The music mash-up has been around for a couple years, and thanks to the internet many DIYers are showing off their mash-up expertise publicly. Here's some of our favorite mash-ups.

Writer's Viewpoint: Disputing An Iconic Song List

1/30/2009 2:14pm EST
It takes a cataclysmic event to derail Overrated/Underrated from its usual Friday spot. Currently the Oscars have been serving as that disruptive force, but this week interruption comes from the most unlikely source: a sports columnist from the Kansas City Star.

This is because Joe Posnanski has suggested on his blog that we stop voting artists into the Rock 'N' Roll Hall of Fame and shift our focus to Hall-Worthy songs. Songs he deems "Iconic". His criterion for including a song on the ballot is that it be "A song that represents a set of beliefs or a way of life. So, I see these s...
