PLAY | BFFA3AE’s Ultimate Mash-Up
Don’t let the low-fi aesthetic turn you off this brilliant mash-up by internet art collective BFFA3AE—trust us, it’s purely intentional. At almost nine-and-a-half minutes long, “uh duh yeah” celebrates the catchy bars, made up words, sounds, and beats of some of the most recognizable songs in pop culture.
(Enya’s “Sail Away,” Cat Stevens’ “Wild World,” Hanson’s “MMMBop,” Usher’s “Yeah,” “Eiffel 65’s “I’m Blue,” and Eve’s “Let Me Blow Ya Mind,” just to name a few.)
Listening to it to the whole way through makes you wish BFFA3AE included the tracklisting. Because the juxtaposition of each song in the mash-up would make for a great nostalgic playlist—even if you’re not already listening to Blink-182’s “All The Small Things” on the regular.
We heard the collective once performed this piece live, which is pretty impressive, along with the fact that it references such a good sampling of genres—from classic rock and RB to bubblegum pop and classic jukebox songs.
Our only question is: What songs are they missing? Tell us in the notes below.
