Sherlock Poirot: Everybody Wants Something (Tears For Fears vs. A Great Big World)
Instrumental: A Great Big World - "Say Something"
Acapella: Tears For Fears - "Everybody Wants To Rule The World"
Bonus stuff: samples from "Dr. No"

As you should know from "Latin Uprising" and "I Don't Switch," I like to mess around with songs with time signatures other than 4/4. I initially got this idea last year, but I gave up on it due to the lack of available sources.

Never say never, right?

Tears For Fears trades their 80's backing for A Great Big World's piano and strings...and samples from a classic Bond flick. Get at me...

Amazing work sherlock, it gives the words of Tears for fears an extra dimension. The ease down piano just lifts the song :1smiley:

I just downsized their instrumental backing and ran with the song title. Nothing out of the ordinary. :1laugh:

Thanks, Lizzart.

I slowed them down by about 20% in Edison (an FL Studio plugin), plus some further tweaking to make them even more in sync with A Great Big World.

Yep, I noticed that. I initially decreased their pitch by eighty cents, but they still sounded a bit flat to me. I sometimes chalk it up to overanalysis, but when I added ten cents, they sounded better.

Thanks, hUDa.

Every second this is off the FRONT PAGE is too long. Masterful work here Mr Poirot. Especially poignant in light of our current geopolitical situation.
