We in the Jingaling household love our mashups. (The Queen of Jingaling is especially fond of the Bootie….) For several years, djBC has been coordinating a compilation of Christmas mashups called Santastic.
It’s a difficult artform—getting the right mix of songs, making them familiar enough yet new enough to stand up to repeated listenings. But I think this music works best as party music and there are lots of great treats here on Santastic V: Snow Man!.
Some of my favorites so far: Rudolph (You Don’t Have to Put On The Red Light), Swing The Boot and Motown Christmas.
But the highlight has to be Voicedude‘s mashup of The Jackson 5’s Santa Claus is Coming to Town with the now infamous dirty-word-song-of-the year from Cee Lo Green. This will be the hit of many a Christmas bash this year. You can hear the “Radio Edit” version below. (The compilation includes this version, along with the dirty and a squeaky clean version.)
LISTEN TO CEE LO GREEN vs. THE JACKSON 5: FORGET YOU, SANTA!
