Like a Song? Make It Last 800 Times Longer

Donna Summer's "I Feel Love" has gotten the treatment. So has Justin Bieber's "U Smile." And David Bowie's "Heroes." Those are just a few examples of songs that have been time-stretched by various producers and remix artists -- meaning that they've been lengthened (sometimes a lot) without any changes in pitch. 

We take a listen to some examples of time-stretched music with author Tamara Palmer and producer TelegenicX, and hear about the history of the technique.

The toddler noises and mugging for the camera get transformed into what could quite possibly be the next dance hall hit.
