Back when Kanye West‘s “Black Skinhead” first emerged, it soon became Web fact that the song sampled Marilyn Manson‘s “Beautiful People.” But once the Yeezus credits were posted, we all learned that the assertion wasn’t actual fact, as there was no such sample used in the song. But thanks to mashup mastermind Girl Talk, we now know what such a marriage would sound like. Greg Gillis mashed up “Black Skinhead” with Manson’s goth-industrial hit at a recent set in Charlotte.
For his second trick, Gillis paired Daft Punk‘s “Get Lucky” with Michael Jackson — but in classic Girl Talk fashion, he didn’t go the obvious route and mix the track with disco-leaning Off The Wall material. Instead, he chose the Dangerous classic “Remember The Time.” Hear the two mashups below.
