Mashstix Monthly Challenge #21 - Movie-Mash
The have been posted some really cool soundtrack based tracks here. And I would really like to hear more of them.
So for this challenge you have to use at least one source from a movie soundtrack or TV theme song. No computer games please.
There should be plenty of tracks to choose from. In case you need some names check out this list on wikipedia

Challenge-Specific Rule:
  • Create a mash with at least one source from a movie soundtrack or TV theme song.

The Usual Rules:
  • On the first, second, third, fourth, or fifth of every month, the (newly entitled) Emperor of MashStix posts a new thread containing details of the challenge.
  • Challenge tunes are to be posted in this thread using the players in the same way as you would on the main mashstix board, including details of the tracks used (see the How to post thread).
  • New tunes only please - don't just re-post old material.
  • You have until around the 21st of the month to submit your entry. After that, a poll will be set up on the thread. If there's more than 10 entries (as if :1rolleyes: ), we'll work out another way of voting.
  • The winner will be announced on the last day of the month.
  • All ties will be settled by the Emperor.
  • After that, all challengers can post their entries on the "submit mashups" board (if you think they're up to scratch that is!)
  • The winner's track will be frontpaged, unless asked otherwise by the winner.
  • The winner will attain limitless glory for all eternity, and the right (or obligation, if you like), to set the new challenge on or around the first, second, third, fourth or fifth of the new month.

It's decided! Her are all the entries (in order of votes):

I've been struggling to come up with viable ideas, but this theme is right up my alley. "Please Don't Fire Me" would have been perfect for this!

I can't make any promises yet, but I've already started vetting potential matches for a few movie instrumentals.

We all would be very happy to welcome you in this little, but very cozy "sub-community" of challenge-takers.

The good thing is: most soundtracks or theme songs are already instrumentals :1wink:

I've always used well-known songs from movies and TV shows, so the theme for this contest is like a dream come true for me. I considered songs from Life Of Pi, The Artist and Slumdog Millionaire, but until a few days ago, The Pink Panther wasn't even on my list.

And then...BOOM. Like lightning, this idea struck out of nowhere and I laughed my head off. You know the rest.

Good luck to all the entrants!
