(!) Cyclic Nostalgia (Dua Lipa vs. Ratt)

Warezio - Cyclic Nostalgia (Dua Lipa vs. Ratt)

Dua Lipa - Future Nostalgia
Ratt - Round and Round

I can't let SMASH have all the fun.

Gender and mode fluidity went together in the hair band era, so I had to guess when to be major and when to be minor. If something sounds bad let me know.

Maybe you can, in the artwork, switch Dua's head with the guy 2nd left and vice versa....

Why not? :1tongue:

COOL AND FUN :1cool:

I might suggest adding a Flanger/Distortion effect on Dua Lipa's voice to bring her close to the mental.
Either way, I like it enough to recommend :1rolleyes:

Love the combo, Warezio! And great major/minor navigating throughout!

Can you “majorize” the last bit of the pre chorus around 0:42 and 1:33? The “myself…myself…myself”s? It sounds like you did a similar feat to the word “out”, so I’m assuming it’s possible…it might help a bit there…unless it doesn’t :1undecided:

And structurally, since the third Ratt verse has a modified (shortened) verse and pre-chorus, I would think about chopping up Dua’s part there in half, or doing something different there so she doesn’t spill over into the chorus. Also, consider “majorizing” whatever you end up using on that last few bars (where Ratt would say “put you on your shelf”.)

No joke. Dua Lipa isn't even the hottest chick in your cover image.

I was expecting to not like this because I'm not into current pop, but was pleasantly surprised. Both sources compliment each other and make this better to me than either of the songs alone.
