I have an idea but just can't quite make it work

Recommended Posts

Ok so I've had this in my head a while. Two seemingly different songs but with similar themes and pretty spot-on time signatures. The first one, a classic we all know, Chemical Plant Zone from Sonic 2

I always thought it would juxtapose strangely well with an unexpected source, the Nova Scotian folk band Great Big Sea and their Chemical Workers' Song

By speeding up CWS to 125%, I could get it to line up pretty well on the chorus ("Go boys, go... They'll time your every breath" Matches up with Chemical Plant's strong 3-note chorus, and then the trailing F# at the end lines up with the "And you go....." part of CWS.)

These parts line up so well, I think, that some sort of mashup just has to be made with these songs. Problem is, I simply lack the basic musical talent needed to make a remix like this. I tried pulling it all into Audacity and lining it up and it just sounded like donkey crap. Is there anyone here who cares enough to take a shot at what maybe at least the chorus would sound like? I feel like with a little bit of help, I could make this work. Or if someone with a lot more talent than I feels like doing it all themselves and taking all the credit I'd love to hear it. I just want this mashup to exist.

Anyone curious enough to try?
