Cover Songs - Mashup and Mixup

Holiday Parade - Slam Crunk. This song isn't A cover song. It's THREE cover songs. This song had over a million views on myspace and purevolume when it was put up. It's a cover of Wyclef's Sweetest Girl, Sir Mix-A-Lot's Baby Got Back, and Soulja Boy's Crank That. It begins with acoustic guitar as they sing the first verse of Sweetest Girl. Drums then come in until the chorus. The chorus is always the chorus of Sweetest Girl with electric guitar. The second verse is the beginning of Baby Got Back, and the third verse is the chorus is Crank That. The thing about the song is that the three songs are combined perfectly. If a person is not listening to the lyrics closely they might not be able to tell that there are three different songs. The cover uses the same beats throughout the whole song. This is one of the best covers I know. It's not up for free download anymore, but you can listen to Holiday Parade HERE.

All Time Low, Juliet Simms, and 3Oh!3 - Careless Whisper. This song is a cover song of Wham!'s megahit from the 80's. Each of the artists take their turns in the song. The first verse is All Time Low and the second verse is Juliet Simms. Juliet Simms and All Time Low sing together on the chorus. 3Oh!3 does the beats throughout the whole song. Additionally, all three artists sing on the bridge. The cover is not amazing, but this song was never released and is more of a demo. However, Juliet Simms shows off her amazing voice whenever she sings. The song definitely seems like more of an activity the three bands/artists did for fun then a hit song.
