The Ultimate Mashup

Since I get such a kick out of posting other people's creative smooshing of others' creative efforts, I thought I would be remiss if I didn't post the mashup that stopped everyone with two ears (which rules out George Weasley) in their tracks when they first heard it.

Roy Kerr, better known as Freelance Hellraiser, took the instrumental track for the Strokes song "Hard to Explain."

He married it to the Christina Aguilera vocal for "Genie in a Bottle."

The result, now titled "A Stroke of Genie-us," inarguably improved both songs. The far more articulate than I Village Voice explains here what it is about this new version that rubs us the right way. If you'd rather watch and listen than read, take it all in right here.
