Mashup songs
Anyone else a fan of mashup songs? I found a couple of amusing ones tonight. :lol:

Re: Mashup songs
When I was a kid we called these type of songs "medleys" ;)

Re: Mashup songs
Medleys and mashups are quite different beasts. A medley is when you sing one song followed by another and another. A mashup is when you take two songs and mix or interleave the lyrics and melody of both songs together.

Re: Mashup songs
These are two of my favourites:

Moloko vs Elastica

PJ Harvey, Tori Amos, Bjork, Massive Attack

and less a mashup than sample, but one of the most sublime and original samples IMNHO:

Mos Def and Aretha Franklin

Re: Mashup songs
As a Beatles and Oasis fan, I really like this one:

I wish it used the superior guitar solo from the album version of "Let It Be," though.

Re: Mashup songs
Does Kid Rock's "All Summer Long" count as a mashup of "Werewolves of London" and "Sweet Home Alabama"? If so, I like that one.

Re: Mashup songs
And this one is so good that it actually changes your perception of both songs, as if they had always meant to be together:
