Remix the 80s and 90s for me!
March 10, 2014 9:59 AM   Subscribe

I'm looking for songs that mix 80s and/or 90s pop with other genres. My favorite example of this is Orbital's Halcyon - And On And On Live that samples Bon Jovi's You Give Love A Bad Name and Belinda Carlisle's Heaven Is A Place On Earth. Any other genre is fine but electronic genres are preferred. Thanks!

Meat Beat Manifesto's first three albums: Storm the Studio, Armed Audio Warfare, and 99%. There's 70s stuff in there too, as well as a multitude of older recordings and film samples.

Also Pop Will Eat Itself's first album This is the Day... This is the Hour... This is THIS!

Utah Saints sampled Kate Bush's Cloudbusting on Something Good.

Eric Prydz sampled Steve Winwood's Valerie for Call on Me (although if you're pedantic, Steve Winwood re-recorded his vocals for the remix).

The Decade Mixes by Flight Facilities aren't quite what you're looking for, but something close maybe?

The Alan Parsons Project - Let's Talk About Me (1984) is used in Losing Out.

Slightly off, time wise, but the Sex Pistols' 'Did you no wrong' from 1977 and CC Peniston's 'Finally' from 1991 is one of the most amazing mashups I know. Made by Mark Vidler aka Go Home Productions
