Top 5 mashups of 2009

Top 5 mashups of 2009

I love music and really like good mashups. It had been a while since I listened to some mashups so I decided to browse for some. I came across a lot of bad ones and some good ones that made me go Tjongolongo!


I hope the artists themselves are also looking at what others are creating with their music, would be nice to see some real mashups, like Jay-Z and Linkin Park did creating an entire album with mashups. I like that type of collaboration. Besides expanding their musical repertoire, they’re also doing some cross marketing and may end up with new fans!

Here’s my top 5 of Mashups:

1. Chasing Cars That Way

Snow Patrol – Chasing Cars vs Backstreet Boys – I Want It That Way

2. Complicated Sex On Fire

Kings Of Leon – Sex on Fire vs Avril Lavigne – Complicated

3. Poker Hump

Lady Gaga – Pokerface vs. Fergie – My Humps

4. Circus Jam

Britney Spears – Circus vs Michael Jackson – Jam

5. Close Insomnia

Ne-Yo – Closer vs. Craig David – Insomnia

And my bonus track a complete mashup of the top 25 Hits of 2009 according to the US Billboard.
