This is like Girl Talk without any of the awesome.

That ruled. My day just went up to 11.

Can't tell if this involves real skill or if we've arrived at a time where every single hit song is based on the same template so mashing it all together is trivial.

(Yes, I know some of the songs are quite old. Get off my lawn.)

AwkwardPause, I was just thinking the same thing. Also, I am older than all of those songs, so I might be the wrong person to have validate your thoughts

I preferred this Titus Jones

I rather liked Oops, I Shot Jolene's Mom (also Titus Jones). (needs more Dolly, though)

I'm more of a Bootie lover. (Best of Bootie 2005-2011)

I love this.

But Ke$ha stands out as the only one who can't sing.. she almost ruins it.

Man, I really do love this!

Is this something I'd have to be 25 and gay to understand?

Ke$ha stands out as the only one who can't sing

Quoted for truth.

Yes.

This sounds like my girlfriend's office christmas party when all the squares started putting on music.

Dobie, I was just thinking this is what the first floor of Macy's (formerly Field's) in Chicago sounds like, and one of the reasons I hate shopping there. I really thought the concept of the mashup would have fizzled by now, but I guess no such luck.

This is the first mashup I've heard that doesn't come off just sounding like noise to me. Pretty good! (And just a data point: also old enough to have been an adult when all of these were on the radio, and straight.)

This is feeling kinda shark-jumpy as mashups go.

I'm intrigued. How do you even go about creating something like this as an amateur?

This one of his is better IMHO.

Somebody I know just did a pretty nutty one... a lot more songs, a lot more variety. I don't think the mashup genre has totally jumped the shark, but you get that sharky feeling when it's nothing but major hits of the past 365 days...

It had both the listening part for those trying to pick out the original songs and the butt-shaking part so necessary for a mashup.

Are any of these cheesy mashups ever played at clubs? I'm too old to know anymore.
