tee hee :)
Ever since we presented Stromae last week, I can not stop listening to music that is written in French! The music style that breaks over from Europe is so different, and I absolutely love it. I think it is amazing that even though we can not understand they lyrics of the song (or at least I can’t) that we are still able to connect with it on so many other levels. Here is a song I heard while leaving my hype machine account on all day at work, “Completement fou” by Yelle.
Hope it makes you want to crazy dance, like it does to me!

One of the most amazing parts of music is that everyone can have their own take on it. An artist can take one song and remix it, cover it, sample it, flip it or put it into a mash up, and using the same components make something completely new and different!
A rap song can inspire a rock artist to cover it, such as Bastille’s "What Would You Do" cover, which puts a whole new feel into a track…
Or a DJ can use sample of a classic song, like Pretty Lights did with Etta Jame’s “Something’s Got A Hold of Me” to create Finally Moving, while Avicii used the same sample to create his number one hit Levels!
And those songs in return inspired even more remixes, and covers, and music!!
The list is never ending, and the energy keeps on flowing, and to me its wonderful to see musicians everywhere inspiring one another to embrace their creativity and have their own take on a song.
Today I have featured one of my favorite mashups/remix’s “No Diggity vs Thrift Shop” by one of my favorite DJ’s Kygo. In this mash up, he takes Ed Sheeran’s cover of Blackstreet’s “No Diggity” and Passenger’s cover of Macklemore’s “Thrift Shop”, and creates a whole new track that just makes me want to groove!
Happy friday everyone!!!
This gets me everytime, it basically brings me to tears from laughing so hard.
Maybe I could try to be the human slinky for halloween….
