With Occasional Music

In the fall of 1996 I was a freshman in college just outside of St. Louis. I'd grown up just south of Boston (in a bitty coastal town called Duxbury) and I was just starting to settle in as a Midwesterner. Campus was about an hour from the city and anytime we really wanted to go anywhere we threw a few discs into the changer and had a very specific set of songs we'd play in a specific order. The first song was always The Notorious B.I.G.'s "Hypnotize."

When I hear that song now it always makes me feel like something is about to happen!

I have a weakness for mashups. The truly excellent ones are far and few between, but when they hit... man, it just makes me stand up. Maybe you've heard of Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.? They've done this mashup mixing "Hypnotize" and the various bits from the Beach Boys' Pet Sounds and it's pretty awesome.

Listen to it!
