Audio Mash Ups

Try this one on for size.

Stayin’ in Black (The Bee Gees + AC/DC Mashup by Wax Audio)

It works very well. Any others out there?

Come Together-I Love Rock And Roll-Jump Around-Insane In The Brain

What I like about this one is that someone didn’t just slap two songs on top of each other and stick on youtube. They intricately edited the songs AND the videos together to make a new, cohesive song. Someone not familiar with any of these songs probably wouldn’t realize it wasn’t a single song.

I love that Bee Gees / AC/DC mashup!

Two of my favorites:

Fat Bottomed Girls Come Together
Owner of a Lovely Butt (Baby Got Back + Owner of a Lonely Heart)

Here are a couple of previous threads on mashups:

Is it a mash-up if you just combine the vocals of one song with the instrumental component of another song? Because Smash Mouth and Linkin Park fit together surprisingly well.

Stayin’ alive in the Wall, mashup of BeeGees and Pink Floyd

What, no one has mentioned Stairway to Gilligan’s Island yet?

Also, I suppose this isn’t technically a mash-up between two songs, but Double Rainbow Connection (a combination of the “double rainbow guy” video that went viral a few years ago with Kermit the Frog singing Rainbow Connection) always brings a smile to my face.

If You Kiss Jesus by Robin Skouteris, a mashup of Depeche Mode, Britney Spears, Katy Perry, Soft Cell, Goldfrapp, Hillary Duff, and FloRida.

I cannot for the life of me find it but there is a version of Gangam Style put to the Wii home music that is pretty damn brilliant.

A whole album’s worth of seamlessly meshed songs from nearly every contemporary genre of the last however many years. True music junkies will recognize bits of about a million songs they recognize in some form even if they can’t place the name.

Girl Talk - Feed the Animals. Link to a playlist of the whole album. You can randomly jump around on tracks and odds are good you’ll recognize something if you listen more than a few seconds, whether it’s rap, classic rock, fluffy pop, whatever. Lots of this stuff you’ll never in a million years hear in the same place besides something like this. Pretty cool.

There are versions of “Amazing Grace” done to the tune of “House of the Rising Sun”.

And at a concert a while back a performer did a pretty effective mix-up of “Dream” by the Everly Brothers and “Summer Song” by Chad and Jeremy.

My all time favorite mashup is “Call Me A Hole” - the music of Carley Rae Jepson’s “Call Me Maybe” with the vocals of Nine Inch Nail’s “Head Like A Hole” by PomDeter. My second favorite is nearly as unexpected - a mashup of Bob Dylan’s “Like A Rolling Stone” and James Brown’s “Sex Machine”.
