During April of 2006, I ran a recording studio at Mercer Union. Passersby were stopped and asked to sing, from memory and with no practice, the Beatles' Yesterday. They were given headphones with an instrumental track to help them out. If they couldn't remember the words, they were told to "just make it up." Everyone was paid a $5.00 performance fee. I then took all the versions recorded and created several different mixes.
