    "Mash-Ups": Some Videos Creatively Combining Tracks For Unexpected Results...

    A disclaimer:

    I've become more and more fascinated by this result of today's technology. Look, folk have been doing remixes of tunes for years. Sometimes they work, at other times they fall flat on their face.

    There are purists out there that decry this practice as some sort of musical vandalism. I dunno about that, nor do I care to get into some deep moral debate about the dubious integrity of those involved that create this art form. Honestly, that would lead to a whole big deal about artistic validity.

    If you folk wanna get into that, fine. Yet I'll merely post the videos, if you do not mind, and let the chips fall as they may.

    VJ JAREN The Killers VS. The Clash Somebody Rock Me (4:48)


    The Simpsons vs Star Trek (1:54) OK, it's odd...

    I think the inventiveness behind these mashups is just incredible. (All right, the one with Closer and Spock and Kirk was a bit disturbing, but that may be because I never thought of Kirk and Spock in quite that way.) I found myself being drawn to the ones in which the music was a better match than the videos, for example, the Green Day/Oasis combo, the two Led Zeps and the Simpsons vs. Star Trek. The Green Day/Oasis is my favorite, though I thought the introduction of "Dream On" at the end was a bit superfluous.

    These were a great find, Chef. I sincerely hope you'll post more as you come across them.

    Now that my mind has started to think in a mashups way.

    Gosh Mistere, I love the video portion but I think there are other songs that would lend themselves, to your song, in a more cohesive way. The first one I thought of was No Doubt's "Just A Girl" but I have a feeling that a Van Halen song would also work...maybe "Hear About It Later"?

    OK, sure. You got a capella versions of either of those?
    Actually, I'm looking for a capellas of anything - preferably in Gm.
    I got a new track that needs a vocal and find myself short of singers
    again. Not sure I agree with the "cohesive" comment - it works for me -
    but it is entirely subjective. Thanx for the comment(s).

    PS - also a bit of Midnight Oil in the mix if you can dig it...

    This is just the way my brain works, yet rather than a "singing" vocal (and having to deal with an extra, distracting or possibly superfluous melody, thus the need to fight or shoe-horn it into the mix), have you considered going an altogether different route, using either recorded speeches or perhaps straight poetry? By dispensing with a vocal melody, editing would become a far easier process, as one can literally cut and past sentences or stanzas and not destroy any rhythmic flow inherent to the vocal line.

    The public library offers cds of both, in fact all you'd need to do is go to your local library's website and see what they have to offer. Of course, you could download the stuff as well. I'm not recommending something so obvious as a speech by Kennedy or Churchill, as that has been done before. Yet any dramatic reading will shine in the new context, given heft by music and the combined alchemy of the two.

    Just a suggestion. All the best with the project!

    Keeping in mind that I have absolutely no clue as to how these mashups are done, I suggested those songs because the music and lyrics would work with your piece.

    Chef's suggestion is good and you could also use movie lines.

    Note the use of speeches and movie lines here: (it comes at the 3:00 mark if Axl isn't your cup of tea)

    Trust me, I've sampled everyone and everything.
    Check myspace for a taste. Cornell, Queen, Patsy and the Nuge
    all make appearances and that's just in the first 2 songs. Not exactly
    a Churchill or Neruda in that lot, but I've done that too. I'm on to looking
    for nude vocals 'cause I dig the mash aspect of it - I nick a "Renegade"
    bit that is, imho, fucking beautiful. To borrow from Christina. Again.

    Now, after visiting your myspace, I have a better understanding of what you do. Kind of like a Moby or Fatboy Slim type of vibe. (Sorry I didn't mean to insult if you'd prefer not to be grouped with them.)

    You do it well. I really enjoyed the first track especially.

    My next suggestion, if I'm allowed another one, would be to go with poets.

    My first recommendation is a punk poet, from Manchester, named John Cooper Clarke. There's alot of his rants on YouTube. He has a heavy accent and very percussive quality to his delivery, which might meld well with your music.

    If you've already done it to death, I apologize. I'll shut up now.
