Mashups are like a third slice of pizza or a fifth shot of fernet; you never think you’re going to be able to stomach another one ever again until it’s sitting there in your face, and, well, life is short, let’s do this. I was duly skeptical going into this mashup of Taylor Swift’s “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” and the Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back”, but then I remembered I had all sorts of work I didn’t want to start doing, so this seemed like a good distraction from reality. I made the right choice.
The track is from Brooklyn producer Chambaland, for whose Carly Rae Jepsen v Third Eye Blind mashup we went through the exact same conflict/resolution process a few months back.
