There's some really good Mashups (mixes of 2 or more songs) out there. Some you only seem to hear in the club or on a particular radio station. Some may be hard to find. But thats part of the fun.
The interesting thing about this genre is that 2 songs that at first glance would not seem to mix well together end up being just unreal when mixed together.
For example, some killer mashups I've heard:
Green Day vs Oasis - Boulevard of Broken Dreams
50 Cent vs Nine Inch Nails - Up in the Club mixed with Closer
I've heard several Nirvana songs remixed by trance djs but don't really know the name of the artists. ??
What are some great mashups you've heard?
Note: They renamed Boulevard of Broken Dreams to Boulevard of Broken Songs when they mixed them together...
just pm'ed you some links
i love this kind of stuff
the guys who did boulevard (and some buddies) did a mashup of the whole album, called dean gray's, american edit, lawyers hit it with a cease and desist in about ten days, pm me if you want a link for a download
There's a site called 'Go Home Productions' that do some excellent mash-ups!!
I heard a great one last night: Janis Joplin's "Mercedes Benz" with Beck's "Go It Alone".
I'm not sure if these count as "mashups"
Tupac - Starin' Through My Rearview - Tupac's lyrics laid over, "In The Air Tonight" by Phil Collins...I've heard a version with Phil doing the original chorus, but currently don't have it.
Tupac - Changes - His simular use of Bruce Hornsbys* "The Way It Is"
Bone, Thugs N Harmony - Home - Which is another Collins song "Take Me Home" I think they might have been paying homage to Tupacs "Rearview" with this one, the lyrics are written in the same vain, a bit less sincere, but still a good song.
And thanks for posting the...Go Home Productions...site
my absolute fave mash-up is definitley linkin park and jay-z
