    A friend pointed out to me that David Ogilve did the mixing on ‘Call Me Maybe’ so these two songs were perhaps only separated at birth:

    My background in industrial music definitely helped in achieving this. I was trying to get the same feel in ‘Call Me Maybe’ as in a Nine Inch Nails song, making sure it had a pop sensibility, but with people not even noticing how aggressive the kick drum is.

    Who was it who said that Trent Reznor brought the cheerleader aesthetic to nihilism?

    • Preston Sturges says:

      I heard a nice NPR interview with Trent, and he was a real band camp/high school musical nerd. 

  3. Bradley Robinson says:

    Brings a new breathy, air-like quality to Trent’s searing social commentary.

    I like this.

    Ugh… I needed to clear my ears out by listening to the good version… and get my angry mojo back in order.

  5. Murphy says:

    I am so offended by this.

    FU Carly Rae Jepsen

    I really wanted to hate this more than I do. I just… can’t.

    They go together surprisingly well. I always thought Call Me Maybe and Call Me Al would also work well together, and it seems that I’m not the only one who thinks so:

  8. Greg says:

    The “Semi-charmed life” + “call me maybe” mashup works surprisingly well also.

  9. I expected more. Pretty disappointing.

    I can’t wait to hear this on Glee. It’s going to be awesome.

    For beauty-and-the-beast mashups, it still doesn’t hold a candle to the Prodigy vs. Enya:

    I shouldn’t like this. I *really* shouldn’t like this. Yet I do…

    I remember my first reaction to NIN was that it was singalong pop music with distortion in some places. Which is fine, but it just makes this less surprising to me.

    I dare someone to find a way to mash up early Swans with… anything. I can’t see how it could be done.
