Someone sent me this YouTube video of Rutgers Shockwave, an all-female acapella group performing my Madonna/Lady GaGa mashup, “Just Dance Into the Groove.” It’s kinda Glee-esque and pretty damn fun to watch.
I am a huge Alanis Morissette fan, but it is rare to have an opportunity to remix or mash her songs up because she rarely releases acapellas or instrumentals. When she parodied The Black Eyed Peas in 2007, I was inspired to make this mash up combining the two versions. It was released as a Bootie exclusive on their April 2007 Top 10 list.
In case you were living under a rock in 2007, here’s Alanis’ classic viral video.
I made it in 2005 after buying a used 12″ of Cameo’s “Word Up” at Amoeba. I began spinning the instrumental and wondered what would fit with it — I played the “Hollaback Girl” acapella and it sounded pretty cool. So I decided to do a proper mashup. Sometimes it’s easy like that.
Sibley is one to watch. A Bay Area native, she’s now working hard in L.A. launching her music career with legendary producer Marc Kinchen. “Donuts” is a catchy, sweet pop song that’ll have you on a run to Krispy Kreme in no time.
“I eat donuts man, I eat donuts. I eat donuts man, I eat donuts. Your car, your cash, your ice, don’t want it. Donuts man, I eat donuts.” Word!
Check out the house mashup I made with Mason/Princess Superstar’s “Perfect [Exceeder].”
