Nine Offbeat, Unlikely, Or Simply Awesome Song Mashups

Since the dawn of the DJ, mashups have become an increasing part of music culture. Artists like Gregg “Girl Talk” Gillis have popularized the party mix mashup, throwing together song upon songs to create full albums worth of mashed up material. And full mashup albums like Danger Mouse’s The Grey Album, a mix between The Beatles’ The White Album and Jay-Z’s The Black Album, have proven surprisingly cohesive.

Often, the best mashups are the most surprising. Two songs with nothing in common come together to form a new something great. We picked several of our favorite offbeat, unlikely, or just plain awesome mashups.
