hello. um. hope i haven't done anything rash by making this a new thread. i just wanted to alert the kinks fans here to a special mashup of the song "village green preservation society" with a mystery classic. you can listen to it here: comments are welcome, unless they are daft, coarse, abusive, incriminating, too short, too long, just right, sentimental, out-in-left-field, high-minded, or blasphemous. hope you enjoy and thanks for looking.
Whoever is responsible for that mess should be shot at sunrise! It really isn't even worth the time to say how bad that is...If KinKdom were a religion, well it is to most of us here so that is almost as close to sacrareligious as you can get , It goes against everything that song represents and stands for!... btw I got a rash just listening to that I'd prefer The Monster Mash or Mashed potatoes ;D

Noooooooo! I even heard a little bit of The Beatles (She loves You) in there, so that's both the bands I love subjected to this monsterous mutilation. I'm all for experimentation, but it just didn't work - sorry. But thanks for giving us the opportunity to judge for ourselves Abetterpepper

Didn't work for me either -- like crossing the streams in Ghostbusters. I would imagine that most ZZ Top fans would resent being mashed up with the Kinks as much as we Kinks fan resent being mashed up with ZZ Top.
For some reason it made me feel as if I were watching Scooby Doo cartoons. And that's never good.
It's a fun idea but I think the wrong songs were picked. The song Village Green Preservation Society is just so not right for this. I do like the creativity around the 2 minute mark on. Give it another shot but choose your songs wisely.

my sweet lord - he's so fine, what have i walked into.. i thought this was the "games and fun" forum, not the "comic book guy from the simpsons repeatedly assaults your artistic integrity forum". i'm almost embarrassed to say this, but the mash-up "works" for no other reason than that the songs are in a similar key and tempo. mathematical fact. if you wanted to go all "college-educated", you might even say that since one song has a silly lyric in praise of "china cups and virginity" and the other a silly lyric in praise of floozies and drunkenness, that the one would be an en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antithesis of the other. i'm a kinks man myself, but i don't give two knocks on a wooden codpiece about the kind of band loyalty that describes itself in religious terms so maybe that is part of my error in coming here. if the zz top guys were more gracious in their replies what does that say for your "religion", eh? i'm also a huge perfectionist and thought to let this one be done as a simple matter of economics. if anyone wants to improve on it, be my guest. but oh, i forgot, that would be blasphemous tomt, i really appreciate your even-handedness, though i would argue that the song really gets going at around 1:11 powerman, beatleman, you should know what i mean when i say, "sorry i hurt your field, mister!" i'll let you guys get back to committing the sin of onan to "death of a clown", or whatever it is you do here. bye.
