Mashed Up: Music, Technology, and the Rise of Configurable Culture

Web Watch has covered music mashups before, but here’s a slightly different take for your amusement:  what happens when you SING THE LYRICS OF ONE SONG TO THE MELODY OF ANOTHER?  That what ROB BRYDON and others do here on I’M SORRY I HAVEN’T A CLUE.

It’s almost the same as HOW TO WRITE THE PERFECT POP SONG, where you can use the same four chords to cover any number of different songs.  Perhaps all you really need to do is take a listen:

  • IKLEY MOOR BA TAT to the tune of HOUSE OF THE RISING SUN
  • KUNG FU FIGHTING to the tune of SCARBOROUGH FAIRE
  • SEXUAL HEALING to the tune of TWO LITTLE BOYS
  • CHRISTOPHER ROBIN IS SAYING HIS PRAYERS to the tune of ONE OF THOSE SONGS

  • WHITER SHADE OF PALE to the tune of THE MUPPET SHOW
  • GIRLFRIEND IN A COMA to the tune of TIPTOE THROUGH THE TULIPS
  • THEME TO JIM’LL FIX IT to the tune of MAD WORLD
  • LDN to the tune of MY GRANDFATHER’S CLOCK
  • PSYCHO KILLER to the tune of RULER OF THE QUEEN’S NAVY
  • ANARCHY IN THE UK to the tune of JUST WHEN I NEEDED YOU MOST
  • THE UGLY DUCKLING to the tune of WITHOUT YOU

  • KILLING ME SOFTLY WITH HIS SONG to the tune of BARE NECESSITIES

  • ROXANNE to the tune of TIPTOE THROUGH THE TULIPS
  • I WANNA BE LIKE YOU to the tune of  THEME FROM SWAN LAKE
  • THEME TO THE FLINTSTONES to the tune of MY WAY
