Behold Mouth Sounds, a ridiculous 90s-inspired mixtape

Advertisement

    Fret not: you aren’t alone in your bizarre craving for Crystal Pepsi or endless pirating of Saved by the Bell. In recent years, ’90s Fever has struck something fierce, and the music world especially has found itself desperately backpedaling to the glory days of alt-rock and cheesy dance-pop. How else would you explain recent reunions by Pixies, Veruca Salt, and Slint, Weezer’s “Memories” tour, or the jam-packed “Under the Sun Tour”, which has featured the likes of Sugar Ray, Gin Blossoms, Vertical Horizon, and Fastball?

    Of course, if you’re like me, you’re pushing 30, probably married, possibly with kids, and have no time to dig out those old Aqua mixtapes and your best acid-washed overalls. So, for a quick and hilarious strut down memory lane, check out Mouth Sounds, an incredible new mash-up album by comedian/filmmaker Neil Cicierega.

    Spanning 17 tracks, the album boasts quite a few gems. Among them, five separate mash-ups of Smash Mouth’s 1999 single “All-Star”, pairing the anthem of junior year with Daft Punk’s “Harder Better Faster”, Modest Mouse’s “Float On”, the Full House theme song, Santana’s “Smooth”, and, perhaps most amazingly, John Lennon’s “Imagine”. You’ll never hear the line “You’ll never know if you don’t go / You’ll never shine if you don’t glow” quite the same way ever again.

    There’s also mash-ups of Smashing Pumpkins’ “Bullet with Butterfly Wings” and Loverboy’s “Working For The Weekend”; The Beatles’ “Let It Be” and Black Eyed Peas’ “Imma Be”; Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” with Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean”; and the “Bega Interlude”, which is 25 seconds well spent.

    Sure, not every song on here is technically from the ’90s (though many are), but not actually caring is perhaps the most ’90s thing we could all possibly do.
