AeroSting (Featuring @LanaDelRey)

Click to download Source File.
After a few years of avoiding new material, SpacePirate gave Honeymoon a listen. Right out in the open at the beginning of the very second track, the vocal hook was practically begging to get sampled.

Progression of chords sounded relatively familiar.
Two songs came to mind which resembled.

Samples were taken, of the 1993 Sting song "Shape of My Heart" as well as the 1973 Aerosmith song "Dream On" (a sample more heavily relied on by Eminem in the song "Sing for the Moment"). These two samples together, however, fit perfectly; particularly in tone, when properly adjusted for tempo.

They've both been slowed down by a few tones so that they match the slow pace of the Del Rey lyrics. That tempo is about 69bpm. You can test BPM's here on the Space Pirate Online BPM Calculator. Here's the song in its current form on Soundcloud:

More Gripes (A Rhyme While I'm Bored)

Coming up on another ill galaxy
Summing up all the wackness and fallacy
Falling into the weakness and malady
All the kids from the high school of Amity
Overcoming all the obstacle calamity
All the ones with the funds for the fun
And their family begun to take a stake in the sun
Selling off in shares to the best prepared

So you best to be prepared; You best to be aware.
You best to not dare to do the carebear stare.
Standing in your E.T. underwear.
Selling anti-fear pills, makes them scared.

hard like callouses they are;
ferrous like the soil from the planet of mars
Will they funnel all the money into one global currency?
One fiat, one under the sun, you see.

You best to call the deputy.
There's a spot where you can stand right next to me.
I only see equality.
