Check out another mashup from DJ Santo. This mashup is called Call Me Baby Back, a little mix of “Call Me Maybe” and “Baby Got Back”.
Unfortunately, I do not like this mashup. I feel bad saying this, but this mashup just doesn’t flow at all. The lyrics of Carly Rae Jepsen and the beat of Sir Mix-A-Lot do not mix at all! From the start, the vocals crash with the speed of the beat. The two fight with each other constantly.
I really hate to say it, but this mashup would be better off if it was just trashed and forgotten about. The only part that makes this mashup worth listening to for me is when Sir Mix-A-Lot just breaks it down in his natural progression. The second Carly is introduced the whole thing falls apart.
I think the reasoning for it is that Carly’s vocals are the wrong key for the heavy bass, they are whiney and annoying. Plus, the songs don’t work because of their underlying themes, one is about them big ole booties, while the other is about…having a guy call her sometime. I don’t know, just knowing that makes it hard for me to appreciate the combination.
Unfortunately, I am pretty disappointed in this mashup. I don’t want to keep on slamming DJ Santo because he does have some good beats: View below for examples…
I feel bad doing a negative review, but I am just being honest. I know I will experience better in the future!
