I first did this in March 2004 using the original karaoke mix. That mix is different enough that the changes were rather obvious but I still enjoy that version to this day even with its flaws. I thought it might be fun to try and redo the 'mix' using the remastered karaoke in hopes that it would match better.. and I think it does blend slightly better but it's still not quite right.
And there's one particular transition towards the end which I always loved in my original mix and trying it again time after time.. I just can't get it right.. was a poor choice to begin with I guess, but since I still love going back into the album version at that point, I left it. Listening to my original mix at that point, it's a bad edit too but I never really noticed until I tried redoing it :)
I also changed the ending, partly by accident.. in trying to redo what I did the first time, I ended up with something too short and decided to use that for an ironic ending ;)
One thing that is very different in the karaoke mix is the sort of 'ride' high-hat cymbal. It's brought out more in the karaoke and placed in the left channel (as heard in the 2004 mix). On the album version, it's more muted but definitely should be more to the right channel so I've swapped the channels for the karaoke parts this time.
