christmas mashups

one of my favorite shows: christmas mashups.

you know mashups: take a bit of this song, mix it briliantly with that song, and blend two completely different emotional and musical mashupscontents into one new outrageous song. well this year, the challenge is even greater, as i found some brilliant, creative, outrageous, hilarious, and touching musical christmas mashups.

you'll hear led zeppelin, u2, the beatles, motown classics, and lines like the police classic: "rudolph the red-nosed raindeer, you don't have to put on the red light," and mashups of smokey robinson/jingle bells/queen that will leave you breathless and amazed (and perhaps laughing in the spirit of christmas creativity).

it all started years ago with david bowie/bing crosby which inspired combinations like muse's "madness" mashed with "white christmas," the soon to be classic "don't worry be happy/winter wonderland," and "carol of the bells/papa was a rolling stone." and there's the beatles's "feliz navidad" that you'll swear is better than the original of both songs that are mashed. 

this hour ends with my own mashup of 6 different versions of "carol of the bells."

each combination gets better and better if i do say, which makes this the best show i've ever done. and i do say so.
