I'll throw out a recommendation for Big Ruckus' Walkie Talkie Vertigo Man, a mashup of Steriogram's Walkie Talkie Man and U2's Vertigo, found via the Daily Source Code. It's one of the few mashups that transcended novelty and made its way into my music library.

Yeah, these are pure novelty, but that's ok. I never expect more from a mashup. They're still fun to have around every once in a while and this site had dozens I've never heard before.

well i'm downloading like crazy. they may be "novelty" but i remain fascinated by them. thanks for this!!

I'm a huge fan of mashups, well-done ones that is.
I wish the artists themselves would take the inspiration and radically change/mix genres occasionally just for fun.
Holy crap, live preview is weirding me out.

i'm finding i like them so much more when i already know both songs.

and yeah live preview scared me too. when i type it shows up in two places...ooooooh!

So far my favorite is a short mashup of Missy Eliot vs Green Day, "Get Yo' Green On". It's not very long, but it just sounds so energetic and spunky. She really needs to quit rap and go into pseudo-punk.

Thanks so much for the post! I've been scouring the web for "Rapture Riders" for a while (the original maker, Go Home Productions, is releasing it on his full length).

Thanks again very much!

Mashup of the Week podcast has lots more mashups (including the one I previously linked to) for those who want 'em.

Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and Paradise City are two great tastes that taste great together.

These came from the Pho List, btw :)

I love mashups. The Fitty Cent meets Benny Hill is most definitely worth your time. I'm still laughing.

/wow the live preview is freaking me out as well. Nice addition.

smells like emerge....both songs have this hyperstatic startup that just leaves you waiting for KABLAMO but the remix drops the ball there...still an extraordinary artifact

more mashups c/o the no talent hack dsico
pink vs david bowie is a fave...
posted by gusset at 3:14 AM on July 21, 2005


the 'nelly v grange hill' mashup is a personal favourite.
posted by the cuban at 3:20 AM on July 21, 2005


It is nice to know both artists, but even knowing one makes mash-ups so much fun.

Live preview is like going down the rabbit hole.
posted by OmieWise at 3:55 AM on July 21, 2005


as much as i hate the common use of "mashup" lately, the led zeppelin + biggie mix is f'in hot.
posted by lotsofno at 5:09 AM on July 21, 2005


Maybe it's because "Waiting Room" just rocks so incredibly hard that it's hard to screw up, but that Fugazi/Destiny's Child mashup is pretty f'in good.
posted by psmealey at 5:11 AM on July 21, 2005


Joni vs. Soundgarden is the best one I've found so far.

Oh, and Live Preview kicks ass!
posted by ZenMasterThis at 5:30 AM on July 21, 2005


These are great-thanks. If you can find "The Stooges- No Fun VRS. Salt and Peppa- Push it' you'll be astounded.
posted by PHINC at 5:36 AM on July 21, 2005


I'm listening right now to the Pink vs. ELO one. I admire the cleverness of this, even if it is "just" a novelty genre. I'm handicapped in choosing which ones to listen to because my interest in pop music began to wane about the time Paul Simon released his Graceland album.

Am I the only persson who chuckled at "about forty of them, to be exact?"

Live Preview! Awesome!
posted by solotoro at 6:17 AM on July 21, 2005


And I STILL had a friggin' typo. Nevermind, I'm not smart enough to use Live Preview.
posted by solotoro at 6:17 AM on July 21, 2005


Possibly showed up here prior, as it was on BoingBoing but try GoodBlimey/tunes/
posted by rzklkng at 7:08 AM on July 21, 2005


The songs are pretty cool.. though a lot of the oldies I just dont recognize.. Never even heard of Fugazi or Lyrics Born.. But this is still really cool.. Thanks for the link.

I've had about 50/50 success with mashuptown. They had a Kelley Clarkson mashup I was going to alert Matt about, but then I listened to it and, well, blargh. You might also find something you like at DJ Reset's site.

Thanks for all the links, folks!

I enjoyed Daft Punk vs. Queen.

The Fugazi/Destiny's Child mashup is the worst thing I have ever heard.
posted by trbrts at 7:54 AM on July 21, 2005


Those are pretty good,
but by far the best mashups are This is how you remind me how bad your music sucks. (Nickelback V. Nickelback)
and All Linkin Park Songs Sound the Same (has some great polyrhythms)

99X, bam! The future of rock 'n' roll. 99X, bam! The future of rock 'n' roll. 99X, bam! The future of rock 'n' roll.

