Check Out “The Floppotron” Play The Eurythmics “Sweet Dreams”

I do believe that I’ve seen the Floppotron performing Sweet Dreams by The Eurythmics before and I still believe it’s impressive, but that electronic growl is hard to get past. This tune is perhaps one of the best that has been adapted in this manner however since despite the fact that the original is a lot smoother and more pleasing to the ear, the constant backbeat in the song is done quite well by the machinery that is being used. I still want to know how the song is programmed into the hardware though since this seems very much like a more technological version of an organ grinder.

This shows that there a lot of ways to display music and make it be understood, though understandably people are going to find their favorite methods and stick to them as much as possible. Personally I like the original version of Sweet Dreams but some folks might actually like this version and even call it more masterful than the original. I don’t know of anyone that would but it could happen. In any case the music that is produced is easily copied in various ways so long as you can learn the rhythm and the tempo. The sound is not as important but can be added in later to flesh the song out and give it more depth that it might need in order to convey the meaning behind it or the emotions. Music to some is a mathematical equation, as it would almost have to be here in order to make this work. Being that I’m horrible at math I tend to ignore that portion of it as much as I can and focus instead on the feeling and the emotions that go into each song. It’s kind of a forced bliss that some people enjoy but know very well is not possible to sustain at times due to the necessity of math in our everyday lives. In music however math might have its place, but a lot of people prefer that place to be in the metaphorical back seat.

In this case though it’s really needed to run the program obviously. Thankfully the program and the machines are able to replicate the music in such a way as to be easily recognizable and even somewhat enjoyable if you just sit and listen. The whole idea behind this is something I can’t fully fathom as it would take a different mindset to wonder just what Sweet Dreams would sound like in another medium. It’s that kind of inquiring mind that drives innovation thankfully and makes us wonder ‘what if?’ on a fairly regular basis. Without that we wouldn’t be able to grow as a society and learn new ways to do things, and as a result stagnation would occur. It might not be the preferred method of delivery for some but at the very least it’s a new and imaginative way to present something that’s already a part of pop culture.
