SONG OF THE DAY (SUNDAY FUNDAY): Adam Lambert vs Queen – Trespassing (DJ DigiMark’s Dusty Mixmash)
Mashups are always fun, especially when they are this inspired. American Idol finalist Adam Lambert performed with Queen for a few shows. While no one can replace the legendary Freddie Mercury, Adam’s powerful, theatrical voice and flamboyant persona definitely made him an obvious choice. As is often the case with club tracks, Benny Benassi’s remix of Adam Lambert’s current single “Trespassing” features hard-hitting electro beats with all the vocals in the dropout section – I guess the theory is you’re supposed to aggressively dance, then catch your breath and sing along during the break. Lining up the Queen classic “Another One Bites the Dust” over the beats was not an easy task, as speeding up 110 beats per minute (bpm) vocals to a 130 bpm track takes a lot of talent (and time). Grand Rapids-based DJ/mashup artist Digimark did such a great job that even Adam himself tweeted out his support. If Adam Lambert does become the new singer for Queen, an official version of this mashup would probably be the ideal debut launch single.
