What are Mash-Up Songs?
These types of songs are another way to take a song and make it your own. To take something that’s already in existence and create something entirely new with the artist’s own creative liberties. These are songs that take multiple other songs and put them together in various ways to make them into something else entirely. 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. Comment below your favorite Mash-Up artists!
