Since the original intention was to play our fragmented records during the BYOB party (in combination with any additional sound from our physical projects), I decided to keep my creation as simple as possible--no pun intended.
The main record I used played the infamous track from the film The Breakfast Club: "Don't Forget About Me", by Simple Minds. I made one straight cut across the bottom so that the song would still be recognizable. The piece used to make the record whole again was from the soundtrack of another popular movie, James Bond's "Live and Let Die" from 1973.
The end result was quite fun and it definitely got stuck in my head!
