Mashing Up The 80s

What is a "Mash Up"? It's a blend of two or more seemingly unrelated songs into a cohesive whole. Sometimes the melange of unrelated songs (often from different eras and musical genres) produces amazing results.

Some might consider these twisted monstrosities but I like the creative work put into them. It's the 80s like you've never heard it before! Direct links are below the songs for those interested. Right click on the links for a free MP3 download of each song.
