Benny the Jukebox’s ’90s Megamix

Our own Chris Hardwick is a melodica player of some note, but can he play a medley of club and Europop hits of the ’90s in one neatly segued medley like this guy? Hear Benny the Jukebox play C&C Music Factory, 2 Unlimited, Haddaway, Eiffel 65, “Barbie Girl,” the Macarena, “Baby Got Back,” “We Like to Party,” Ace of Base, and many more you may or may not remember or like, closing with that stadium anthem by Zombie Nation, “Kernkraft 400.”

And, hey, he’s been on the Nerdist Podcast. He’s Benny from Axis of Awesome. He says he can play any requests and challenges, because if he’s heard it, he claims, he can play it: try him at

    Great mix, thanks for posting!

    I wonder how long it took him to get it right.
    Very impressive.

    If you put on closed captioning, it will list the song and artist for every bit of this remix.

    Very impressive effort. I think I would have passed out, not to mention I can’t play the melodica….
