I really like both of these songs individually so I thought I'd like this one, but sadly I didnt:-\
The ending sounds cluttered when the backing vocals from the instrumental and dua lipa sings together, maybe cause they are so different.

The energy is there but I think there is a key issue on this one.

Hmmmm, I actually double checked with my son and he didn't hear such issue :1embarassed:
In case there is, maybe it's only in the chorus :1undecided:

Thoughts?

My ears were happy at 0:09 (verse), still happy at 0:28 (pre-chorus), found the resolution a bit dissatisfying at 0:43, was mostly happy during the chorus except for a few passing notes ("it's too late").

Above my pay grade I think. Nothing stands out as obviously wrong in the chorus, but it's not strongly gelling with the instrumental either.

The instrumental is in Dmaj and the vocals are in Gmaj. There is harmonic dissonance as a result.

Where r u MashGyver? Maybe it's one of those where you can take some bits one way and other bits another, but I hear what others hear re:incidental note fixes, and the chorus sailing on it's own.

Kids lie to us 'cos they love us sometimes :) Always ask the wife after you piss her off is my motto :1grin:

My kids routinely fail to care about being fifthed-up. I think they are more sensitive to rhythmical and energetic alignment. Maybe most listeners are?

But there is plenty of music out there, so if we are going to recycle it, we might as well nail it.

It's a nice combination but I have to agree that unfortunately it's not fully harmonic. Nothing completely off but not quite satisfying neither... :1cry:

Unfortunately I agree with the others here, SMASH. It’s the old Fifth Monster again. :1sad: As I was listening, I thought the verse might be reconcilable--there are only a few notes that really need to be tweaked. And then the “So I cut you off” section was a little bit more challenging, and then the chorus just seems like it never locks in harmonically.

Sorry, my friend.
