Subject: Backstreet Boys vs. Britney Spears - (You Drive Me) Crazier Than Life

I've been meaning to post this for a while. I made another mashup! I already posted this one on Twitter a while ago when I released it, but didn't post it here. Oops.

This one is called (You Drive Me) Crazier Than Life (direct download link) and is a mashup of these two songs:

  • Larger Than Life, by the Backstreet Boys
  • (You Drive Me) Crazy, by Britney Spears
Thanks to a friend of mine for the suggestion to make this mashup and for the ideas for what to do with the mashup while I was making it!

As always, feedback is very much appreciated. :D

Subject: Nelly Furtado vs. Rihanna - Disturbia Night

So I decided I quite liked doing the last mashup, and I decided to make a new one. This one is called Disturbia Night (direct download link) and mashes up these two songs:

  • Night Is Young, by Nelly Furtado,
  • Disturbia, by Rihanna
Trigger warning: "Disturbia" is about mental anguish - I liken it to suffering from depression - and its lyrics reflect that, even though it's a pop song (and this mashup is even more poppy). In addition, the juxtaposition of the two songs makes it sound like the person suffering from depression is being told that they can just stop suffering by merely wanting to do so. Of course, this doesn't actually work.

Let me know what you think!

(Don't worry, btw - I'm not intending for this to become a journal of mashups. I've found that I do like making them, but this is still my journal first and foremost, not a collection of links.)

Subject: Girl Look At That Gangnam Style

So I made a mashup!

I started working on this a couple of days ago, and I just released it today. It's called "Girl Look At That Gangnam Style" and mashes up these two songs:

  • Gangnam Style, by PSY
  • Sexy And I Know It, by LMFAO (the song that inspired this xkcd comic)
I think that the finished result (direct download link) sounds pretty good, myself. What do you guys think?
