Possibly the Greatest Mashup of All Time!

Today’s Song of the Day is arguably one of the finest Mashups ever created. So what’s a Mashup? Well as defined by Wikipedia a Mashup is;

“a song or composition created by blending two or more pre-recorded songs, usually by overlaying the vocal track of one song seamlessly over the instrumental track of another”.

To make a good Mashup the remix artist has to have good musical chops because as you can imagine a poorly mixed Mashup can become audio soup very quickly . If a Mashup is done well however, it can completely transform a song into something altogether different and fresh.

One of the best lessor-known Mashup artists out there today is DJ Dain (aka Andrew Bowers) an internationally acclaimed, award-winning composer, producer and DJ specializing in Drum ‘n’ Bass, Trip-Hop, and Mashups. This is one Canadian who knows his stuff! He has made several Mashups that are some of my favorite pieces of music to listen to (Check out today’s Monday Mixtape for another DJ Dain track). Today’s song is not new, it’s about a year old but it mashes up three songs that are great to lift any mood; “Don’t Worry Be Happy” by Bobby McFerrin, “I’m Yours” by Jason Miraz, and the amazing medley of “Over the Rainbow”/”What a Wonderful World” by Israel KamakawiwoŹ»ole. Without further ado here it is so you can take a listen for yourself (I hope you add it to your personal collection šŸ˜‰ ). Please send a comment.
