Maybe I’m just too old and neurotic, or perhaps it was that time a 17-year-old, wannabe frat bro dickhead kicked my face while crowd surfing during a Girl Talk gig, but I’m fucking over mash ups. Well, at least I thought I was. Then came along this mashup of Kanye West’s song-of-the-year contender “Black Skinhead” with Depeche Mode’s legendary hit “Personal Jesus” (via Chambaland). It was only a given this would happen, but it was never a guarantee it would sound so refreshing.
To crib from Rock it Out! Blog’s Sami Jarroush, this one’s a legitimate “banger”, and one that actually might push me out into a club, preferably in a suit, only to sneer at people from behind a whiskey sour as it pummels the PA. To be honest, I wouldn’t be surprised if Yeezus himself wasn’t pouting in a corner somewhere for not using the sample. #regrets #streambelow
