For this mashup, we get a little Gotye and New Order mix. Brought to you by Richard Challen, we have the song “Some Monday That I Used To Know.”
I will admit, right off the bat, I was not a fan of this mashup. I thought the music was too repetitive, boring, and honestly wasn’t going to work together. But, I stuck with it. Now, I think its awesome.
For those who are wondering which of the above to listen to, I would highly suggest the video. There is some amazing editing going on here. I really like how the beat and the video move together, it is definitely a smart way to catch the attention of the viewer.
What I truly find great about this mashup is that is takes the new and the old and brings them together. Too often everyone wants to put the top songs together and they think that will get them a huge following. Honestly, I got into mashups looking to hear the new and the old combined into one. I think that those who are loyal to that “design” will be the fastest growing, with the most loyal fan base.
If I had to critique anything about the song, I would say get a catchy beginning. It is all about the first 15 seconds. If you can’t sell someone a song by the time the first chord progression is finished, you will lose them forever. For an A+B mashup, I am happy with what I got to hear. This mashup I can see being played at some…hipster-esque locations mainly because it just has a feel that I think most people wouldn’t be too comfortable with in the club.
