Song of the Week #4

This week was rather busy for me as I am getting ready for a bbq/potluck at my house tomorrow. I have been cleaning house, buying sodas, making sure we have enough utensils, and so on. Hopefully everything will be chill and laid back. DJ Earworm’s mashup “No More Gas” appears on Best of Bootie 2008, a free album of mashup songs that’s released every year by BootieSF. This is definitely one of my all-time favorite mashups. A mashup is basically a mix of several different songs, the number of which may vary from 2-3 to 19 or more different pieces of music from various artists mashed together. It could be a hook and a chorus from one artist, a verse or two from another artist, mixed with the music from yet another artist. Sometimes they’re great and sometimes they’re not. If you’re new to mashups, I’d suggest that you check out bootiemashup.com for a good round-up of new stuff and then hit up YouTube for more awesome mashup tracks from artists like Earworm, Djs from Mars, Mashup Germany, The Kleptones, Party Ben, The Hood Internet, and many others.

Until next Friday 😉
