DJ Schmolli vs. the Johnny Cash & His All-Star Band - God’s Gonna Cut You Down
I can’t decide whether this one is going to gain or lose followers for themusic, so I’m just going with it and hope for the best. Yesterday I saw the following exchange on Twitter:
povertyjetset: listening to Sigur Ros Vs. Mobb Deep - Shook (Emancipator Mash Up) http://hypem.com/track/803842
jimshreds: @povertyjetset what’s next mashing up johnny cash?
povertyjetset: @jimshreds it’s really not bad! but yeah, I hear you. some things are sacred. lulz
As anyone who’s checked out my last.fm stats knows, I (and my 4 year old daughter) have a healthy obsession with Johnny Cash…but it’s a good question: can the awesome power that is Johnny Cash come through a mashup?
What if, for example, the mashup has the man in black singing over a riff created from Led Zeppelin, the Beastie Boys, Ted Nugent, and the Beatles? I mean, if you’re going to attack the sacred, why not go all the way, right?
Judge for yourselves, and happy Friday, all.
