What is The Magic iPod?
Crated in 2007, The Magic iPod is a cross between a mashup platform and a time capsule. Filled with some of your favourite songs from the 2000s, The Magic iPod allows you to overlay and mashup tracks that you may not have though go well together. With the popularity of shows like Glee and DJs/producers like Girl Talk, the popularity of mashups have risen as well.
How does The Magic iPod work?
It’s so incredibly simple. Click the link … The Magic iPod … drag a song from the left hand list over to a track on the right hand list. Hey presto! You now have a mashup between two classic 2000s songs. Want to know the best thing? You can download the tracks and take them with you as well.
What are some of the best mashups on The Magic iPod?
In our opinion, here are 5 of the best mashups that The Magic iPod can offer.
“99 Problems” by Jay Z & “Snow (Hey Oh)” by Red Hot Chili Peppers
These two tracks seem to fit so seamlessly together it’s a wonder no one has mashuped them up before.
“X Gon’ Give it to ya by DMX & “Island In The Sun” by Weezer
The odd juxtaposition seems to work well and gives the DMX classic an upbeat summer feeling.
“Real Slim Shady” by Eminem & “Stacy’s Mom” by Fountains of Wayne
Like the 88 Problems/Snow (Hey Oh) mix, Real Slim Shady and Stacy’s Mom work so well together. Try it for yourself and see!
“Move Bitch” by Ludacris & “Float On” By Modest Mouse
Want to hear an indie rock version of Move Bitch? It works better than you may think.
“Touch The Sky” by Kanye West & “Seven Nation Army” by The White Stripes
When you hear the iconic guitar and drum combo start as Kanye sings “I gotta testify” you now it is going to be something good. The choruses work brilliantly together as well.
