Why Buy a Whole Song When You Can Have Little Bits of One?
Radiohead, the same band that stuck it to the man by letting you download its last album on a pay-as-you-wish basis, will SELL you wee-bitty-bits of its song Nude so you can make your own remix on Garageband. Hrm. Okay.
The Nude stems (bass, voice, guitar, strings/fx and drums) are available on iTunes. You can upload a remix and get widgets to encourage people to vote for yours from your website or profile. Oh, and here's the Facebook app.
The pay-to-play remix game might have been inspired by Amp Live, whose unauthorized mixes of songs from Radiohead's In Rainbows were so cool that the band dropped its cease & desist. You can download Amp Live's remix album for free right here. In some ways it's better than the original.
