cher vs portishead mashup!

good morning! even though i had off on monday – this week has been dragging – anyone else agree? i need the weekend again! anyways this week’s mashup from DJ paul v. is a smooth one – using a song that was way overplayed and mashing it up with a song that doesn’t seem to match upon initial thought – but just have a listen below! of course i’m a huge cher fan but i also LOVE portishead – their ’94 album dummy is one of the best! popbytes over & out for now…xxoo!


Here’s a confession: I love Cher. What can I say? I have the gay gene, and it’s one of the rules. But, after hearing ‘Believe’ for the 12-millionth time back in 1999, I wanted to scratch my eyes out! Then I heard this mashup, and it completely transforms the song from a rah-rah, gay circuit anthem into some swoonworthy chill-out. Of course, using the sultry sounds of Portishead‘s ‘Glory Box’ sure helps. Seriously – Funk That Sh*t gives Cher her biggest facelift since her 3rd nosejob…
