Today, January 2, 2018, would have been Mom’s 72nd birthday! Happy Birthday, Mommy! To celebrate, I thought I’d treat my readers to something Mom would have really enjoyed – a mash-up!
The very first time I heard a mash-up, which is two or more songs combined in a unique way, was on the radio back in the 1990’s or early otts. It was a combination of Oasis’s Wonderwall and Green Day’s Boulevard of Broken Dreams. I’m not sure what this mash-up is called, perhaps, Wonderwall of Broken Dreams, or maybe something else. Either way, before I even knew there was a Youtube or that one could mash up songs, I thought the Oasis/Green Day mash-up was damned clever. But then the song stopped being played on the radio and time moved on. I haven’t thought of this mash-up in years, probably because I haven’t heard it in years.
A few months ago I was surfing the internet and discovered a Pink Floyd and Bee Gee’s mash-up with video! This mash-up combines The Wall and Stayin’ Alive and is aptly named, Stayin’ Alive in the Wall by Wax Audio. Pretty freakin’ awesome, right?
Once I discovered that song and realized I could listen to it on Youtube, a whole new world of mash-up songs opened up to me! At that time, I decided to wait and put this on my blog in honor of my Mom, so I’ve waited months to share these mash-ups with y’all – and now that day is here!
A couple of my favs are:
The Beatles and Monkees, Last Train to Paperback Writer, and
Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath, A Whole Lotta Sabbath, by Wax Audio
However, my very favorite mash-up and also the one I think Mom would have enjoyed the most is the James Brown/Led Zeppelin mash-up called Whole Lotta Sex Machine. Mom was a huge James Brown fan and she enjoyed the mighty Zep as well. Anyway, I hope y’all enjoy this as much as I do and I think Mom will enjoy this very much up in Heaven. So this is for you, Mom!
And for the rest of my Wayward Friends, crank up the volume and
