    I heard some local radio DJs talking about this on the way to work today. I was really hoping it was some sort of joke, then they played a sample and a piece of me died. Leave NIN’s stuff alone; it’s perfection as it is.

    Who the hell is Carly Rae?

  4. xero says:

    anyone else curious if it works the other way round with call me maybe’s lyrics and head like a holes tune?

    or is that just me?

    Not Sure if Blasphemy or tit-elating

    It’s okay…you pretty much know how it’s going to sound after the first 15 seconds or so.

    My favourite mashups are always the ones that contain vocals from both songs–I find they’re the most satisfying.

  7. Ivan says:

    Also, a guy who worked with NIN actually mixed Call Me Maybe:

    “I was trying to get the same feel in ‘Call Me Maybe’ as in a Nine Inch Nails song, making sure it had a pop sensibility, but with people not even noticing how aggressive the kick drum is.”

    Please erase this from my memory.

    This has got to be the best thing I’ve heard in a while. It just works so perfectly!

    I never asked for this.

    I love mash-ups when they are done correctly. this will be stuck in my head for a while.
