Default Non-existing instrumental?

Hello there, it's just a try, but I can wait another 20 years than find this:

I know it's Isaac Hayes - Title Theme from Three tough guys... But point is instrumental does not exist!?
So how come?

Seriously? You expect every song to have an instrumental version? Why?

Here, I'll do you a solid. There's an open source separation library known as Deezer Spleeter - it can separate the voice from the instrumental (and even more). The following site, Melody ML, is a site that's hosted by some generous soul that uses Deezer Spleeter. You can use this tool for free, you just need to provide an e-mail address (yes, you can use a bunk email address and it should still work). I've used it before when I want to get fancy with house mixes.

https://melody.ml/

Get yourself an MP3 version of the track you're talking about and give it a try, you'll just need to upload the track on the site and choose how you want it to be separated. When it's done, you can download the zip file from the site containing the isolated tracks - just extract the zip and there you go. It aint perfect, but it's pretty damn good. It runs on Python and Tensorflow (a machine learning library) if you're interested in the technicalities.

Point is, in the video is instrumental version, and video is from 2001, so instumental must exist? :-) I doubt in that year exists something to separate voice from it... But maybe some MPC should handle it...

They probably paid the record company to use the instrumental track that they had but never released commercially. Or maybe it does exist, the creator had it and it's just not widely available nowadays.

Mystery solved?
