Feisty Stevens - The Zombies Are Inside Out!! (mash-up)

January 16, 2007 7:55 PM

This disco-fied zombie-dodging mash-up adventure takes Feist's "Inside Out" and lets it hang out with Sufjan Stevens' "They Are Night Zombies!!". Turns out, these two tracks were born to be together.

Damn. This has to be the best day in MetaFilter Music. And just 5 minutes before it ended, after it seemed like it was over, you come and give it the perfect closing. What a good song man, I'm delighted.

Thanks for your positive words and reactions! I was really excited about this one, too. The way the Feist song has such a sparse structure makes it feel like a karaoke cut, while the Sufjan song is so absent of a discernable lyrical lead that it feels like an instrumental version -- it makes the two of 'em work together really easily. In addition to the first thirty seconds of each song mirroring each other structure almost perfectly, made this mash-up such a ridiculous necessity. I suggest listening to both of these songs' original versions, and then listening to the mash-up again. It totally surprised me to remember how different each of the original tracks are.

I hate you, Milkman Dan.

This is just too good

Thanks dudes and dudettes. The song continues to reside over at my site, where you can discover further treats, too.

I thought this really stood out - when I listen to the originals now, they're each missing something.

Also, I put this on my podcast; see my projects.
