Mama Cass vs Fleetwood Mac – Don’t Stop Making Your Kind Of Music

Given the sad death of Christine McVie of Fleetwood Mac, I thought I’d post this old mashup here, with a positive message – yes don’t stop making your kind of music!

Instamatic Don't Stop Making Your Kind Of Music Mama Cass vs Fleetwood Mac  Christine McVie mashup

An unusual thing – a mashup that isn’t related to a challenge!

A friend told me the title (in not exact words) because I was unhappy with where my mashups were going and also the tumbleweed reception some of them get. So when I was messing with Fleetwood Mac instrumentals (quelle surprise) I realised another one worked with one of my favourite songs – Mama Cass’s Make Your Own Kind Of Music and that Don’t Stop would be a perfect musical and thematic fit.

So this is a message to you all – make your own kind of mashups, music, remixes – and screw the algorithm and the viral ‘fame’ – as long as you’re happy, then anything else is an extra.

Mama Believe Me Now (ELO vs Scissor Sisters)

Now many people have said that Scissor Sisters are ripping off Elton John…wrong they are actually ripping off the much less trendy sound of ELO…listen to Laura then Mr. Blue Sky and see what you think.

So inspired by that revelation (and wanting reclaim ELO as being not as bad as people think) I mixed ‘Believe Me Now’ with ‘Take Your Mama Out’ – again like Whitney I realised how sad that song is; about a closeted guy coming out to his mother (I think)
