List: my favorite mashups

For those of you living under a rock, a mashup is when someone takes two songs and combines them into one cohesive, new song. The whole is greater than the sum of the parts, however, because the mixing of the two songs should just blend together like they were meant to be and it makes a greater track than either of the original. Also, a clever blending of the titles is necessary. Sometimes I feel like amateur DJs just lay the vocals of one song over the instrumental of the other track and HOPE they go together. Not good enough. I’ve been a mashup junkie for years, and here are several of my favorites. Remember, right-click and save, or listen to them right from this page.
