Another Fusion: The Beatles & Marvin Gaye's Coolest Track, Ever

I was at The Party That Must Not Be Named on Wednesday. (First Rule of the Party That Must Not Be Named: Don't talk about The Party That Must Not Be Named.)

I heard this great "cover" of the Beatles' If You Won't See Me (one of my favorites, of course).

It turned out to not be a cover at all, but rather a fusion re-mix. It's a mix of If You Won't See Me and Marvin Gaye's awsomely-cool Got to Give It Up, called You Won't Give It Up, by a DJ called "Voicedude" aka DJ Joel-Steven.

The mix can be heard and downloaded here.

Thanks to Irwin Chusid of WFMU for supplying the CD to the Party Which Must Not Be Named and identifying the track for me.

"Mash-ups" -- that's apparently what the kids are calling them these days -- for the entire Beatles' album Revolver (again, one of my favorites) can be heard here. Right now I'm trying Got to Get You Into the Mood -- Beatles plus Glenn Miller.

I ain't exactly hard-core. So kill me.

Update: Mixing the Beatles and Glenn Miller is a lot like mixing tequilla and Friendly's Fribbles. Crap.

On the other hand, the Beatles plus The Cure seems to work a little better.

Yes, I'm becoming more of a whiny pussy by the moment, but hey, it's got a cool beat.

And a mash-up of Goldfrapp, Norman Greenbaum's Spirit in the Sky, and the Beatles' I Want To Tell You is.... well, it's okay. Alas, it's not as good as any of the other songs it's mashing together.

Mixing The Jam, Beck, and Taxman together is a bit better. Thanks for "Lipstick Dynamite" for suggesting I listen.

Okay, This is Cool: Nancy Sinatra's theme from the James Bond film You Only Live Twice mixed with Tomorrow Never Knows. You younger kids may recognize the You Only Live Twice theme from its sampling on Robbie Williams' Millenium.

Man, I love it when people take my geek obsessions and put them all together into one neat package.
