Justin Timberlake vs Bucketheads
[shaagi-button name="Sexy Back"]
I made this remix in 2006 after the original Sexy Back got over-played on radio, TV and elsewhere as most popular music does. From my perspective at the time, if I was going to hear this song play over and over and over ad nauseum, the least I could do was create a mix I liked for myself with some classic House from The Bucketheads in the background. So the old saying, ‘Necessity is the mother of all invention’ was definitely at work here.
The resulting mashup using The Bucketheads’ ‘The Bomb’ that you hear was actually my Plan B for this project.
Originally, just because I thought it may be funny, I was going to cross Sexy Back with ‘The Cha Cha Slide’ by DJ Casper. Now you may ask yourself “Why would you use the Cha Cha Slide to mix with Sexy Back?” The answer is simple: I was hanging out with several Chesapeake, VA area mobile / wedding DJs in ’06 and ’07. So I was hearing (and sometimes would be requested to play myself when I filled in for a friend at a wedding or whatever) Cha Cha Slide on a much more relentless basis than Sexy Back got air play. I wanted to bastardize both songs at the same time because I was having one of my more ‘immature and easily amused’ moments. Unfortunately, that version of the project was quickly derailed when I discovered getting a clean instrumental or even a small sample of The Cha Cha Slide was impossible because DJ Casper talks through it all from beginning to end.
