March’s Music Mindblower

Shake ya bones!

Although I am pretty sure I am way behind on this bandwagon, I am officially naming March’s Music Mindblower as Girl Talk’s “All Day” master-mix.  This 71 minute mash-up of rock, rap, Motown, R&B, country, and everything in between solidifies my love for a great remix.  While the entire 71 minutes can be broken down into 12 separate tracks, it is best listened to as a completely fluid creation.  For each track, Girl Talk almost effortlessly lays down sample on top of sample to create a polished product that leaves you dancing in your seat while scratching your head and saying, “How the hell did he think of putting those tracks together?”  For example, the first track, titled “Oh No” is a tapestry of 22 different songs ranging from Black Sabbath’s “War Pigs” to Jay-Z and Alicia Keys “Empire State of Mind“.  The sixth track, “On and On“, starts with James Brown’s “Funky Drummer” and King Floyd’s “Groove Me” sandwiched in between slices of Cream’s “Sunshine of Your Love” and Notorious B.I.G’s “Nasty Boy“.  Seriously?  While I could live without all of the explicit lyrics, Girl Talk makes up for all of that by bringing musical genres together in a way just makes your day better.  Do yourself a favor and check it out.  Hopefully I am not the last person on earth to have experienced this masterpiece.  For a little extra bonus, check out the Mashup Breakdown to see the arrangement of the samples in each track.  This took someone some serious time.  Enjoy!
