All Day by Girl Talk - Mashup Breakdown

OMG! Check out this amaaaazing visualization (the lyric sheet of the future!) of Girl Talk's latest opus All Day.

I still don't know who Gregg Gillis is. Or if it's purposeful to even wonder. And I'd love to peek at his 1099-G. But for the third time in a row, this Postmodern Prometheus has created a string of the most natural-seeming gene splices. After only two plays, "Move Bitch" feels autochthonous to "War Pigs" and you can scarcely imagine "Dancing in the Dark" without a chant of "All the Girls Standing in the Line for the Bathroom" on top.

And hey - maybe the Mashup Breakdown will help answer some of those questions above. At the very least, it brings to the fore connections your ears can't make, e.g., "Black and Yellow" over "Paint It Black" or Rihanna turning Fugazi's patient boy into a rude boy, finally giving him what's he's been waiting for.

whoa! that is awesome!

one thing i noticed was that they missed the romantics and pistols samples from the middle part of "Triple Double" (and probably some other stuff too). still great, tho.
