People are always quick to point out how “that song sounds like that other one!” or “the melody in this song sure ripped off that other one from 40 years ago”.
Do you ever think, though, that popular songs of a particular era sound exactly like THEMSELVES??
Some random YouTuber calling himself Sir Mashalot apparently did, and uploaded a crazily (and scarily) well-assembled mashup of six popular country/pop songs into one. He used:
- Blake Shelton – Sure Be Cool If You Did
- Luke Bryan – Drunk on You
- Cole Swindell – Chillin’ It
- Parmalee – Close Your Eyes
- Florida Georgia Line – This is How We Roll
- Chase Rice – Ready, Set Roll
The end result definitely shows that if you’re trying to reach the top of the country charts these days, this formula works…over and over again (as do the mirror-image lyrical themes!).
***Disclaimer*** of course, this exact same video mashup treatment could probably be given to songs from the rock/alternative/indie/metal/punk world too, but this one in particular is especially perfect.
