Some R.E.M. songs have strikingly similar features, be it the chord progression, the melody or the general structure. Playing the vocals of one over the music of another (with some cutting and tempo adjustments) is often surprisingly fitting!
These are the mashup attempts I made:
- Imit8ion of Drive / Liver Ate (Imitation of Life and Driver 8)
- Radioswimming (Nightswimming and Radio Song)
- Electronite (Nightswimming and Electrolite)
I'm not a music producer, and these aren't very polished mashups. I put them together in one afternoon each, just to satisfy my curiosity.
