Have you heard Girl Talk yet?

Asked by kevbo (25644points) January 19th, 2009

Sorry if I’m late to the party. It’s like a mashup of a Time/Life CD collection informercial of your favorite hits from the 70s/80s/90s and hardcore gangsta rap. Trippy… and brilliant because the old music sucks you in (if you are an old person).

I just started listening to Girl Talk. Frankly, I think its awesome to take some “tired” new songs and mash them with some “oldies” (can’t believe I’m calling some of those songs oldies).

Nice. I had to get my bro-in-law to burn me a CD, because I ‘m too old couldn’t figure out how to get to that page.

Wow. Push It mashed with Smells Like Teen Spirit. This is crack music.

@nikipedia YES! that randomly pops into my head so often.

Feed the Animals was a great cd. The amazing thing is i hate a lot of those original songs, yet girltalk has the ability to make the once crap music into pure awesomeness lol.

Yeah, he’s insane!
I wonder how long it takes for him to make just one of those amazing mashups.

I had not heard of this fellow. Cool. I thought people stopped the mashups thing after Soulwax / 2 Many DJs.

FYI, there was a recent review of Girl Talk in the New York Times.

Girl Talk has helped shed light on that genre of music, which is definitely a noble thing. I hope a lot of of similar music gets some attention because of people raving about Girl Talk.

Good and short interview with Girl Talk – link

ps – scroll to the bottom. most of that link is an article about ethics of music sharing etc

It’s crazy how popular Girl Talk has suddenly gotten. I’m a huge fan of his work. He performed at my school earlier this year. It was awesome.
