20 Sweet: Mashups

Since so many mashups are being produced these days -- from incredibly catchy ones, to ones that literally hurt your ears -- it’s tough to know which ones are actually worth listening to. We thought we’d give you…well, a mashup of our favorite mashups. This list contains a variety of different types of mashups, from ones that just use two songs, to ones that use over 30 songs, to ones that sample a single song and place original vocals over it. We'd love to hear of your favorite mashups too, so feel free to post your own suggestions. Enjoy!

1. “Bounce That” – Girl Talk
