A recent BoingBoing article introduced me to “mashups”, songs that are mixed together from the instrumental track of one tune and the vocal track of another, completely different tune. I went looking for more, more, MORE! and because I’m a nice guy and I love you all very much, I’m going to share them with you.
In addition to Gomez Soul, Get Your Green On and the not-to-be-missed Stereo Kelly, the guys responsible for those tracks have also hidden away Cheeba Mortado and My Favorite Name on their awful flash website, worthy tracks all.
Elsewhere, via Mashmix.com, I have obtained a surprising Shaggy V. The Beatles mix that defies description. And my serious guilty pleasure in all this, Jet and Christina Aguilera, which I urge you to download, no matter what you might be thinking, because it’s all kinds of fun.
Shaggy seems to be a popular victim of this process. This realaudio bit may or may not be useful, but I have in my possession a Shaggy V. RATM mix that’s absolutely world-class, and if you’ve got an inbox that can take four megabytes of the People’s Elbow, I will pass it around.
If you know about any of more of these that I should have you must provide me with linkage immediately. The power of Mike compels you! The power of Mike compels you!
