Great mash-up music

I have a soft spot for a good mashup: two or more pieces of music juxtaposed cleverly can sometimes be more than the sum of the parts.

Does anyone else like them?

Anyway, I came across this mashup, the sweet voiced Carly Rae Jepson, played against the growling heavy threat of Trent Reznor’s Nine Inch Nails. Neither song individually does much for me, but the contrasting duet created when the two voices are mashed together is super.

Not for me. I used to be a NIN fan, saw them live etc and they were one of the most terrifyingly deep bands to see. To mix that with girl-pop suggests the former was something to play with or make light of, which IME it really wasn't.
Hence this one does not work for me at all. What might work better is a mash-up where the editor understood both elements and their deeper meanings/backgrounds, they complimented each other, and they were skilfully brought together. That said, I still rather doubt it can be successfully done, same as how I imagine it's rare that two paintings can be successfully merged.

You'd have to go some to beat Beatamaxx who can mash up 3 or 4 videos at the same time.

Another mashup that is way better than it sounds: Crowded House vs Snoop Dogg & Dr Dre- The Weather Episode.

I can’t listen to either of the original (great!) songs now without feeling the mashup is just a bit more special. It certainly seems to be a particular ear-worm for me; I find myself humming it from time to time and it is the mashup I am thinking of, not the original!
