Last week, we brought you the too horrible to exist promo for Microsoft's Songsmith, a program that allows you to sing into a mike and put incredibly terrible backing music underneath your equally awful vocals.

Above is a version of Radiohead's "Creep" that doesn't try to replicate Jonny Greenwood's huge two-chord metallic ringing before the chorus--instead the song sounds vaguely reggae-like and mostly terrible.
Here's a version of The Police's "Roxanne" that replaces the song's bouncing rhythm for corny steel drums that somehow seems to moderately improve the song, making it far less serious:
