What is it about Lady Gaga and video games from the early 90s?
With subtle modifications, I previously mashed up “Telephone” with “Moon Beach” from Streets of Rage on the Sega Genesis. And then there’s another Bad Romance mashup with “Flying Battery” from Sonic & Knuckles, of which the base line chord progressions are nearly identical. Perhaps Lady Gaga owned a Sega Genesis? The world may never know.
I’ve been on a racing kick lately, and I recently picked up Ridge Racer for the PS1. The crazy, quirky soundtrack instantly brought back memories. What happened next is how a lot of my mash-ups get started, I just start humming along a song to one of the game’s songs, and after that I pretty much have to produce it!
I haven’t had much time to do that with this project I was shooting this past week, but I did manage to get about the first minute or so finished. I’d like to share that with you now.
