    This has come up a few times, and the answer is no, not with any degree of success, there are machines that phase reverse one side of a stereo image in the frequency range of the human voice, but so much of the rest of the track is in that range that it's really unusable.

    Your best bet is to try and find a MIDI file of the song and see what you can do with that, or find a good karaoke version.

    What a piece of work that was.:D

    Seriously this can't be done with any degree of audio success, you are always left with a big messy hole in the middle of the stereo image, or a mono image that sounds like it's been recorded with a fish.

    There are plug-ins that will remove the center image in a stereo file, but there is too much else in the middle that goes as well.
