download: DJ Empirical, “Don’t Aleja-Round (Ace of Base vs. Lady Gaga)”
27 jun 2010

When I first heard Lady Gaga’s “Alejandro”, I thought the similarities to Ace of Base’s classic “Don’t Turn Around” were striking. I dug up the Gaga instrumental easily, but the Ace of Base a capella was tougher to find. In the end, I had to use the 2009 version, which has a slightly different vocal rhythm — not exactly what I wanted, but I think it works.

I upped this onto youtube when I made it, but I’m just now (Nov ’10) uploading it here for download.
