Today’s Mash-up is between two well-known songs, one form 1974 and the other from 2005. It’s “Disco meets Emo” or, “Dimo” , a portmanteau that I made up just now. I’m hoping it catches on (the word, not the genre).
“Kung Fu Fighting” was a song by Carl Douglas that hit number one on the American, British and Australian charts in 1974. It was Douglas’s only hit song.
“Sugar, We’re Going Down” was a top ten hit for Fall Out Boy in 2005 and holds the distinction of being a fairly listenable Emo song.
Here’s today mashup of these two very different song in something I’ve decided to call “Sugar, We’re Kung Fu Swinging.” Enjoy (but if you don’t, I totally understand)!
