Here it is! My last Mashup of 2012!
It's a great responsibility to create a "end of the year" mashup, so... lets do it with two songs from the start of a decade (1970), when the words of order were "Sex, Drugs and Rock n' Roll"!

The Doors. Riders On The Storm. One of the most known songs from one of the most known bands in the world. The song was released in 1970 and it was featured in the album LA Woman in 1971.

According to the band, it was inspired by the song "Riders in the Sky: A Cowboy Legend."
And now sings Santana. And plays the guitar like there was no tomorrow. "Black Magic Woman" is a song written by Peter Green that first appeared as a Fleetwood Mac single in various countries in 1968. In 1970, it became a classic hit by Santana, appearing on their Abraxas album, becoming more closely associated with Santana than Fleetwood Mac.
The song became one of Santana's staples and one of their biggest hits.

29-12-2012 update: The mashup has now been featured on a music page on facebook. Check it out please!

A friend of mine said "Great song, rock vs. rock!" :D

Fuck Pony vs. Smokey Robinson & The Miracles - Always Jingle Bells



Sources:
  • Acapella: Smokey Robinson & The Miracles - Jingle Bells
  • Instrumental: Fuck Pony - Always Sunday

Info:


Merry Christmas! Or... Merry X-Mash!!!


Minimal House music and Soul music together... does it make a good combination?

Yes it does!

Fuck Pony is a project led by Berlin-based producer Jay Haze. The material released under this name is focused toward exploring the outer limits of house music, but is just as much about having fun and letting musical influences flow throughout his compositions.

"Always Sunday" was released in 2009 and its part of the CD "Let The Love Flow".
It wouldn't be a Christmas song without Jingle Bells. This time, by Smokey Robinson & The Miracles.
Taken from the 1968's album "Merry Christmas from Motown" which includes tracks by the Temptations, Diana Ross & the Supremes, the Jackson 5, Smokey Robinson & the Miracles and Stevie Wonder.
While the main focus is on traditional material like "Ave Maria", "Christmas Everyday" and "Silent Night", that "Jingle Bells" version holds up well.
This is perfect combination for any Xmas get together.

Village People vs. Bob Seger - Old Time YMCA (Rudec & Voicedude Mashup)

  • Acapella:  Village People - YMCA
  • Instrumental:  Bob Seger - Old Time Rock n' Roll

Download link: 
Info: Voicedude is the one to be credited for the idea (he thought of it first in 2010) and the difference in my version is that I've just made a little arrangement in the vocals and instrumental structure so it's not so long as his song... 
This is a real classic. Both songs from 1978! Wow, I'm feeling nostalgic...
According to our friends at Wikipedia: "The song remains popular and is played at many sporting events in the U.S. and Europe. It is frequently played during breaks in the action at sporting events with crowds using the dance as an opportunity to stretch. Moreover, the song also remains particularly popular due to its status as a disco classic and gay anthem, even among listeners who are otherwise uninvolved in disco or gay culture. It is also known to be a favorite at weddings and school dances. A popular dance in which the arms are used to spell out the four letters of the song's title may have much to do with this. "Y.M.C.A." appeared as Space Shuttle Wakeup call on mission STS-106, on day 11. In 2009, "Y.M.C.A." was entered into the Guinness World Book of Records when over 44,000 people danced to the song with Village People singing live at the Sun Bowl game in Texas. "Y.M.C.A." is number 7 on VH1's list of The 100 Greatest Dance Songs of the 20th Century."
And then there's Old Time Rock n' Roll. It was also listed as one of the Songs of the Century in 2001. It was re-released in 1983 after its inclusion in the film Risky Business and reached number 48 on the Billboard singles chart. The song remains a staple on classic rock radio.

Tears For Fears vs. The Knife - Shout



Sources:
  • Tears For Fears - Shout (Acapella)
  • The Knife - Silent Shout (Instrumental)

Info:
"Silent Shout" is the first single and title track from the album with the same name, by the Swedish electronic duo The Knife. The song was released in 2006. It was described as a "brooding, bassy, dance-fuelled electronic music"  that is "pure evil."
On the other hand we have a 1984 song by the British band Tears for Fears. "Shout" is by far the most abundantly remixed song in the Tears for Fears catalog, with at least fifteen different versions of it having been officially released under the band's name.
Still, here is another remix, bootleg, or if you prefer, Mashup.

The Doors vs. Green Day - Roadhouse Holiday Blues



Sources: 
  • The Doors - Roadhouse Blues (Acapella)
  • Green Day - Holiday (Instrumental)

Info:
"Holiday" was released in 2004. The american Punk Rock band "Green Day" released this song in the album "Boulevard of Broken Dreams".
As a personal note, this is by far one of their greatest works.
It fits together with "Roadhouse Blues", a Blues Rock song recorded by the american Rock band "The Doors" in 1970. My favorite song from the great voice of Jim Morrison.
So, 34 years apart here they are together in one great mashup.

Kiss vs. Irene Cara - Fame Was Made For Lovin You


Download

Sources:
  • Kiss - I Was Made For Lovin You (Acapella)
  • Irene Cara - Fame (Instrumental)

Info:
The most funny thing I can think about is the reactions to this song when I play it live, because nobody thinks about it as being even possible to mashup together!
"I Was Made for Lovin' You" was originally released in 1979, on the album Dynasty by Kiss. It was released as the A-side of their first single from the album.
"Fame" is a Pop song that was released in 1980, and achieved chart success as the theme song to the Fame film and TV series. The song was performed by Irene Cara, who played the role of Coco Hernandez in the original movie. It won the Academy Award for Best Original Song in 1980, and the Golden Globe Award for the same.
The tune was later used as the theme song for the Fame television series, which aired from 1982 to 1987. It was also used in other TV shows related to Fame.

Mashup (music) Definition

mashup or bootleg (also meshmash upmash-upblend and bastard pop/rock) 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 the extent that such works are "transformative" of original content, they may find protection from copyright claims under the "fair use" doctrine of copyright law.

Mashups are known by a number of different names:
  • Bootlegs (mostly in Europe)
  • Boots (but not Booty which is a branch of Electro)
  • Mash-ups
  • Mashed hits
  • Smashups (or Smash-Ups)
  • Bastard pop (as in the combined songs are unofficial; this term is rarely used any more)
  • Blends
  • Cutups (or cut ups, a term originally coined by William S. Burroughs to describe some of his literary experiments that involved literally "cutting up" different texts and rearranging the pieces to create a new piece.)
  • Powermixing (usually the pace has to be speeded up to allow for more song to be played and thus cannot play any single blend for the full length of the song)
  • Crossovers, but it is in a form of mashup, or version vs. version.
In addition, more traditional terms such as "edits" or (unauthorized) "remixes" are favored by many "bootleggers" (also known as 'leggers).
