My Second Mashup:
As I mentioned in an earlier post, my buddy Blake helped me make a mash up of Gene Chandler’s Duke Of Earl and Eric B & Rakim’s Paid in Full after I’d heard a DJ mix the two songs at a party I attended. It was so much fun doing it that we had a go with another two tunes I wanted to put together. I am quite pleased with the result.
Daft Punk - Get Lucky (Radio Edit) [feat. Pharrell Williams & Nile Rodgers]
U2 - Sweetest Thing (c.1987)
The song was reportedly written by Bono as an apology to his wife Ali Hewson for having to work in the studio on her birthday during The Joshua Tree sessions. At Alison’s request, profits from the single went to her favoured charity, Chernobyl Children’s Project International.
