"Mom and Dad, this is Chasey"

Grind rock and roll and pour it in a musical glass of your choice
  [vote for,

On stage: The Bloodhound Gang

Now playing: " The Ballad of Chasey Lain "

A fun little ditty in it's own right, and an earworm in my household for the last couple of weeks. But I've grown tired of playing the original from my Grooveshark queue, and I would really like to get my fix in a different form.

What I really need is a piece of software that I can load a song in the front end and the other end will discharge a classical version of that song, done in strings, wind instruments, and the horns of your choice.

Speaking of horns of choice, go check out the original. You may want to make sure that your parents / children can't hear it.

Music translation software Nice idea [nz]. But no bun. [pocmloc, Jun 27 2014]

       Always wanted one that could transpose to farmyard animal sounds, like the Ride of the Valkyries done with cow, sheep and chickens...now that would be classy.

       I have an abiding image that accompanies that one.   

       Can never hear the Ride of the Valkyries without a) an image of Elmer Fudd in a horned helmet popping into my mind & b) hearing him sing 'kill the w'aabbit' along to it.

       Well, once somebody wrote the basic algorithms you could add your choice of output modes. I think the primary challenge would be defining how the analyzer function identified drums and symbals. You would either want to leave all that in untouched or edit it out completely.   

       Aha, [pocmloc] beat me to it back in 2011 (link). I salute you.   

       I view this tool as being offered in the usual manner - freeware for a stripped down model offering translation to classical only, then when you buy the upgrade you get all the bells and whistles [pocmloc] envisions, plus the drum samples kit consisting of every possible thing that could be beat on.

       + I like it and think it's perfectly halfbaked.

       Mom and Dad this is Chasey
Chasey this is my mom and dad
Now show 'em them titties
Now show 'em them titties

       And that's the most polite verse in the song...
normzone, Jun 27 2014

       This may quite possibly the dirtiest song I have heard yet here.
blissmiss, Jun 27 2014

       Sounds like.... nah, I can't be bothered (don't think I could beat that anyway)... I was going to say, a challenge?
Skewed, Jun 27 2014

       Ok, I lied [bliss] I can be bothered, rather than inflict the lyrics I'll just pop a link in, remember this? classic ACDC & surely ruder (or at least as)?   

       [bigsleep] I'd forgotten that song, used to like, realise I still do.   

       <edit> Ok, just listened to Chasey Lain, I think it wins (the ACDC is funnier though).

       Well, there is the "too inebriated to procreate" from my yoof. They did play it on the radio, but so many beeps....
not_morrison_rm, Jun 27 2014

       This idea popped up in my head again yesterday, on my weekly trip to the beach. I wanted to hear Insane Clown Posse " Southwest Voodoo " done in opera.

       DeepMind's WaveNet tech might be able to do this (similar to the well-known image style thing).
notexactly, Apr 26 2017

       I have avoided having anything to do with the algorithms that are billed as AI these days, but since it's happening with images and text, I wonder if they've done it with music yet.   

       Not willing to go look though. Too many challenges for my mind at this time already. Nice to see all of you again though.
