Best ever mash up song
« on: June 14, 2021, 01:20:18 am »
As I understand it a mash up song is a blend and mix of a couple of pre-existing songs with the aim of making the output rather pleasant and still acknowledging the heritage of the original mix.
So I'll start with this mash up that is basically Gary Numan's 'Are Friends Electric' with a nice bit of pop and female vocals overlaid.  As ever thoughts and comments and contributions welcome.

Hahah - one of my favourite topics. I've got loads I'd like to play, but sadly most of them breach copyright regs somewhere, and so none of them are on YouTube - or anywhere else online for that matter. My absolute favourite is Cassetteboy's 'Fred Horse', from their debut album The Parker Tapes, long-deleted. It's a beautiful mix of The Doors' 'Riders on the Storm', and Michael Jackson's 'Billie Jean', with additional material thrown in. It's a work of total genius, but clearly trouble for all, as we all know which of those two tracks came first! I could rip mine and post it but then I'd go to prison, but you can probably guess roughly what it sounds like.

Anyway, as consolation, I was recently sent this hilarious mash-up of Suzi Quatro and legendary Krautrock band Can - the Can Can Can...

Ahah! Yes! Someone's brave. Here you go - a tiny fragment at least ;)

I shouldn't have looked on Youtube... there are some utterly bonkers mash-ups there.

How's about this collaboration between Black Sabbath and the Temptations?



Or if you want somthing a bit more gothic, Bauhaus and DJ Alant.

I always thought S-Clubbed to Death was the best as a bit of a slower take on the genre:



Cassette Boy had a fun take on S Club on the Parker Tapes too.

"Ain't no party like a S-Club party!" :)

How about this one from Rowetta's Soundcloud site of Beyonce vs Happy Mondays? Choice mix. I was sort of connected with this bunch of total reprobates back in ye olden daze (Bez wouldn't have made G-Mex part 2 without me), so it's always nice to be reminded of the fun:
