You can remix Bob Dylan's 'Subterranean Homesick Blues'

Sony Music is having a contest where you can remix a classic Dylan tune.

This is interesting. Sony Music's The Remix Project is a contest on Facebook where music fans can create their own remix of Dylan's "Subterranean Homesick Blues" using the song's original 4-track "stems"--the individual vocal, guitar, bass, and drum tracks.

Fans can mix and match the components of the original, with new versions of the classic that have been recorded for the project by Sony Music artists, including The Ting Tings, 2AM Club, and more. Best of all, fans can record and upload their own covers of "Subterranean Homesick Blues," and add those to the mix as well.

Fans who create remixes can submit their work to "The Remix Project" for others to listen to and vote on. All participants who submit a remix over the next four weeks will be automatically entered into a contest to win a Grand Prize, an all-expenses-paid trip to the South by Southwest music festival in Austin, TX in March, along with other prizes including Dylan's "The Original Mono Recordings" box set and "The Bootleg Series Volume 9 - The Witmark Demos." All participants qualify for a sweepstakes to win one of 10 Sony Style gift cards.
