The Most Wonderful Time of the Year ...for Mashups
December 9, 2008 10:49 AM   Subscribe

Why give someone the gift of song when you can give them multiple songs... all at once! Metafilter originally introduced me to mashups with the Santastic collection of holiday mashups and Bootie's annual 'Best of' compilation. Now it just doesn't feel like the holidays without songs like "You Shook Me All Noel" blasting from my car stereo.

Blitzkrieg Santa is particularly fun.

I attended Bootie LA's Christmas event / SantaCon afterparty over the weekend. To be perfectly honest, I was dreading the Christmas mashup set, because ten years of working in retail set Christmas music squarely in my mind as what gets played in Hell's waiting room.

I'm happy to say that I was mistaken. The Da Da Da / Ho Ho Ho mashup, especially, did a lot to get me in the Christmas spirit.

(Not a mashup, but it's required listening in any thread about MetaFilter and the holidays and blasting.)

Let's not forget DJ Riko's annual Merry Mixmas albums.

Nice! And I love the Santastic Four album cover.

My love of Adrian's mashups and Smash-up Derby almost makes me forgive him for that piece of shit newspaper piss clear

Pocketknife's Fader Christmas mix is full of weird Christmas remixes, but this first made me think of Whine and Missingtoe, a fine collection of hacked up classics. The most pleasant (which even gets looped in my head from time to time) is the one by Hell Interface (aka Boards of Canada).
