From the “Why We Love The Internet” file: First, we had [lastfm]Jay-Z[/lastfm] mashed up with [lastfm]Beatles[/lastfm]. Then it was [lastfm]50 Cent[/lastfm] and [lastfm]Queen[/lastfm]. And now…the twee spectacular [lastfm](500) Days of Summer[/lastfm] soundtrack gets the mash-up treatment with none other than [lastfm]Lil Wayne[/lastfm]! Check out the sincerely odd results after the jump!
We all know Weezy, of course: Grammy winner and king of Cash Money Records, currently serving time for “criminal possession of a weapon.”
Most of us know (500) Days of Summer as well: Indie critical darling film from last summer, spawning a soundtrack featuring Zooey Deschanel‘s band [lastfm]She & Him[/lastfm] and songs by [lastfm]Regina Spektor[/lastfm] and [lastfm]the Smiths[/lastfm], among others.
A DJ named My Sick Uncle decided that these two tastes would go well together. And now…
We love you, Internet.
Standout tracks include the above, “Fear Forever” ([lastfm]Lil Wayne[/lastfm]’s verse from [lastfm]Drake[/lastfm]’s “Forever” mixed with “There Goes the Fear” by [lastfm]the Doves[/lastfm]) and “Hero (Oh Oh Oh)” which loops the final moments of [lastfm]Regina Spektor[/lastfm]’s “Hero” with Weezy’s “Want You.”
Who else do you want to see mashed up? How about [lastfm]Lady Gaga[/lastfm] and [lastfm]Madonna[/lastfm]?
