Not everything here is older than dirt. Me, perhaps, but not all the music.
I’ve really enjoyed some of the mashups I’ve found while surfing through the music blogs over the past year or so. Take one song, lay it over another and start slicing, dicing and chopping.
I came across Tom Compagnoni’s work last year when I read somewhere about “Imagine This,” an anti-war piece that mashes John Lennon, the Beatles and George W. Bush. Highly recommended, and available on Tom’s web site, Wax Audio.
Tom, who’s from Australia, describes these new mashups as “lighthearted.” Indeed.
Can you imagine mashing AC/DC’s “Thunderstruck” and Ray Parker Jr.’s “Ghostbusters?” Didn’t think so. Makes me smile every time I hear it.
There’s more where this came from, so follow the links above to Tom’s sites.
