Welcome to the JAM; or, the Majesty of the Mashup
« on: November 19, 2012, 12:15:54 AM »
So, does anyone else get a kick out of the Majesty genre? One particular popular song I get a kick out of when mashed is the "Space Jam" main theme with other songs. A lot of the times it comes out as utter garbage and looses any catchy or comedic value that the author may have aimed for....but there are those rare moments when it comes out really, really catchy. One example is this:

Slamba Yetu
It came off really well--even the composer (Chris Tin) had something to say about (where I first heard about this track from).

Fountain of Slam
This mashup (Fountain of Dreams [Melee]) sounds so inappropriate that it gives off a a comedic effect for me.

Granted, I know I only focused on one mashup, but there's a gold mine worth of impressive mashups that I think really add an extra flavor to both songs when they are crammed together. Sometimes it's sweet, other times bitter.

Post some of your favorite mashes if you know some off the top of your head.

Here's one of my favorites:

Cheetahmen II + Phoenix Wright

Another Space Jam themed one. One of my best friends turned me on to this one:

Battle for Everyone's Slams

Next PW game needs to be riddled with Cheetahmen references. So awesome.

Slamsionate Rhythm - Quad City DJs vs Kenji Ito

As a massive fan of the music of Romancing SaGa, this is the best thing ever.

That vs Kenji Ito was an odd mashup that I never thought would work, but was floored when it did.

Barkley's Bizarre Adventure - Quad City DJs vs TOMMY
Super Space Jam 64
Gerudo Barkley - Quad City DJs vs Nintendo

Not sure if I like the Quad City Mashup...
or waiting for the image change when the beat drops...

EDIT: Going to add another mashup right here:  Bobby Brown vs Sonic - Every Little Step(Spring Yard Zone remix)
                                                                       Michael Jackson - Smooth Criminal(Icecap Zone remix)
                                                                       Michael Jackson - Smooth Criminal(Flying Battery Zone remix)
                                                                     
And this one is my favorite: 
チーターマンIIとSmooth Criminalがすごく合う - The narrative to go with the music is another plus in my book (Also, seems I was top commenter? That was out of nowhere.)
