tunes i like tuesday: stayin' alive in the wall


Today's tune is actually two tunes.  I suppose mash-ups have been popular for a while now but I can't help but think the television show Glee has really brought them into popular culture.  (One of my sons is a proud Gleek and I know he likes the mash-ups the best of all.)

The video today is by Wax Audio, the brilliant work of Australian, Tom Compagnoni.  You can check out his website to hear (and see) the other mash-ups he's done.  Part of the beauty of what Compagnoni does is the video mash-ups as well.  It was really hard picking just one to share with you. I finally settled on Pink Floyd's "Another Brick in the Wall Part II" and the Bee Gees's "Stayin' Alive" known in it's mashed-up glory as "Stayin' Alive in the Wall". Hopefully you'll enjoy my selection.  What do you think?  Pop over to the Wax Audio website and let me know if you have a favorite.
