I’ve talked before about how creativity at its heart is making something new out of something old.
One of my favorite things in music is cover songs. I love hearing a new take on an old favorite. A close second for me is mashups, or songs cut together to form something new. Below you’ll find one of the best mashups around, and a good example of creativity that makes something new out of the old.
Now, this is no haphazard casserole. This is melodies, lyrics and snippets of video all chosen to work together. Does it work together? I think it’s amazing. Your mileage may vary.
