When Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys first heard ‘Be My Baby’ his life was forever changed. Here’s his exact words.
“I was in my car with my girlfriend and we were driving around … When all of a sudden this guy Wink Martindale—a disc jockey—he goes, “All right! Here we go with ‘Be My Baby’ by the Ronettes.” It started playing … All of a sudden it got into this part—”be my, be my baby“—and I said “What is—what?! Whoa whoa!” I pulled over to the side of the street of the curb and went, “…My God! … Wait a minute! … No way!” I was flipping out. I really did flip out. Balls-out totally freaked out when I heard. … In a way it wasn’t like having your mind blown, it was like having your mind revamped. It’s like, once you’ve heard that record, you’re a fan forever.”
When I, Sungmokoo.com, first heard ‘Be My Baby’, my life was unchanged. In fact, all I wanted to do was add more stuff to it.
I am very proud of this mash up for only one reason. The lyrics, “Making love to his tonic and gin,” has a completely different meaning when ‘tonic and gin’ is not included. On the technical side, displacing a melody in a major key atop a minor key changes things too.
Current president of the United States, Dumpy Donald Trump complimented North Korean dictator, son of Kim Jung-Il, Kim Jung-Un with the following words: “Great personality and very smart—good combination…I learned that he’s a very talented man. I also learned that he loves his country very much… a worthy negotiator … a very worthy, very smart negotiator.”
As far as I can tell, Kim Jung-Un has said nothing about our disgustingly overweight loud mouth excuse of a leader.
I would like to present, a mash up, a mixture or fusion of disparate elements, like Adam and Eve, like Nixon and anything else, and it goes something like this. A-one, a-two, a-one a-two a-you know what to do.
For all you Americans out there, Happy Presidents’ Day, although technically, it is still officially called Washington’s Birthday by the federal government. And they would know.
