ABBA - Lay All Your Love On Me
I'm still not quite sure where this came from. I remember hearing Tijuana Taxi on the radio one day and thinking, "Hey, that's a catchy tune with no vocals to contend with. I wonder if I could mash it up." But somehow I ended up with Aranjuez instead. I'd also been eager to do an ABBA mashup, but I was having a hard time finding source materials.
So I ended up putting the full song of Lay Your Love On Me on top of Aranjuez, which worked reasonably well. However, the only acapella I could find for Born To Be Alive was a cover version that sounded a lot like Patrick, but the singer was so pitchy (both sharp and flat) that even with a full trial version of Melodyne I couldn't fix the vocal enough to get the mods at Mashstix to get even a recommend.
It's a fun mix with some fatal flaws. At the time, I really couldn't hear the vocalist's problems. Now it's all I hear.
