Story

Lyrics:


We live in a fake world, you and I,
but it's okay; it's a great lie.

A world of illusions, reality
obscured by fake pleasures.

Digital personas across the screen,
painting a version of ourselves

But behind the mask, we are lost,
Looking for a sense of belonging.

 

Ref:
Plastic fantastic, nothing is real
Elastic, bombastic, emotions we conceal

Plastic fantastic, nothing is real
Elastic, bombastic, emotions we conceal

 

=== Danko ===

Wir gehen zur disco jeder Nacht
Ich habe mein lederhosen hier

Im voll gallop, ja das ist schön!
Jawohl, mein baby, pudelschlacht!

 

= Ref. =

 

Another plastic remix spinning 'round
Is that really what we needed?

A version with bleeps, bloops and eighties sound
Complete with a virtual singer

In a world where the new may steal the show
We find comfort in past glow

So let's celebrate the past and new
Uniting generations in an 8-bit deja vu.

 

Ref:


Plastic fantastic, nothing is real
Elastic, bombastic, emotions we conceal

Plastic fantastic, nothing is real
Elastic, bombastic, emotions we conceal

So, of course I had to try out this singing VSTi 'Synthesizer V'. And of course I asked ChatGPT for some lyrics (which I used as a base for my own addidions). Yes, some of the vocals sound good, and some of it does not. Luckily, there was some original danko-vox to add to it all …so yeah, hope that some people will find this remix fun to consume. I sure had fun creating it.

AI takes over!
I, for one, welcome our AI overlords. However, there is something off here. I like the inclusion of Danko's own vocals in there to throw us off the AI scent, but the phrasing is not how a singer would emphasize things.
Love it!!! Plastic Fantastic!!😍
Fun Fun fun! I like the lyrics and I appreciate the AI voice but it's a bit uncanny valley for me at times.
I am totally fascinated by the results that AI can give you these days. Honestly I heard a lot of worse tracks with singing in it where no AI was involved. Brilliant idea to mash up Danko's vocals with your own remix.
Impressive :) Didn't even know AI could do that, but of cause it can.
It's really rather spiffing good
Wow! Ai is better than most autotune cr4p!
Nostalic Vibes
Wobbler, apologies for the daly to appreciate your effort!

Wow.

There's so much to like about this remix, I don't even know where to begin. The lyrics is surprisingly deep (Another plastic remix spinning 'round / Is that really what we needed?), the AI voice is pretty good, the inclusion of Danko's vocals is just brilliant. Even the AI generated cover art looks fantastic!

Sure, the AI voice sounds unnatural at times, but overall, I really value a) the fun nature of this song, b) that fact that you were not afraid to experiment with AI, and c) that the end result sounds really good.

Well done!

LOVE this tune! So poppy…this kind of bubblegum pop is my guilty pleasure. I honestly didn't know it was an AI until I read the comments but it doesn't sully the tune for me. Excellent work…my vote for best remix 2023 is this. Also, the lyrics hit home HARD! lol also BIG nostalgic vibes here.

This is embarassing. I heard this when it was published, probably forgot due to all the other things in life to cater to. …then I attended the online stream from Bergen BIT Live 2023, and end game this popped out… …now there is no denial. Okay then. Wobbler, please appreciate the fact that there are well over a hundred remixes of Plasticpop. This is one of the better ones, shy of Mordi. Thank you for your interpretation.
