Empty Islands - Supremes vs Madredeus vs Cardigans

This mashup is in total contrast with the former. This Supremes' track always had a very melancholic mood, but you still dance on the the backing track. I have tried to enhance on the mood of the lyrics by using an instrumental track of the portuguese Madredeus and snippets of Lovefool by the Cardigans

Empty Islands
Supremes - My World Is Empty Without You
Madredeus - As Ilhas dos Açores
Cardigans - Lovefool

I Put A Spell On Your Ideals - Diamanda Galas vs Digitalism

When I was working on a Halloween track some months ago I was rediscovering Diamanda Galas. For those who do not know her, she has a voice that penetrates your spine and is definitely not your average top 40 singer. For that Halloween work I had used a small bit of her version of I Put A Spell On You. To use the whole track I needed something that sounded a bit dirty and nasty and I think this Digitalism track complements her vocals.
