As part of the original mashup, Sir Mixalot (aka Greg Todd) told us that a new song taking the same mashup formula and imprinting it onto an original song was in the works, thus proving the formula could be implemented on virtually any song idea using the same tempo, same key, and same structure. Now Greg Todd has released the 7th song to the mashup called “Even Better.”
On Wednesday morning (1-7) when Saving Country Music received an unsolicited email from a “Sir Mashalot” touting a video that had been uploaded to YouTube back on November 4th of 2014, who knew that it would become the first country music viral sensation of the young, fertile year. Subsequently the video has gone über viral, racking up nearly 2.2 million views at the time of this post.
We complain all the time about how today’s popular country music pretty much all sounds the same, but is this really true from a technical standpoint? That is what one enterprising Audiophile and songwriter set out to illustrate by making a mashup of some of Bro-Country’s biggest singles over the last couple of years in a pretty mind-blowing and revealing video.
