Most overly used songs in Mashups in 2010

While Qubic and I were putting together our lists of our “Top 10of 20 Ten” the inevitable discussion came up of the most overly used songs in creating mashups of 2010. Hell, some of these actually span over the last two to 4 years I think. Don’t misunderstand us, we still love a good mashup involving these songs, and we understand using them really broadens the audience appeal to them. BUT! We get to review hundreds of mashups a month and after listening to The Black Eyed Peas mashed up with whatever other track 20 times in a row…well, you start to crave something completely different!

So here are Qubics and mine list of the top 10 overly used songs in a mashup of 2010! Just for fun ­čÖé

  1. Katy Perry
    – California Gurls
    – Teenage Dream
    – Firework
  2. B.o.B / Airplanes
  3. Nirvana / Smells Like Teen Spirit
  4. Lady Gaga
    – So many of her songs are in so many mashups in 2010, she may be the most mashed artist of the year
  5. Duck Sauce / Barbara Streisand
  6. La Roux / Bulletproof
  7. Oasis / Wonderwall
  8. Linkin Park
    – New Divide
    – Numb
  9. Snow Patrol
    – Chasing Cars
    – Open Your Eyes
  10. Leona Lewis / Bleeding Love

    good topic!

    and in general i find beastie boys are WAY overused in mashups.

    but yea that list is pretty true for 2010, i never thought there could be that many teen spirit mashups in one year!
