Why listen to one song you like when you can listen to two, mashed up together in a way that is both familiar and intriguing to the ear? I used to ask myself that all the time, but now I just listen to more mash-ups. Because it’s the right thing to do.

And today, the mash-up to listen to is Mike Tompkins‘ a cappella combination of Taylor Swift‘s “Shake It Off” and Bastille’s “Pompeii.”

It’s got almost a weird trance-like vibe to it. I could listen to this getting ready to go out, or trying to fall asleep. Or I could listen to it in the middle of the work day while watching Mike and trying to figure out, damn, how do you do that? Excellent job!
