Bootie Top 10 – Genesis vs U2 vs Negativland

Instamatic Still Haven't Thrown It All Away (Genesis vs U2 vs Negativland) mashup cover Bootie Top 10

I am seriously behind posting my mashups to my site and here – check my Sowndhaus page for the up-to-date latest releases, but this recent mashup made the Bootie Top 10 for June – surprised because it features Negativland, not the usually most ‘pop’ of artists (although they are popstars in my heart…) but the rest is very radio friendly.

It mixes Genesis with more memories of 1986 with ‘Throwing It All Away’ – one of my first albums was Invisible Touch and I still stand by that album – mixed with U2’s stadium-bothering I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For and the lawyer-bothering ‘The Letter U and the Numeral 2’ acapella and ‘radio edit’ which U2 famously nuked and is a part of mashup/copyright history.

I even did a ‘booper’ radio version – I asked The Weatherman if I could use some of his booper and he said yes, so I took some bits to edit out the rudeness, still think those bits are too strange for radio, but Stranger Things have happened (see what I did there?)

Stranger Things – Kate Bush vs Depeche Mode

Instamatic - Policy of Running Depeche Mode Running Up That Hill Policy of Truth Kate Bush Stranger Things

Edit – and now with video! Spoilers if you haven’t watched Stranger Things 4, so be warned.

Those of you who are watching ST4 will know what this is about…a very emotional scene (no spoilers!) using Kate Bush- Running Up That Hill (and further used in the series frequenty). The choice of Depeche Mode is because the lyrics fitting that episode perfectly – other songs were not a thematic match.

I debated whether to post this, as its NOT a tribute mashup but it just happened that Depeche Mode works best with Running Up That Hill – and it’s such an obvious mash it’s probably been done before (I couldn’t find one though) and as Running Up That Hill is shooting up the charts and this moment will be gone shortly,

And seems a bit unfair on the surviving members of a band to basically ban them cos one member had died? I don’t like or feature mashups that are posted immediately after a death, in the first day or so…it’s been longer than that since Andy Fletcher sadly died.

Anyway, Depeche Mode fans seem OK with it, and it’s been received very well on Sowndhaus and Bootie’s mashup page, so unlike a lot of random stuff that’s hiding over at the Sowndhaus page I thought I’d post this first. I need to update the highlights here – got a lot of things to post and a big Pride-related post tomorrow.
