Night Owl Chat – Mash Ups!

Our nightly wind-down from the day’s annoyances.

From Urban Dictionary:

mash up:

v. To take elements of two or more pre-existing pieces of music and combine them to make a new song.
n. A song comprised of elements of two or more pre-existing pieces of music.

In the early and mid oughts, mash ups were the new, creative frontier. Danger Mouse made his name by taking The Beatles’ “White Album” and Jay-Z’s “Black Album” and creating the “Grey Album”. He was given a cease and desist order by Apple Records, but he created the piece at a time when file sharing had exploded, so it’s quite easy to get access to the album. (Yes, I have it, and it’s SPECTACULAR.)

Mash ups are still a font of creativity, where mixers take disparate songs, find commonalities in them, and create something new.

So, for tonight’s night owl musical thread, mash ups!
