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.
