Ruining the American songbook, one mash-up at a time

1 Feb

While sitting in our hotel in Venice, contemplating whether or not we should pay the 5 euro fee for internet, we stumbled upon Garage Band. Ohmigosh. After spending three too many hours trying to make Adele mixes, we decided to embark upon a mash-up contest. We vowed that by the end of January, we would post our own mash-ups on SOEC and let the readers vote on which one they liked best.

The rules?

-No Adele or David Guetta

-No one is allowed to listen to the mash-up before it is posted. (Elaheh DID NOT follow this. “Whatever, had to share my new hobby with my mom. Not sorry.”)

Disclaimers: At the end of the day, we’re amateur DJs with passions for showtunes, Glee, and Top 40.



DAILY PICKS! Weekly picks? Monthly picks? Sorry we’re academics and have to spend so much time studying/so little time blogging.

-Song: Everything on Ingrid Michaelson’s new CD. Nothing beats The Chain (Live from Webster Hall), but the girl sure can sing. Also we admire her for never wearing contacts. Ever.

-Celebrity Crush: Jack Dorsey, creator of Twitter. If you’re willing to overlook his offensive nose ring, he’s a babe. Update: Investment bankers are out, start-up founders are IN! (excluding Mark Zuckerberg. We’re team Eduardo, but only if he has any resemblance to his portrayer Andrew Garfield)

Also, Selena Gomez and the Scene has an inspiring song we’ve been listening to on repeat:

RIP Heidi and Seal. Another day, another celebrity divorce. Do you believe in life after love?
