Mash-Up Songs

Also known as a remix, mesh, medleys, mash-up, blend, bootleg and bastard pop/rock (according to Wikipedia), most people just know them as mash-up songs.

The movie Pitch Perfect features this style of music. The character Becca makes remixes using several different songs throughout the film, and they sound fantastic. Here’s one example from the movie.

 

Mashups are another way to take a song and make it your own. These are songs that take multiple other songs and put them together in various ways to make it into something else. As with covers and parodies, there are a million and one ways to mash-up a song, and endless styles to do it in.

In my search for mash-up songs and artists, I found a ton of wonderful artists (and I only scratched the surface). Here are a few highlights of the mash-up research.
