Too bad it's not all instrumental. That would have made it so much better.

[Cool Story Bro]

I have known DJ BC for a while (I spin at Bootie Boston every now and then, which is a mashup night he runs in Boston) and he is a real stand up guy. His music rocks too![Cool Story Bro]

/seriously...you should check out some of his other stuff on his site.

Philip Glass Buys A Loaf of Bread

I love Philip Glass. The other crap that was mixed in made something that is utterly unlistenable.
 
2011-04-04 08:03:11 PM  
Hooray! I get to share my favorite knock-knock joke:

Knock knock
Who's there?
Philip Glass
Philip Glass who?
Knock knock

/love it

Meh.
Old.
Not very good.

Almost all mashups I've heard, with the exception of some Kleptones stuff, have been disappointing. So much so that I don't even bother anymore.
 
2011-04-05 02:14:20 AM  
I think Girl Talk has mastered the art of the mashup, I really enjoy his style.

That said, Ghosts Over Baghdad is great, Outkast meets Deadmau5. (new window)
