SONG OF THE WEEK: Next Thing You Know by Matthew West-MASH UP!

I felt the need for a little Matthew West today and I found a Mash up!  Being over 50, I heard about these from my college age son a while ago.  It’s where someone blends songs with similar sounds to create a whole new message.  It’s very intriguing.  This person combined  Matthew West’s “Next Thing You Know” with Shawn Mullins “Lullaby” and “Every Morning” by Sugar Ray.  Of course I love anything by Matthew West but hearing this creative way of combining music really makes me appreciate these songs in a whole new way.

Give the video a listen, or just watch it to see the white Afro guy disco on roller skates.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=awv_LtEDgLM

I also found a fun video of Matthew West talking about writing “Next Thing You Know”.  I am fascinated by the story behind a song.  You will be too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2yxEbtDvpOk
