Mashup Monday: ‘Mr. Brightside’ vs. Zedd vs. Magic!

Mashup Monday: ‘Mr. Brightside’ vs. Zedd vs. Magic!

Hey dudes! So going forward we are going to start bringing you mashups every monday for our Music Geek Track Of The Day slot so that you can, in the words of our funky savior, get up offa that thang and dance til you feel better! Consider Mashup Mondays your weekly dose of unfettered pop/dance fun that will make you move in ways that would embarrass your parents and your children at the same. damn. time.

To start things off, I want to post this Killers/Magic! mashup from DJ Morgoth which turns one of the most famous lovelorn songs of the 2000’s (remember when hackers made “Mr Brightside” win that Grantland bracket in 2013?) into a reggae-inflected dose of optimism that makes these two tonally disparate songs sound perfectly seamless and impossibly upbeat. While listening to this, I encourage you to think of Brandon Flowers smiling very alarmingly and insanely throughout the original music video from Hot Fuss.

Check out the mashup below and let us know if you’re feeling Mashup Mondays!
