When Music Collides: Wicked Wedding


Today I thought I would start a new segment for the blog. I’m hoping you will give me some feedback in the comments - if you would to see more of this type of post or not.


We’ve got our monthly battles of the bands where typically two cover versions of a song battle it out for votes. This new segment is not a battle. It’s more of a collision of music. Sometimes the end result is quite amazing.

I’m calling these musical collisions, but they are more commonly known as mashups.

Today’s featured collision is Chris Isaak’s ‘Wicked Games’ and Billy Idol’s ‘White Wedding’

Give this a listen and tell me what you think





Not too bad, huh?

Is this something that you would like to see as a regular feature here on the blog?  Tell me about it in the comments below.

  3. I think this would make a great segment, though I'm not generally a fan of mashups. This is sort of interesting. I do appreciate both artists, which probably helps. ~grin~ Happy Blogging!

      I'll try to space it out a bit so it's not overwhelming. Thanks for the input.

      I troll the internet for gems like this. Granted, some are pretty annoying, but every once in awhile, there are some great finds such as this one. I'm really glad that you enjoyed this one. Thanks for your input.

  8. That was a pretty good mashup, but there are some bad ones out there too. Could be fun, as an occasional feature.

    1. Hi Debbie!

      There definitely some bad ones out there. I'm going to try to only use those that I like, and only going to post the topic every few weeks. Thanks for stopping by to weigh in on the subject :)

I love comments! Did you know that comments that are less than 8 words long are considered spam? So, don't hold back! Spill yer guts. Let me know you stopped by and let me know what you liked about the post, or what you didn't like. If you're a blogger, be sure to include a link to your blog, so that I can easily reciprocate.
