First off, yes, I know this might fall under the commercial mp3 sharing warning, and I challenge that with this: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.5/ which is available with the tracks.
That being said, I don't think that sharing is a problem.

Anyway,
The popular PS3/Xbox360 game Mirror's Edge has a song called "Still Alive" performed by Swedish rock/pop star Lisa Miskovsky. Along with the game and its song, they put out a remix album, see here: http://www.mirrorsedgemusic.com/

This is where the gray area comes in.
On this page: http://www.jamglue.com/contests/mirrorsedge there is a contest that has people submit their own remixes of Still Alive, and provides the separate song channels for their work. The separate channels each have a Creative Commons license, granting one to copy, distribute and transmit the work, and to remix and adapt the work.
Naturally, I took to trying to use it with Music Generator, but I cannot
seem to do it due to a lack of RAM and Sampler kit....

Maybe someone here can work with it?
I don't know.

If this topic doesn't break the rules, then have at it, I guess.
If it does break them, then at least I can have an idea of what to legally put. :/

Well regardless of how this ends up, or however you roll, have fun with this knowledge. :)
(The track is at 107 BPM)

Oh yeah, a review on Amazon's US site for the remix album kills me: "Track 4: Still Alive (Armand Van Helden Mix) - sounds astoundingly unprofessional to me, like something you'd pull out of MTV's Music Generator game from the PS2."

All songs were made between 2001 and 2005,
unless otherwise noted)

I am not a proper musician, I do this for fun.
My songs suffer because of that...

I am more adept in the following:
