Justification of the Genre
So I haven't been that big of a fan of mashups. (The practice of putting two songs together, essentially playing them together at the same time to create a unique third song.) Not that I don't think the theory's cool, or that the folks who do it are talented. I think it's a fun concept and takes skill to make the pitches & meteres match. They just didn't do anything for me. You like chocolate, I like vanilla: that's cool.
But then, Sean points out a mashup of "Video Killed the Radio Star" and "Chariots of Fire." And now I believe. At least for this one song, I am a fan!
1000 Spoons is the mashup genius behind it. You can listen here.
