Tears For Fears - "Everybody Wants To Rule The World" (Instrumental) (found on the Super Deluxe Edition of "Songs From The Big Chair", available on Amazon USA)
Fleetwood Mac - "Don't Stop" (acapella + guitar track) (buy regular version on the "Rumours" album, available on Amazon USA)
When the Super Deluxe Edition of "Songs From The Big Chair" hit, I was looking forward to playing with a proper "CD quality" (vinyl...meh) copy of the "Everybody Wants To Rule The World" instrumental mix.
After a few hours of searching for a workable acapella, I found the Fleetwood Mac vocal track. It's shocking how little I really had to do to the acapella to make it fit. The guitar track was equally perfect. I think I slightly adjusted, at most, five notes.
As I am stuck in the 70s / 80s lately when it comes to artists to mash up, I thought I would pay a tribute to Star-Lord (who?), and have a bit of fun with the "Awesome Mix". You know this would work on Awesome Mix, Vol. 2. Are you listening, James Gunn? :)
