I've been on a mash-up kick lately, having worn out the mp3s of the new Girl Talk album and playing the hell out of DJ Hero. My wrists are sore from the game, and my ears have finally begun enjoying the Girl Talk album despite my initial disappointment. One of my favorite parts? The use of "Our House" by Madness.
Last night I saw a Verizon ad that mashed-up "Our House" with "Jingle Bells." I have happily managed to avoid holiday music for the most part this season, but it was kind of awesome.
I used to be more interested in commercials than actual programming. It's nice to see that some old habits still die hard.
