Zachy G Mashes A Lot Like Birds + The Weeknd
 
Head to the replies to check out Zachary Garren (Strawberry Girls)'s mashup of A Lot Like Bird's "A Blowtorch Is Applied To The Sugar" and The Weeknd's "Wicked Games".

I like most of Zac's stuff, but this one doesn't click for me

I'm usually a fan of your work Zaq, but this was crap. The song was just bland and blah and didn't really go anywhere; almost seems like you were trying to create some sort of ballad haha. Stick to your upbeat remixes.

I really enjoyed it. Zac, DO YO THANG GURLLLL.

i was going to listen to this, but my head exploded first.

just so you guys understand how this came about.... i was getting ready to do an original remix of the ALLB song so i was jamming different ideas under the vocal track by itself. one of the chord progressions i did was the same as The Weeknd's song "Wicked Games" so i decided that instead of just ripping that off, id try a mashup. the two songs were the same key but different tempos. because of this, i had to slow down the ALLB vocal track (i tried speeding up The Weeknd's track but it sounded a lot worse than slowing down the ALLB vocals instead). when i first got the idea, i wasnt sure how itd pan out, but i tweeted that i was thinking about doing a mashup of the two. i was thinking about just giving up on it at first, but a few people said they really wanted to hear it so i did the best i could with it. i think it turned out pretty cool. give it a few listens. if you dont like it, dont listen, its all good :) this is just for people who enjoy it, and you dont have to, dont trip

Do you know of any good links for an acapella of Wicked Games? Google is currently failing me.

I diggggg. The Weeknd has a lot of talent and this my favorite song by him.

nah, i dont know if you listened to mine, but i just used the original weeknd song + a lot like birds acapella, so i didnt use an acapella by the weeknd. i doubt there are any out there that are very good quality, because homemade acapellas are generally kinda weak.

I like it....but I can honestly say I have never listened to The Weekend before this. Haters gonna hate.
