Description

This project was created in response to the common pop cultural belief that "Let It Bleed" by the Rolling Stones was inspired by "Let It Be" by the Beatles. The artist chopped and rearranged the original tracks, panning the remixed versions on on the left and right audio channels to showcase the similarities. The video also contains a mixture of visuals from both bands.

This entire track is constructed out of two of the most well-known songs in the history of music, Let It Be by Beatles and Let It Bleed by Rolling Stones. Each track was sliced into small pieces and rearranged. Let It Be is panned on the right channel, Let It Bleed is panned on the left channel.
Quote from Wikipedia:
"Many believe that this song (Let It Bleed) was a take on the Beatles' album Let It Be. The titles are very similar, and there was a running history of the Stones and the Beatles tweaking each other. The Stone's Let It Bleed was released months before Let it Be, but it should be noted that most of the songs from Let it Be had been recorded earlier than most of the songs in Let It Bleed, and was a known project."
