The Cure - Just Like Heaven (Tweaked acapella)
The Commodores - "Easy" (Instrumental)
Normally, I would put a long blurb here about the process behind creating a specific mashup. The hours spent getting for a perfect match, the hard work of making a 5.1 surround channel vocal track clean enough for mixing use, et cetera.
This time, I am letting the mashup speak for itself.
As heard at the end of many Bootie L.A. club nights, here it is.
UPDATE (February 12th, 2012 - piano cover!?!?): YouTube user "R10pez10" did a piano cover of the mashup. I'm still a bit speechless about that. Pretty cool!
UPDATE (August 2nd, 2015): As people have been rediscovering this mashup, sadly through a fan uploaded video (not made by me) put up on YouTube, I have gone and re-uploaded the mashup, now remastered! A cleaner MP3, and a FLAC (!!!) file, are now available!
Mashup first published: October 28th, 2008. Mashup re-uploaded (remastered - sound quality improved, but mashup NOT changed): August 2nd, 2015.

After my Smiths / TFF mashup got some viral heat, people started discovering my older mashups (including this one). In fact, it got a LOT of buzz online. . .again.
I've seen this link all day long, but finally clicked, andů yes, Robert Smith & Lionel Richie belong together. https://t.co/mkH5OS447w— Anil Dash (@anildash) August 6, 2015
