you’re remixing a Bring Me the Horizon song. What the hell are you supposed to do with it?
Change it to the point where’s it’s not at all recognizable, that’s what.
An anonymous reader sent me this video, which plays BMTH’s original “I’ve Read About Girls Like You On the Backs of Toilet Doors” side-by-side with Weinman’s remix, which is really just a completely different song with a few samples taken from the original. As a matter of fact, for most of the “remix,” it sounds like you could be listening to outtakes from some of the Aphex Twinier moments of Ire Works (“Sick on Sunday,” the intro to “Dead as History,” etc.). And that’s a good thing.
