VA - Who Meddled With My Song (A Butterboy Compilation) CD1 Rock, CD2 Soul & CD3 Megamix


VA - Who Meddled with My Song (A Butterboy Compilation) CD1 Rock, CD2 Soul & CD3 Megamix

In music, a medley is a piece composed from parts of existing pieces, usually two or three, played one after another, sometimes overlapping. They are common in popular music, and many medleys are songs rather than instrumentals. A medley which is a remixed series is called a megamix, often done with tracks for a single artist, or for popular songs from a given year or genre. A cover version combining elements of multiple pre-existing songs is a cover medley. A medley is the most common form of overture for musical theater productions. 

Many of these medleys have reached the US Top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart and are included here together with a bunch of tracks that exist on albums. Some are covers bust the majority are by original artists. The third CD is a Megamix bonanza (some may be your guilty pleasure).  A megamix is a remix containing multiple songs in rapid succession. To unify the songs together smoothly, a single backing beat may be added as background throughout the megamix, although this is not a must. This backing beat is kept basic so as to simplify mixing and to not compete with the music. These mixes are usually several minutes long at minimum, going up to a half-hour or even more sometimes.

Include here for your listening pleasure are 52 Rock and Soul Medleys with a further 24 megamixes. Enjoy.
