Get On Up, Y’all!

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

Get on up, y’all, and dance!

Happy 2018!
