In a manner of speaking, yes.


DJ Mash-ups - Love 'em or loathe 'em, the products of this music genre atom-splicing DJ sub-trend have long since been catching on in the mainstream, and you have to admit some of them are works of genius, especially when the aforementioned 'splicing' stretches to an imaginative, often amusing title.

I meant to start this thread sooner, but I was compelled to do so this morning when I heard Radio 1's Scott Mills playing the latest (presumably official) release: Mousse T ('Horny') vs. The Dandy Warhols, entitled 'Horny As A Dandy'. Okay, not an exceptionally amusing title granted, but the musical combination works exceptionally well.

Some combinations I've stumbled across on a quick 'search' this morning include:

Black Eyed Peas vs Kylie Minogue - 'Just Can't Get You To Shut Up'
Michael Jackson vs. Nirvana - 'Smells Like Billie Jean'
Liberty X vs. Orbital - 'Just A Little Bit Lush'
Eminem vs Shakira - ('Wherever, Whenever' & 'The Real Slim Shady')

...and perhaps the most intriguingly:

Enya vs The Prodigy - ('Orinoco Flow' & 'Smack My Bitch Up') ...allegedly.
I would be very interested to hear that one!


So anyway, you get the idea. Now tell me folks, what are the best 'mash-ups' you've heard? Give me your recommendations now, because my curiosity's destination was 'Piqued', and I've already missed my stop....
