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