Edible Energy: the Linkin Park mash: is that two different songs, one each in the left and right channel?
posted by e40 at 8:32 AM on July 21, 2005


yep.
Pan your speakers all the way left then all the way right.
It's "Pushing Me Away" over "Numb."

Zampa, awesome.
posted by Edible Energy at 8:45 AM on July 21, 2005


My favorite mashup has to be the Kasabian-Whitney Houston one that was on Stereogum last year.

That said, I lurve the Kleptones. I think their stuff does transcend novelty.
posted by Sully6 at 8:54 AM on July 21, 2005


Someone really needs to try the sermon that opens Prince's "Let's Go Crazy," mashed with Strauss's "Also Sprach Zarathustra, Op. 30: Sunrise"--the prologue heard in "2001" and Elvis shows, etc. I could do this on an old cassette player that could play two tapes simultaneously, something it wasn't supposed to do. It's short, but mighty.

I dunno if most of these count as mashups, but I really enjoy the stuff rx has done over at The Party Party... In particular, "Imagine" and "My Name Is Rx."

Oy, you just made my last gray hair stand on end. Off to find some prune juice and geritol. Kids these days!

MIA vs Squirrel Nut Zippers is my favorite of the year so far.
posted by bendybendy at 10:42 AM on July 21, 2005


...to which I'd like to add, mashing in AC/DC or Queen should be disallowed at this point, since it seems they fit over anything.
posted by bendybendy at 10:45 AM on July 21, 2005


Can I second dsico, specifically his Missy Elliot / Joy Division attempt?
posted by joe lisboa at 11:23 AM on July 21, 2005


If you can find it, a great mashup CD is Parallel Universe vol.1 and 2 by DJ broken window. Its just two turntables and two odd tracks that merge together perfectly. The analog mashup in its simplest form.

post of the day - thank you. :)


after watching the highly recommended "the corporation" last night... i needed a little pick me up.
posted by specialk420 at 11:51 AM on July 21, 2005


aaah! That MIA v. Squirrel Nut Zippers mashup hurts my brain.
posted by Edible Energy at 12:06 PM on July 21, 2005


thanks for the links! The walkie-talkie mashup is addictive. I personally also like the list from LA station 103.1 . Try the Britney vs. Bowie (I know, I know, but just listen. I swear, it sounds good.)

That 50cent/Benny Hill one is fucking amazing.

Any hints on if I can play .wma files on a Mac? OSX?

Yep, they actually have (the hilariously titled) Windows Media Player For Mac.

It's not that bad.. at least you can still use computers unlike my parents.. I tried to talk them through using email and needed to them "press the red button with the "X" on it on the top right side of the window". They replied with "hold on let me get my flashlight". They were looking behind the actual monitor!

Go Home Productions (a k a Mark Vidler).

I see Live Preview is evolving before our very eyes. Preview button - nice!
posted by skoosh at 1:24 PM on July 21, 2005


The band Ruinzhatova, comprising the Ruins and another band (I think called Hatova), has a track consisting of a cover of "Sex Machine" in one channel and "Larks Tongues in Aspic II" in the other.

The Benny Hill one is exactly what 50 Cent deserves.
posted by interrobang at 4:27 PM on July 21, 2005


actually interrobang, (while an admirable try) it didn't sync the beats too well. he deserves better, because he always rhyme tight (if you don't know, now you know).
posted by gorgor_balabala at 5:09 PM on July 21, 2005


skoosh: Glad you linked to GHP. Vidler's the master. His mashup of Christina Aguilera with The Velvet Underground ["Girl Wants (to Say Goodbye to) Rock & Roll"] is unbelievably great. (#2 on my list would be Freelance Hellraiser's famous mash of Destiny's Child's "Bootylicious" with Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit.")

I doubt I'm anywhere in the league of most of the links above, but here's my sole (so far) contribution to the whole mash-up craze: Just Can't Get Flexible in 1999 (Depeche Mode "Flexible" and "Just Can't Get Enough" and Prince "1999").
posted by djwudi at 6:47 PM on July 21, 2005


For a moment there, the Benny Hill/50 Cent mashup was the only song on my iTunes playlist, and so it repeated over and over and over and, strangely, it never got old. Holy cow I'm in a much better mood than I was in before.
posted by socratic at 10:28 PM on July 21, 2005


I'll stick to the GYBO board for the latest mashups.


I also do them under the name 'Corporation'.


here are a couple from a few years ago :

I Think We're Rocking the Planet Now - Tiffany visits Afrikaa

Dirrty Man in the Mirror - Christina touches Michael
