I’ve always loved the groovy little dance/shuffle that Rick Astley does during this song, but adding the “grunge” essence of Nirvana as accompaniment makes it even more endearing, and gives it a much-needed edge.
While no amount of tinkering and remixing could ever improve on the real thing, “Mashup genius” dj BC has made available for download a retooled version of David Bowie’s classic ‘70s Glam opus, Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars. According to BC, the project promises to be “remixed, mashed-up and spaced-out, with bootleg mixes and mashups from myself, ATOM, A plus D (Bootie), World Famous Audio Hacker, and ToToM. Videos from VJ Brewski and AJ ‘Hatperson’ Mazur. (You may remember AJ as the genius behind the now legendary ‘Cooking By The Book’ video.) Art by the very talented Shana B. This record has been in the works since ‘Wu Orleans’ but the arrival of my daughter and some ‘official’ releases distracted me, and drove me to seek help completing it. And I am glad I did. A+D’s MGMT mashup and ATOM’s ‘Star Man’ remix are nothing short of genius.”
I’ve been very much looking forward to the upcoming release of director Guillermo Del Toro’sHellboy II and nothing got me more excited just now than seeing this awesome Mr. Potatohead Hellboy mash up! I want to own it!
