Classic Warezio track. No doubt something you and your girls can enjoy together in the car!

Only thing holding me back from recommending is some clashing in the pre-chorus. H&O do that sneaky “shift to parallel major for a few bars” trick they love to do. You’ll have to manipulate a few of those E♭s up to E’s.

Code: Select all
Or you could try something like this:
         “You make a week-end feel like   a    year”
Old:     D      E♭  D   E♭    C   D    E♭  D     E♭
New:    E       F    E    F     C   E    F     E     F


(It's purely speculative that it will sound any better, and I could be off on my notes as I’m totally “earballing” it right now. :1undecided: Worst case scenario, could Katie go down 3 semitones there?)

Anyway, the chorus works out nicely--I CAN go for that. And I think the pre-chorus is fixable…or at least worth a try…

EDIT: Well I can’t get the formatting to work on my note chart, but hopefully you can decipher it...

Considering that I voted for this one over other worthy contenders, and that it almost won the Mash-Off, I'm going to go ahead and recommend this one so that MashG can send it to Mashup Paradise. :1rolleyes:

That sounds ready to me, but I'd say let's hear from Warezio if they're planning on making changes to this banger of a track or not. Solid job!

I want to try MashGyver's idea so allow me to report back first. (The good news is, one "distraction" has been my submission for this month's mashoff.)

(Posted version 1)

I tried several fixes but what I liked the best was pulling the instrumental up 3.

In retrospect those spots did sound discordant, hopefully going forward I'll be better at detecting major/minor clashes. Peer review FTW.

!Bop

I can live with minor discordance - in fact I can embrace it- I listen to a lot of wave which is deliberately clashy, so this level of minor ear tweaking does nothing to offend :)

V1 gets my approval. Transposing that small part of the instrumental was sneaky--it flowed quite seamlessly, and I did not hear an audible degradation in sound quality, so kudos for pulling that off!
