Deeply Crazy

One's a spine-tingling howl of alienation gleaned from a spaghetti western. One's a bluesy transatlantic barnstormer that turned a young British singer into an icon of soul. Both feature powerful voices in unconventional styles mulling over intense feeling. And together, thanks to mash-up artist Divide & Kreate, they make for one of the best remixes out there [.mp3]. There's a similar mix with Cee Lo if you're so inclined, or check out the dueling cover by Upstart to hear the vocals beautifully intertwine. Mash-ups previously on MeFi.

That cover mashup (the "dueling cover" link) is so well done - I really enjoyed it. Thanks!

I consider Adele to be just-short-of-awesome, but wasn't sure until now just what she needed... the answer, DJ DangerMouse on instrumental mix.

Oh, well, we could've had it all...

I like that Upstart cover best, too.

I worked in a cubicle all summer and between the radio station tuned in by someone across the aisle and the piped in music in the Tim Horton's and local deli, Rolling in the Deep and its follow-up single were played almost to death for me. I now have hope that I can listen to Adele and enjoy her again some time in the future.

I like the Upstart cover best too. But I have to say, while Adele has an amazing voice, Crazy is just a much better, catchier song.

I opened the "bluesy transatlantic barnstormer" link to find out what the 2nd song would be, and was confused but excited when the KitKat Gimme A Break song started playing. I mean, I don't understand why you'd describe this ad jingle as bluesy, but what do I know? That's what I get for opening stuff in new tabs to listen while I keep reading elsewhere. Now I keep wondering what that mashup would have sounded like.

That said, the mashups with Adele were pretty great too.
