My very first mashup (if you can really call it that.) Originally titled "One Stereo Love Stand," this one got a complete makeover in March of 2016. Back in 2014 I noticed that the Kenny Hayes Remix of One Life Stand sounded a lot like the instrumental part of the P__i & Jaro Remix of Stereo Love. I figured out the beats-per-minute for both, made the adjustments in Audacity and then layered one on top of the other. The whole mashup was less than 3 minutes long because most of the track didn't work, so I faded the mix out after about 2:55. It wasn't until I posted the mashup on SoundCloud that someone pointed out that the two songs were not even in the same key! It turns out that One Life Stand was one semitone lower than Stereo Love.
I was pretty discouraged that my endeavor turned out to be mostly a failure, but after a while I got the itch to make another mashup, and this time I knew that I needed to check that both songs were in the same key signature.
When it came to making the remake I added both parts of another remix (Paul & Luke) as well as liberal doses of the studio acapella from Stereo Love and the song works from start to finish now, with one awkward spot about 3/4 of the way through. This one may get another update yet. Who knows.
