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


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

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).
