You Love Blow and I Love Gypsy Women

I thought I'd done the last Amy Winehouse mash after I put out the Black to Back mash up album but is another. Unfortunately this was made too late to make it onto the album.

This tunes turns Amy into a bit of a dancefloor babe. I've cut up Crystal Waters' 'Gypsy Woman' instrumental and laid it under Amy's vocals from 'Back to Black'. It's got plenty of bass and a kickin' beat!

Get it here:

You Love Blow and I Love Gypsy Women

Hope you like it - let me know if you do in the usual spots or leave a message.

mARKYbOY's Motown Mashed

Hi Guys

After collating all my Amy Winehouse mashed tunes into one download I thought I'd gather together all my Motown mashes too. These tunes use either instrumentals or acapellas from Motown classics such as The Supremes 'My World is Empty Without You', Jackson 5's 'I'll Be There', Smokey Robinson's 'Tears of a Clown' mashed with contemporary artists such as Jordin Sparks, Leona Lewis, Kanye West and Madonna.

Most of these tunes have been available in the usual places (GYBO, SUSN, ACAS4U, Mashuptown, Mashstix etc) or have been exclusives on Ramdom Thoughts podcast (cheers Scott!).

Click the pic above for a readable tracklist. Download the album here:

Motown Mashed

or download .zip file of individual tracks here:

The album includes a new mash using Dennis Edwards and Seidah Garrett's vocals from the 80's tune 'Don't Look Any Further' and the instrumental from Mary Mary's cross-over gospel hit 'Shackles' - 80's soul fused with 90's gospel!

You can download this here:

Don't Look Beyond the Shackles

Hope you enjoy it guys!

My World is Empty wi' Tattoo Babe


Without wanting to run the risk of being pigeon-holed as a Motown masher - I give you:

My World Is Empty wi'Tattoo Babe

It uses The Supremes instrumental 'My World is Empty Without You' and vocals from American Idol winner, Jordin Sparks 'Tattoo'.

The mix of these vocals and the instrumental put me in mind of an 80's Eurovision tune - not sure why tho' - but don't let that put you off having a listen!

Bob Kissed a Girl and Caused an Exodus

Hey Guys!

A track that just come together in the last couple of hours really! It uses the (overused) instrumetnal from Katy Perry's ' I Kissed a Girl' with vocals from Katy and also from Bob Marley's ' Exodus'. They seem to sit quite nicely - i'm sure you'll let me know otherwise!

Download here:

Bob Kissed a Girl and Caused an Exodus - with Katy Perry vocals

A Letter from the Border

Hi Peeps

A bit of a poppy tune this time 60's pop vs 80's pop. The instrumental is courtesy of Madonna's 'Borderline' with the Marvelettes vocals from 'Please, Mr Postman'.

Download and have a listen here:

A Letter from the Border

Let me know what you think in the usual places.
