    This is about as unoriginal as it gets. Gregg Gillis, aka mashup artist Girl Talk, has taken Kanye West's "Black Skinhead" and blended it with the song it (unofficially) samples, Marilyn Manson's "The Beautiful People". Kanye rapping over a Manson beat. Innovative. Gillis just smashing these two songs together. Not so much. I cant wait to hear his "Jack and Diane"/"I Think Im in Love with You" remix.

    While just as obvious, Girl Talk's synthesis of "Get Lucky" with Michael Jackson's "Remember the Time" works a little better. For starters, as Daft Punk have said, "Get Lucky"'s sound is an homage to MJ, not a direct sample. A lot of Daft Punk tracks would work well with "Remember the Time", as this excellent "Digital Love" mashup proved two years ago.
