Which came first…?
In the mornings, I typically listen to music while getting ready for school. Last week, while listening to one of my playlists on shuffle, Kelly Clarkson’s song “Since U Been Gone” started playing. My roommate suddenly says, “I forgot this was the original version. I typically associate this song with Pitch Perfect.” Her random comment surprised me. As I thought about what she said, I realized she was right. Within my own life, I am more familiar with the remixed version of certain content than the original version.
Since U Been Gone (Pitch Perfect rendition):
Her comment inspired my focus of Remixes for this week:
The Parent Trap – When this movie is mentioned, I first think of the 1998 Lindsay Lohan iteration (left) rather than the 1961 version (right). In fact, (don’t tell anyone) I’ve never seen the original.
The Disney Castle – If asked to name a castle, the Disney Castle (left) is the only one that comes to mind. In reality, the Disney Castle is simply a remix of the original concept of castles (with Kings and Queens and Damsels in distress) from the Middle Ages (right).
The Wizard of Oz – The 1939 Wizard of Oz movie (left) is one of the most well known classics. However, there were at least ten adaptations (right) of the original book before the 1939 version was produced.
Honestly, I am a little lost on my project. I need to start by narrowing down my focus, but I am having trouble choosing a topic…
I am hoping to have a better idea of how to start planning after class tomorrow. So please stay tuned!
