MashUp March: Tequila Lip Gloss

For the rest of March, I’ll be posting some of the choicest mashup songs I can find. There are many sub-genres of mashup and just as many artists. A good mashup takes music sampling to its logical conclusion: the best pieces of many songs getting it on in a frantic musical orgy. Some mashups are fun because they play with the recognizability of a classic (or terrible) song. Others are fun because you have no idea what the original music could possibly be; the mashup becomes the equivalent of a collage or an abstract painting.

Today’s track is an example of A vs B mashup, where two (or more) very recognizable and largely unedited hooks from songs are played side by side. When done well, it doesn’t sound like a DJ mashup at all, but an intentional crossover between two seemingly incompatible artists.
