Just another reason to wish I was at Coachella instead of rotting beneath a pile of exams and unwanted April snow.
Last night Phoenix took the stage, and as if they weren’t amazing enough on their own, they decided to bring an equally amazing friend along with them. R. Kelly joined the band during their encore for an INSANE mash-up of their respective biggest hits, “1901″ and “Ignition: Remix.”
The quality may not be great, but if I close my eyes and think hard enough, I’m in the front row dancing the night away to the crazy-catchy tune.
Watch the video and be prepared to be floored by the unexpectedly brilliant combination:
While silly cat videos and epic fails have their LOL moments, many videos on the internet have a whole other side that’s magical and inspiring. Imagine a wakeboarder doing a flawless midair jump in slow motion with the soft waves rolling behind him. Dancers strapped in LED lights doing parkour through a night market. Two adorable twin babies nodding their heads to their dad’s guitar. This compilation mashes together the very best of the internet from 2012 and it makes me want to take up some extreme sport and be all badass.
Just because it’s 2013 doesn’t mean we still can’t celebrate the best of last year!! Fail Army released a hilarious compilation of the best worst fails of the year for your viewing displeasure.
Remember these doozies?
Here’s what happens when you put the Power Rangers’ chirpy theme song over the trailer for Pacific Rim: Pure greatness. What was already epic becomes even more powerful with “Go Go Power Rangers” lyrics overtop. It also gives us a glimpse into how awesome a potential new reboot could be. Hollywood, are you watching? The mashup was created by YouTuber Sean Warner.

DJ Earworm’s annual mashup of 2012′s Top 40 hits is finally here and while it doesn’t capture that “dance floor feeling” we’re used to, it’s dayam catchy.
I don’t know about you, but each of these songs are associated with a unique memory of the past year for me. Listening to the whole track is like a flashback of my best and worst moments — it’s funny how a song can bottle up a memory like that.
One criticism I have is that he didn’t include Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe,” which was clearly one of the most listened to tracks of the year. Do you think it should have been included?
I know this is really cheesy, but I love watching end of the year movie mashups because they remind us of the endless possibilities of life. While a lot of people rag on modern movies for being uncreative trite, Nick Kinder thinks differently. He mashed together the best movies of 2012 into a six minute clip and it’s pretty epic.
“2012 was arguably one of the greatest years in modern film. At least in my opinion,” he wrote on his YouTube page. “And editing this video made me realize it. There were so many great films this year. And no matter which one was your favorite, hopefully it made it into this.”
Kinder spent two months editing the video and it took 65 gigabytes on his laptop and over 50 hours of editing. The compilation will tear you to pieces during Damien Rice’s “One” timeframe and build you back up when it jumps into the comedies.
What was your favourite movie of 2012?
It’s almost the end of the year which means the very best and worst of 2012 is being studied, chronicled, listed and explained. “Pop Danthology 2012″ mashes together over 50 of the year’s best pop songs into eight minutes over a solid dance beat.
The music and video was mashed together by Daniel Kim and is available for a FREE download on his Facebook page. The complete song list is also available on his YouTube channel, including Fun’s “We Are Young,” Ke$ha’s “Die Young,” Justin Bieber’s “Boyfriend” and Katy Perry’s “Wide Awake.”

I can barely contain my excitement for The Hobbit to come out, let alone write something about the highly anticipated film. But what if The Hobbit met with the 1985 gem The Goonies? The epicness is too much for my mind to handle, so I’ll let YouTuber Lance Ford explain.
Basically, in “The Hobbit and Goonies Movies Trailer Mashup!” Ford combines the world of Bilbo with the adventures of Mikey and the gang and before you know it, tears are streaming down your face at the realization that one man has created a match made in heaven. Now some of you are probably thinking this:
But before you diss the idea of Bilbo teaming up with The Goonies, just watch the mashup trailer and imagine the wonderful world of total adventure and discovery that would ensue. With lots of weird creatures along the way, of course.

Shoppers are beyond excited for Black Friday sales — some camping out for days — but this supercut of video horror stories just makes me sad. The cast of characters is the same every year: stampeding shoppers, pushy patrons and violent bargain-hunters. Although Thanksgiving is a time to honour the blessings in our lives, whether that’s family or friends, Black Friday can bring out more aggressive natures.
CompilarizTV‘s Black Friday supercut showcases some of the busiest crowds. This year, stay at home and spend time with family. A low-priced toaster is not worth the consumer chaos and frenzy.

If you’re having a horrible day, just be happy you’re not one of these people, who have utterly failed at simple tasks. The only thing to say after someone falls into a fountain or kicks themselves in the face is “YOU’RE DOING IT WRONG.”

