Best mashups of all time

Post Fri Aug 05, 2016 4:54 pm

I decided today that it's time to broaden my horizons, so I've decided to embark on a project to compile the best 100 mashups of all time for YouTube. I plan to make it like a countdown using clips of each song rather than the whole mashup, with links to the whole song so people can enjoy and download the ones they like.

Here's where you come in...

I would like to know what YOU consider to be the top 10 mashups of all time. (mashups of others) and what you consider to be your 2 best mashups. Please respond with your list and links (if possible) to where these songs can be found. I want to make sure that the mashup artists get credit for their work, as wel as mention the various artists in the mashups.

My plan is to compile the list and make ready the video this fall (shooting for the end of September.) Who knows, maybe one of your mashups will make the list. :1shocked:

Would be like asking me to name the best songs of all time or pick my favourite genre, it all depends on my mood and purpose for the music and would be all open for criticism, I just couldn't do it :1undecided:

in terms of what they mean to me, I got in to mashups thanks to Robin S, Ryson, Dylan Vasey and StronGerMixes so I guess most of their classics will always draw back memories for me.

It's a highly subjective list. But by asking for the opinions of others I'm hoping to add some objectivity to the project. You, Firth, are assured of having a top-ten candidate. The question is, how close to number one will it be? :1lipsrsealed:

It's just there are soo many good mashups out there, it's really hard for me to highlight just a few (personally I mean, not as a whole - think it's a pretty great idea!)


I had a look on youtube and not all my most listened to on iTunes tracks are on there but here's a selection of the ones that are, hopefully this is useful to you:

My opinion is bases on musical taste not popularity. Not sure if you were looking for youtube only. Some of these link were probably pulled down by now. :1smiley:

and
YITT!

Firth,
This is exactly what I was hoping for. About half of the list you provided was already on my top 100 list, and most of the others I hadn't heard before.

HCD,
Most of the links (especially the HearThis links) didn't work. I recognize some of the titles though. And your two "proudest moments" were both already on my list. :1cool:

As far as the YITT mashup goes, you're not going to believe the coincidence with my new mashup going up today.
