General Mix - Marathon Mashup Vol 1  
In my on-going effort to introduce my BFF to awesome running music, I ended up compiling four and a half hours of mashups. I'd say I'm sorry... but, actually? I'm really, really not. Mashup music isn't a guilty pleasure of mine - how can you feel guilty for enjoying music which is so in-your-face HAPPY? It's all about celebrating music of all sorts, from the craziest, latest pop to old classic rock or jazz.

Some of the best nights of my life have been spent dancing to this stuff with a bunch of strangers just out to have a great time.(Thank You Bootie SF!) So the following three mixes have been created to spread the joy that is mashup culture - exercise to them, dance to them, or just listen to them for the craziness that is a Mozart/hip-hop blend or Bollywood + Metallica done perfect.

Links to the posts for Volume 2 & Volume 3 at the end, or you can go here to see all my running mixes.

Track List:

01| The Limousines - Internet Killed the Video Star
Party Ben remix - Yeah, I'm starting off a mashup mix with a simple remix - but how could I not with lyrics like this?
02| Titus Jones - Don't Stop Believin' In This Love On Earth
Lady Gaga vs. Belinda Carlisle vs. Journey vs. Madonna vs. Ke$ha vs. Bruno Mars vs. Leona Lewis vs. New York Outlaw - Mega-pop mashup at its best with a positive lyrical message.
03| Go Home Productions - Virgin O'Riley
Madonna vs. The Who - Because mashups don't have to have recent songs to rock.
04| DJs From Mars - DJ Got Us Falling In Hot Stuff
Usher vs. Donna Summer - Disco! With Usher! What more do you want?
05| DJs From Marst - Eine Kleine Big Booty Bonkers
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart vs. Dizzee Rascal vs. Bombs Away - Classical music FTW. I wouldn't have thought this would work but it totally does.
06| Party Ben - Hung Up on Soul
Death Cab vs. Maddy - Electrified Death Cab with a tinge of ABBA? Yes, please.
07| DJ Earworm - Low Lovin'
Flo Rida & T-Pain vs. Chromeo & Yuksek - The most "club" track on this mix.
08| Party Ben - Beat Sauce
Duck Sauce vs. Michael Jackson - Michael Jackson with a modern house disco feel.
09| DJ Tripp - Edge Of Love
Lady Gaga vs. The Outfield - Lady Gaga gets a ton of play in the mashup community, and this track with Outfield's quarter-decade-old-but-still-awesome hit is one of the best.
10| Mashup-Germany - Follow Me To A Wonderful World
Elijah King vs. Louis Armstrong vs. Uncle Kracker vs. Bruno Mars vs. Rich & Bitch - Uplifting lyrics that incorporate the great Louis Armstrong.
11| A Plus D - Planetary Firework
Katy Perry vs. My Chemical Romance - Katy's vocals just sound so much better with a harder rock sound.
12| DJ Earworm - Say It Right Away
Nelly Furtado ft Timbaland vs. The Egg vs. Madonna - Dark electro with a pop of Madonna
13| Mac Johnce - Freaky Kicks In The Dark
Foster The People vs. Dev vs. Mayra Verónica - The best mashup I've heard for the song of (my) summer, Pumped Up Kicks.
14| The Hood Internet - Giving Up The Sunshowers
M.I.A. vs. Vampire Weekend - Hint - like this? Then check out The Very Best, with whom both MIA & Vampire Weekend have collaborated with.
15| DJ Schmolli - Upgrade The Casbah
The Clash vs. Beyonce vs. Nelly Furtado vs. Ofra Haza - A dance favorite with three very unique female vocalists.
16| Marc Johnce - Know Your Enemy That Got Away
Katy Perry vs. Green Day vs. The Killers - A pop overload. No shame!
17| Tweylo - Roll Away Your Lazy Eye
Mumford & Sons vs. Silversun Pickups - And now, hipster-land. Again, no shame!
18| DJs From Mars - Show Me In The Deep - Classic Club Remix
Adele vs. Robin S. - This mashup fixes the only thing wrong with Adele's hit: that it's not quite fast enough to run or dance to.
19| The Hood Internet - Lump of Paris
Bon Iver vs. Friendly Fires vs. Aeroplane - Bon Iver with a beat. Y/y?
20| The Reborn Identity - Friday Night in A&E
The Smiths vs. Morning Parade - I never would have thought that The Smiths would work this well with an electronic feel.
21| A Plus D - Gucci Gucci Girl Power
Kreayshawn vs. Toni Basil vs. Le Tigre vs. The Ting Tings vs. The Trashwomen vs. The Go-Go's - The edge of annoying, I'll admit, but it's still So. Much. Fun.
22| Dunproofin' - Alphaboot
The Futureheads vs. Alphabeat - Pure, unbridled genius of a mashup
23| Norwegian Recycling - Miracles
Bruno Mars vs. B.O.B. vs. Gnarls Barkley vs. Britney Spears vs. Jason Derulo vs. Justin Timberlake vs. Lady Gaga vs. Leona Lewis vs. Ne-Yo vs. Michael Jackson vs. Snoop Dogg vs. Survivor vs. Taylor Swift vs. Savage Garden - Mashup magic at its best.

Like all of my running mixes, this album goes up in tempo from ~120 to ~200 BPM (with a cool-down song at the end). Total running time is just a bit over 90 minutes.

I seriously listened to Miracles eight or nine times straight the first time I ran across it - probably with my mouth open the majority of the time. It's such a fantastic mash and done so perfectly. Anyway, enjoy the mix!

This is fantastic and ZOMG I want it.

The file isn't downloading for me; as soon as I click 'download' it tells me that the file's unavailable and I should contact the administrator. Can you help at all, or...?

Grrrrr, megaupload, I dislike you greatly. Sorry, you aren't the first person to have problems!

I've added the mixes to sendspace - will that work for you? If not, let me know, and I'll figure out something else.
