You Never Give Me Your Montero (All Good Children Go To Hell mix – Lil Nas X vs Beatles)

Lil Nas X Montero Call Me By My Name vs Beatles You Never Give Me Your Money mashup bootleg bastard pop cover

New mashup and everyone is making Lil Nas X – Montero mashups so I thought I’d get down with the kids and have a go, since I love it and he has raised the game as a queer artist. Also Adriana from Bootie challenged people to make more original Montero mashups with more genre clash sources, so thought I’d have a go.

EDIT: New version of my Beatles vs Lil Nas X – Montero mashup. Yes still retired but I have unfinished business with that fricking acappella.

It’s apparently D sharp Phrygian. Really?

This is one of my favourite Beatles tracks – You Never Give Me Your Money – vs Montero (Call Me By Your Name) and is about that controversy when they well removing Montero from streaming services – what was that about? And of course I had to add in the children’s song at the end, but it’s more good children go to hell, right? Well us queer ones do, apparently.

I gave it a psych spin – set phasers to stun! Actually the acapella is quite psychedelic llike the video if you listen closely, a lot of strange production – and that auto-chorus/Vocoder From Hell which caused me problems otherwise this would have been up many days ago. Still not perfect, but if I get it 100% on my usual schedule, it’d be released in 2022!

There are more mashups to come, I’ve just been in a funk about polishing them, it seems a lot of work to get the last 1% perfect…but I have some really nice ambient ones coming up using my favourite band (not Beatles, no)

tbc – Helicon John (Beatles vs Mogwai)

“Master of the Orpheus Legend, The Death of Orpheus, fourth quarter 15th century, overall (diameter): 6.5 cm (2 9/16 in.) gross weight: 61 gr, Samuel H. Kress Collection, 1957.14.235”

I don’t usually do tribute mashups but was wanting to do something for the podcast to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the death of John Lennon, something with ‘In My Life’ and this popped out with Mogwai’s New Paths To Helicon 1 live at the BBC. Also includes clips from John Lennon RKO Interview on December 8, 1980 and a recording of NY FM radio the next day when his death was announced.

Very ambient, reflective, deep and very much me. And I don’t really care if anyone likes it, it needed to be done. This is for me.

The cover image is the death of Orpheus, killed by the Thracian Maenads for refusing their advances. Apparently “the river Helicon sank underground when the women that killed Orpheus tried to wash off their blood-stained hands in its waters…so as not to lend it’s waters to cleanse manslaughter.” – seemed oddly appropriate, but Mount Helicon is also the famous home to the Muses.
