My head just exploded because the the two epic spiraling vortexes of iconic American pop have met and merged and made my head explode and it's exploded. Like a Rolling Sex Machine.

I dunno. It kind of reinforced my dislike of mashups.

That really shouldn't have worked that well, but it did....

That was the best 2 minutes 42 seconds of my day. Thanks, flapjax.

Where do people get these A Capella tracks? I just discovered that The Cars' Let's Go and The Beastie Boys' Fight For Your Right (To Party) go together perfectly if you pitch down Let's Go by half a step...but I can't really do it justice without the A Capella track of either.

Its the way my brain works; sitting in a cafe with one song playing, and I find myself singing the other song in my head

How can I isolate vocals?

This did sort of work, but my knowledge of the emotional tenor of the Dylan song sort of ruined my ability to enjoy the Brown side of things. I mean, LARS is an angry, bitter break-up song, perhaps the ne plus ultra of the subgenre. Listening to it ... it cuts through my body like a knife.That ... just doesn't connect with "I feel good ... like a sex machine."

BTW it's Bobby Z. C'mon.

At about the two-minute mark it makes the transition from greatness to INEFFABLE FUCKING SUBLIMITY. Thanks, this made my day!
