Ticket 55: Two Become One

Got lots of song fragments lying around? Join two (or more) separate incomplete song together to make one whole song. Good for co-writing (A Day In The Life) or using up your own random ideas (I Am The Walrus).

Try to make sure there is some musical, lyrical or thematic common ground between the fragments eg lots of time changes (Happiness Is A Warm Gun), multiple characters – (Pam, Mr Mustard, Sun King, Her Majesty - The Abbey Road Medley), similar chord progressions (I Got A Feeling).

The Abbey Road Medley (obviously) also

A Day In The Life
Baby You're A Rich Man
Carry That Weight
Dig A Pony
Happiness Is A Warm Gun
I Am The Walrus
I've Got A Feeling

  2. Surprised you didn't put "Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey" in your examples list. That's a 'case in point' if I ever heard one.
