Some are ingenius – here’s a brilliant recap of 2012’s best pop songs in a wonderful mash up

Could we attempt a literary mash up here?

Simon and Garfunkel- Scarborough fair

The original English ballad Scarborough Fair dates back to the Middle Ages and borrowed lyrics and themes from the Scottish ballad The Elfin Knight and another English ballad Riddles Wisely Expounded, the line ‘parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme’ appears in Riddles Wisely Expounded and dates back at least to 1450. Simon & Garfunkle then set it in counterpoint to Canticle which in turn was a rework of an earlier Paul Simon song The Side of A Hill. So I guess that this could be a mash up of a mash up of a mash up.

The White Panda
Wick It the Instigator

And one of my favorite mash-ups, The Grey Album its The Beatles White Album mashed up with Jay-Z’s Black Album. I actually cant stand Jay-Z normally but the way Danger Mouse did this mashup and sped up the vocals a bit it sound soooooo much better IMO.