Once in a while a remix comes along that shakes YouTube so hard that the demand for a ten hour loop becomes inevitable. Razaltin remixed a clip about bacon pancakes from Adventure Time with Jay-Z and Alicia Keys’ “New York.”
You’ll probably want to listen to the mashup for eternity, or at least all day at school while you’re pretending to listen to your teacher drone on about the Great Depression. It’ll get to the point where your teacher will ask you “What caused the Wall Street Crash of 1929?” and you’ll just say “Bacon pancakes, bacon bacon pancakes.” (Source)

So right now the interwebz is currently freaking out over NoPetsAllowd‘s mashup of Ke$ha’s “Die Young” and One Direction’s “Live While We’re Young.” The mashup is pretty genius — Ke$ha’s voice flows seamlessly with the guys’. It’s almost like they got together in the studio and made the mashup in perfect harmony. Can you imagine Ke$ha and the boys of 1D in the same room? Hairspray and glitter everywhere.
This mashup is so catchy that it might be (emphasis on might) better than the songs themselves. It’s basically impossible to get out of your head once you’ve heard it.
So I guess now we can add this mashup to the collection of Ke$ha-One Direction hybrids that have been circulating the internet, like SmadaLeinad‘s version. At some point our minds are going to melt from 1D-Ke$ha combinations. Just make a duet already.
Listen to the mashup here:
This compilation mashes together the most incredible films of all time, according to IMDB’s top 250 list. Most of the films made it on the list with a rating of at least 8/10 or higher.
Watching nearly three minutes of film clips from movies such as Scarface, The Shining, Clockwork Orange and Jaws makes me want to salute the editor, Jonathan Keogh. He cut it all together over a mashup mix of Joan Jett, The Beatles, House of Pain and Cypress Hill by DJ FAROFF.
How many of the movies have you seen?

While these animals are all very talented, they have nothing on my albino shih poo Kokomo, who learned the old “bang bang” trick years ago. Admittedly, the hamster is a slightly better actor so I’d nominate him for the Oscar. This compilation of dogs playing dead was put together by CompilarizTV, who were also the masters behind the sleeping dogs and babies laughing at dogs compilations.
I thought we were done with these mashups? Psy’s “Gangnam Style” has become one of THOSE songs. You know, one of those songs that must not be named and that plays on the same playlist as “Call Me Maybe” and “Macarena.” The type of song that comes on and 80-year-olds are like “What is that diddy?” while the hip young-ins sit down and roll their eyes.
The only redeeming factor is that the mashup is with the theme for Ghostbusters. So yes, I’ll listen to it. It’s actually the perfect tune for Halloween.
Mega talented singer/songwriter Drew Tabor mashed up One Direction’s “Live While We’re Young” with Ke$ha’s “Die Young” and the acoustic version is pretty seamless.
I never really thought of it before but the two songs fit perfectly together, both musically and in terms of lyrics. This slowed down mashup has a campfire vibe and we can imagine listening to it on a chilled out weekday evening.
Drew wrote on YouTube that she’s in love with both the songs. We’re going to keep our eyes on her. In the meantime, her EP Glitter is available on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify. She also regularly updates her YouTube page with more covers.

You wouldn’t think the two songs would complement each other, but this mashup featuring Taylor Swift’s “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” and Kanye West’s “Homecoming” (ft. Coldplay’s Chris Martin) is addictive. I love the chripy beat of Swift’s pop song mixed with the edgier rap lyrics by Kanye West.
While we know a collaboration would probably never happen (can Taylor forget the past?) we sure as hell wish it would. ”We Are Never Ever Coming Home Again” was mashed together by NOxPETSxALLOWED, who has previously done mashup battles between Drake and T-Swift, and Rihanna and Skrillex.
Speaking of Taylor Swift, The
Handsome Hanson Brothers did their own acoustic rendition of “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” for Fifi and Jules radio show in Australia. Check it out after the jump.

Remember the insane amount of parodies/covers that came out every damn day of Carly Rae Jepsen’s infectious summer hit “Call Me Maybe?” When Psy’s “Gangnam Style” went viral I knew I was doomed to writing about the covers and parodies for at least two months. Not that I don’t like writing about them, but I can assure that if you watch too many you WILL start doing the horse-riding dance in inappropriate situations.
I was pretty sure that if someone combined the two songs (which was only a matter of time) the world would cease to exist. But here we are, safe in our offices listening to Carly Rae Jepsen vs Psy “Call Me Gangnam” by xaeroseven (aka Michael Simmons). And its actually pretty good.
