Mash-up Madness

Today I decided to post two awesome tracks created by some unknown Dj’s I found surfing the net. They were part of a CD filled with mash-ups, but these two were the only ones worth mentioning.
What’s a mash-up you say? It’s a song created by adding the vocal of one song to another or by just mixing multiple songs together.

The first one is composed out of two legendary 80’s songs: You spin me round from Dead or Alive (a band from Liverpool with transvestite/pirate Pete Burns as lead singer, check him out on youtube cause he looks hilarious) and Upside down by soul queen Diana Ross. The chorus of this remake: “You spin me… upside down… like a record baby… round and round” is pure win. To explain it math wise: catchy song + catchy song = übercatchy song.

The second one contains the D.A.N.C.E. vocal by Justice played along with I want you back by the Jackson 5, making it a really funky song.

Enjoy, Mr. Brown

It's not necessarily just two songs. I've seen mashups that have like 16 or 17 in the space of just 5 minutes.

I know, but I consider them to be the exceptions :p Though you've got a point

While we're on the subject, you just gave me a REALLY good way to introduce ELP to the blog.
