like drinking "café con leche" with chili.


PD: Amazing as both songs structures fit.

Sorry, geht gar nicht. Also überhaupt gar nie nicht. Brrr.

Stefan Rubner, 2009-07-22

wie geil ist das denn!

If Kurt Cobain would not be depressed by his own nature he surely would become it when being mixed with Rick Ass-hley =)

The download goes fast though!

I wonder how long this will stay online (till some nasty lawyer find it).

Adalbert Duda, 2009-07-23

Oh gosh... this is blasphemy!!! No, actually, this is pretty cool stuff. It shows that some basically good material can be totally screwed up with a bad arrangement and/or a bad video performance.

@Alex, I seriously doubt that the originals match this well. But the Acapella can be sliced and rearranged without the listener noticing really, I guess. I envision this to be quite some work, but a dedicated and skilled DJ can certainly do it.

Me like but... who has so much time for doing this crap :))?

Ingo Seifert, 2009-07-23

"Wir ruinieren Deine Lieblingslieder!" - mission accomplished.
Aber echt witzig und ganz gut gemacht.

Philipp Neata, 2009-07-23

Maybe somebody who makes his living as a DJ & Mashup Producer might find the time to do stuff like this. Oops, sorry.
