(FP) Legato - I see fire Alejandro (Ed Sheeran Vs Lady Gaga)

Dj Legato - I see fire Alejandro (Ed Sheeran Vs Lady Gaga)

Ed Sheeran - I see fire (Kygo Instrumental Remix)
Lady Gaga - Alejandro (Studio Acapella)

I've made another Tropical mashup tonight, not sure why i'm stuck in the tropical genre :1huh:
I think the Lady Gaga vocals fitted nicely over this one, any sugestions would be nice ?
I my self is almost satisfied with this, but i feel like somthing is missing :1undecided:
Originally i used som instrumental stems from Gaga as wel, but droped it on the final mix.
If anyone got the Ed sheeran acoustic instrumental, give me a shout.. I would love to try this acoustic :1smiley:

You have happily broken my judgemental mind \o/

I think what is missing is a little break between the phrases at certain locations, like if you give a break @0:38 and shift the part "you know that I love you boy..." to begin around 0:47 it will sounds better IMO. There might be more spots, and I guess you can figure that out after the first change. It's only a suggestion, Legato, it might improve or might not, I just feel that there is no verses or chorus, and the current structure is not fully sync with this mental :1undecided:

Well, you've found a killer combination with these two.

I think that SMASH's suggestion would help. But there are a couple of other things that I would suggest:

1. The song starts to drag near the end due to repetition. There is no break at all from the vocals, which, despite their enduring popularity, are pretty thin on content, I would strongly encourage you to find ways to drop out some of the vocals to allow that tropical instrumental shine on its own and give the listener some relief from Gaga's voice.

2. Another option would be to bring in a solo from another song. I could hear a nice keyboard solo sounding great about 2/3 of the way in with this one.

But it's still very close to getting my recommend as it is. One thumb up for now.

Wow! Thanks for the feedback guys, this is how i learn :1cool:

I did exactly what you both suggested, and it came out even better i think :1smiley:
I re phrased some parts, and tightened up the timing overall.

Thanks again :1grin:

Sometimes the subtle touches make a big difference.
