As far as listening to music goes I’ve been off of the radio due to the constant loop of mediocre songs and the endless commercials. Don’t get me wrong I love pop music but I like to have control over what’s going through my speakers. Instead of the radio I’ve become a really big fan of Spoitfy, which is a great application you can use to listen to all of your favorite songs without spending a dime. This summer, however, I’ve been slowly but surely moving away from Spotify as well. Where have I gone, musically? To mash-ups, of course! This is not by any means the first time I posted about mash-ups, but it is the first playlist I’m posting that consists nothing but mash-ups. What can I say? I can’t get enough of them! The following is the current list of songs I’ve been jamming out to this summer:
Lana Del Rey vs. Selena Gomez – Come & Get It At The Races
Marina & The Diamonds vs. Panic! At the Disco – I Write Sins Not Tragedies vs. Radioactive
Taylor Swift vs. Marina & The Diamonds – I Knew You Were A Bubblegum Bitch
One Republic vs. Lana Del Rey – Counting Stars vs. Summertime Sadness
Lana Del Rey vs. Imagine Dragons – It’s Time For Summertime Sadness
Zedd vs. Bastille – Stay The Night vs. Pompeii
My favorite tracks on this playlist are Come and Get It at the Races, I Write Sins Not Tragedies vs. Radioactive, and Stay The Night vs. Pompeii. As you can see there’s a lot of Lana Del Rey on this list, as well. I really like her voice and her vibe, but her original music is a bit slow for me. When you slap her voice on a pop track I can listen to her all day! Mash-ups are so much fun and there’s an endless supply of new ways to hear your favorite songs as well as the latest radio hits.
